17 June 2008 alpental

Pretty good conditions and one can still ski from the car. Left from the bottom of sessel @ 9:45, up to the top of chair 1, did a couple of laps there waiting for the mist to lift above. Then up to the top of chair 2 for a look around and lunch. The snow seemed the best between the top of sessel and the top of chair 1, so I went back and did a few more laps before leaving at 3:00. Snow was firm on the upper slopes getting softer the lower one went. The softest I found was about 3 inch ski penetration near the bottom. It's getting dirty, but still a really fun way to spend the day if you can't handle going to work.

Thank I might have seen you up there. We just headed up to the top of two and came down on some variable snow. Surface slough was prevalent but not too bad. Like Micah said; still some good skiing up there so get after it!
