Zero traffic on 88. At 8:45 chair 6 opened in front of me, I did 3 runs alone on the whole chair. People started to arrive, I moved to the wall..first chairs over there too. Until I got to eagle bOwl, with the ski patrol opening it. First Tracks there. Lapped wall and eagle until my quads locked, around 3, the snow held up most of the day, slushing around 2.
Pretty good day so late in the season, was around 15 f most of the day, on a foot of fresh in spots.

Aside from the first tracks tags, I can vouch for the early AM opening of chair 6 and for the 8 inches. Disagree with 15 F, unless that includes wind chill at the top. Saw folks hitting a few chutes above Fireball. Some were tight chutes, a few had a 15-20 Ft drop. I took a more hidden line that was fresh, untracked, and much gentler on the drop. Twas a great day, for sure. Once I get the photos off my camera I'll post a few shots.
