Just As Expected

Today went just about exactly as we expected. We reported 12 inches of new snow, 21 inches in two days. I call that 2 feet. When the clouds cleared, the views were amazing. Check out the East Wall picture from this morning. The skiing was tremendous. Our parking lots filled at 9:40. By 11:45 enough people had left that we stopped staffing the entrances and let people park just about wherever. People that arrived before 9:40 had one raging ski day. People that arrived after 11:45 had one raging ski day. Several people that arrived between 9:40 and 11:45 were unhappy. 18 cars that were parked atrociously on the highway were towed.
For the next couple of days, get here early or come in the afternoon. Read yesterday's blog post. Saturday and Sunday the Summit Stage is running. Park at River Run in Keystone and catch the bus. 
CARPOOL. CARPOOL. CARPOOL.
With a little planning, it is easy to get here and have fun.
The day was magical.
