Pali Main Street, The Spine, Pali Face, David's Run, and The 2nd Alley were open for directed skiing from 1:30 - 3:00 today. The same terrain will be open at approximately the same time tomorrow Friday. With a forecast of 4-8" for tonight and tomorrow, the timing of today's opening was ideal. The snow "you guys" compacted is ideally prepped for some freshies tomorrow.
It is always a pleasure for me to ski my favorite run on the planet, The Spine. Remember, these are still early season conditions and the entire Pali zone is Extreme Terrain for experts only. Today I saw a lot "ski everyday", local, expert, A-Basin skiers making nice controlled turns at a reasonable speed. That me feel good. This is not the time of year or the kind of conditions to be maching down Pali Face. Take your time out there and enjoy yourself.
Special kudos to Jamie Ober and the Ski Patrol for pulling off this opening. They have had a very intense week getting the terrain ready. Be sure and thank these guys and give them a pat on the back.
