Hello Hunter fans,
Today, by most accounts, was the best day of the young season. Brilliant sun, no wind, temps from high 20’s overnight to near 40 now. First time we had sun and decent visibility since last Monday except for a few hours on Saturday.
All that great 16 – 18” of new snow was groomed out to perfection and all open trails were consistently excellent – Kudos to Skip and the groomers. The entire front was open and groomed except Racer’s and Gunhill. Huega had a thin cover sign on it so I didn’t ski it.
Only Wayout was open and groomed on the west side but there could be a late opening of Claire’s if it softens up. It was a real ego snow day! The crowd was decent for a Monday but not enough for a lift line or the need to open “F”.
HBK, all of the Eastside and Cliff to Ike were really sweet. Great coverage for this time of year.
We are supposed to get some rain late Tuesday into Wednesday before it cools off again.

It is 1:11 pm and I just heard the patrol open Taylor’s and Claire’s.
