Skiied at alta yesterday, man I have never had to ski on powder before and I suck.it snowed all yesterday afternoon, all night, and all day today. We decided to try snow bird today since it had the least snow over night. We took the tram to the top. When I got off it was so cold and windy my goggles had frozen on the inside. From there we skied a black that had a foot of fresh powder on it. I stopped every 5 or 6 turns because I was panting from doing the turns and the high altitude. We ended up skiing most of the day on what we thought was a blue or a hard blue. It turned out to be a green but because of the foot of fresh snow made it a lot harder. By the end of the day we were getting faster partly because the snow was a little better packed partly I was getting better. I love mogles made of fresh snow. You can hit them on a turn and its a nice soft hit rather than the hard stuff I am used to. At times I was skiing through pounder that went above my boots. This was fine till I needed to turn then I would generally end up flat on my face. Any way I am having fun. I think we are taking a day of rest tomorrow. Park city on thursday then find some where else for saturday or sunday. Warning don’t take a advanced beginner to the top of the snow bird tarm when 1 to 2 feet of snow have fallen and only blacks are openn also see my comment about the green earlier. And for those how know me that wasn’t my beginer am talking about. She fly in later in the week.
