Powder Alert at Saddleback!

Isaac dominating a huge powder drift at Saddleback

had three really good days at Saddleback. The new snow on Saturday made the skiing outstanding.

Friday the 24th was the calm before the storm. It was warm on Thursday so some of the groomer trails were a bit chunky but everything had very good coverage. 

Saturday the 25th brought the snow. We woke up to 10 inches of fresh new snow. It was windy, but not windy enough to close the lifts. Everything skied really really well. Groomers, natural trails, woods... it was all Outstanding. One of our better days we have had in a long, long time.

Sunday the 26th brought a very strong, cold wind but the winds subsided by mid-day getting all the lifts turning. The groomers were wind swept, but one could find pockets of wind blown powder on skiers left of trails. You had to ski these a bit carefully as the wind blown snow is grabby and slows you down quickly, but it was still loads of fun,

Looks like maybe some more mid-week snow! Keep it coming!
