Gordo Posted January 4, 2019 Share Posted January 4, 2019 Pulled into Fortune Valley around 4 for my first night ski of the season. The hill had gotten about 4cm over night and it was still lightly snowing. The conditions in the valley were great with a soft layer over a hard base. You could carve railroad tracks with ease. Skyline on the other hand was a little crusty. First there had been a NorAm Men's Slalom event during the day and Canadian/Chute were closed off. This left Sparks and Bud Clark open. The conditions on Sparks were good but Bud had been well skied all day and was down to crusty base in spots. Around 5ish the light snow started to turn into light freezing drizzle which stuck to your googles. We went into the lodge in the valley to dry off and eat. The bar has new beers on tap, gone are the marco brews and they now have Beau's and some Boréale special brews. I tried Boréale's Northeast IPA. After the eats we went back out and the snow/drizzle had stopped and the rest of the night was beautiful with temps around -3c. All in all a great first night out on the slopes. The bottom of Clifford in the valley. Marshall Skyline Dinner! this will make me ski better right? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
