The Good Wind

The "Good Wind" was blowing Tuesday. As any tried and true A-Basin die-hard knows, there are certain winds that are very kind to A-Basin. They fill in areas with soft and flat, buffed out snow. I think it is like skiing on velvet. Some areas favored by these winds are Dragon and The Knolls. Marmot, in The Beavers, was filling in yesterday.  My particular favorite buffed out run is, of course, The Spine. I love the "Good Wind".

Al, what wind direction are we talking here... W. WSW? Just curious. Thanks.

Based on the location of the trails named, I would think WNW

I'd hazard a guess that if you don't recognize the pic, you'll never know

Any word on the Steep Gullies? We'd be skiing them by now if they were still OB, just sayin...
