The impressive storm of last week (click for video re-cap) provided such an amazing base, we are keeping a perfect balance of Spring and Winter. From the top, we have packed powder and the snow remains silky smooth. The lower you get and especially in the sunny areas the conditions are a bit firmer; eminently edgeable but firm nonetheless. Today has the making for yet another perfect day. The Triple Crown Vertical Challenge will be taking place today, be sure to cheer on all these brave skiers!
