Best Snow of the Season So Far

December 24, 2021

After a challenging day yesterday when most of the lifts had to go on wind hold, today was pretty much an ideal day for skiing up here on my mountain. It snowed and snowed and snowed some more, but did not blow so all the lifts kept spinning all day and every run was full of fresh powder. I snapped this shot of the village as I was starting my day. I don’t know the lady there in the foreground; she apparently was just excited about conditions and happy to pose.

I got to the backside of the mountain today for the first time this season, and it was just as picturesque from there.

It is indeed beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
