Spinning early season powder laps at Alta Ski Area

Comments by Donny O'Neill/

The lifts may not be spinning at Alta Ski Area quite yet, but the guys over at TheDailyPow.com threw on some skins and got after it at the Little Cottonwood Canyon ski area on October 30. Nate from TheDailyPow, had this to say on the website:

“The past two days have been good to Alta.  Receiving what felt like close to 15″,  Alta’s base is really starting to show signs of some actual depth. The snow today was light and fluffy up high and a little thicker down low. We spun a lap in Gunsight,  Thirds, and Eagle’s Nest and only hit a couple of stumps and rocks here and there. There was some sluffing going on in Thirds but nothing like what was reported yesterday on Baldy Shoulder. Alta plans to open November 22nd and as of now conditions look to be shaping up nicely.”
