OK, two bits of good news.
First, today, Wednesday, Grizzly Road, Upper Slalom Slope, and Powderkeg will be open from noon to 3 PM. Skiers and riders can access that terrain with a 5 minute hike from the West Wall saddle. I did ski both Grizzly Road and Upper Middle Chute this morning. Grizzly was the perfect groomer and Middle Chute was powder. High marks for both.
Second, tomorrow, Thursday, Pallavicini Lift will open for the season. The lift will initially access Grizzly Road and the West Wall. As snowfall conditions allow, there will be periodic openings on Slalom Slope, Radical, and eventually Standard and 13 Cornices. The lift opens at 9 AM weekdays and 8:30 AM weekends and holidays. The current holiday lift times are applicable now through New Year's Day.
It is always good to have Pali Lift open.
