Fun to watch Alta and Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC) pull the precip out of the sky as a first fall attendee. A few inches a few days earlier, and they claim 86.5″ so far with 20-30+ depth on the upper mountain.
The route was skiable up and back down from the top lot, to Catherine’s pass. The top 1000′ were tasty with another few 100′ of cautious soft traversing between rocks and remnant grasses.
At least a hundred folks out on the mountain this last weekend day of free parking till May? Thanks to the Alta crew for the full-open invitation with a Wednesday opening just 48 working hour away.
