Granite Opening

Granite mountain finally opened for lift serviced skiing today. I hiked up to Motherlode early for coffee, breakfast and 2nd chair. The  coverage on the upper mountain was pretty good, got a bit thin through the rock-bands, and was an overgrown mess lower down except in the few places where the brushing crew got to this summer. The powder wasn’t deep, but consistent and carvable on the fatties. There were no lineups, and Michelle, Jordy and I lapped our favorite lines, which were refilling with the constant heavy snowfall and strong winds. After 10 charging runs my legs felt worked, and it seemed prudent to rest for the many powder filled days to come.
