skied solo at alpine meadows today. my first time at this resort and I was impressed. not quite as gnarly as squaw, but many other amenities that I liked about it (fast lifts, few lines, hike-to area retained pow, good terrain, etc.) started off the day traversing over the wolverine, etc. bowls off summit six, but soon realized the snow way across the high traverse was SICK. did a few laps of Summit Six > High Traverse > freshies > sherwood lift > our father > cat trails > summit six (and repeat). was way cool.
the weather was superb today (sunny, cool, light winds), and although this made me want to give it a "good", I opted with fair + because I need to save something for the day I get to ski alpine with a few feet of legit fresh pow.
