Goat Dusting

The goats had a little dusting of snow this morning. It was fun to watch the place wake up on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. The Beach is active, but not as frenzied as it has been. Several skinners were heading up High Noon and Wrangler. There is a bit of a line to get a "Skier's Breakfast." While the coverage is still exceptional in open terrain, the snow is slowly retreating in the closed areas. I saw a few people wearing shorts. Freestyle and alpine teams are here getting in their last days of winter. The ski racks are starting to fill. The parking crew looks more relaxed. The sun broke over the ridge warming everyone up. Only in Colorado. Only at The Basin.
