March 22, 2024. better than expected.

First day of the mid week three-day tour.

We took a recon flight this morning during morning orientations and found the best looking snow surface throughout the range in Long and Segunda.

We usually don’t travel south on day 1 of the tour because it is a slow paced morning with orientations.

This time of year, heat is your friend so we took the 40-minute vehicle shuttle south to the Southern Rubies.

It was worth the drive, finding a smooth snow surface, with a variety of surface temperature conditions throughout the day.

9 runs of spring skiing on solar aspects with pockets of cold snow on north faces.

Active weather returns to the Great Basin tonight with increasing chances for precipitation for the next several days.

Better than expected today.

See you in the morning.
