Sunday was another nice day, but a bit warmer, so I made sure to get there early. I was on GadZoom at just past nine and it was already warming up. I could see that the Gad Valley had frozen up the night before, so I headed straight to Mineral Basin where the sun was working its magic.
The groomers did an excellent job making four nice paths down Junior's Powder Paradise, White Diamonds, and a little sliver of Silver Dipper. I lapped them for the first several runs before venturing down Lone Star down Garske's Face and then a run down Schmutz's Hi Nowhere to a line down Not Quite Corn to Cry Me Gully and out Gheen Gully which was soft corn. Since Gheen Gully was nice and soft, I hit it again taking a line through the trees just to skier's left of Lone Star.
I did one more spin down Powder Paradise before heading to the frontside where the snow was not quite as sticky. I glimpsed down the Breezeway from the Ski Patrol Building and decided to give it a spin finding some FG that was not quite ready for primetime, but Regulator Johnson sure was as I sliced through the top layer of sugar for the cameras.
Back up Little Cloud I went for a couple nice spins down Mark Malu, another Regulator Run, and then I closed it out with two sweet runs with some nice turns down Rasta Chutes, which had softened just right and has some nice soft bumps. I skied down Bicarbonate to Gad Gully, and then down Trulock's Tricep right down to soft groomed sugar on West 2nd South. Another nice morning of skiing.
