Back on the home hill yesterday for the first long ski runs of the year. With a foot of new snow at the lodge at 5,500feet, two feet at 6,500 feet, and up to three feet of well settled snow above 7,500 feet elevation, the skiing at Downing Mountain was great for this time of year. Widespread instability was not noted unlike Friday where continuous cracking of the snowpack while trailbreaking was obvious. Jenny and I took two runs first on the north side glades on moderate terrain and then the big 2,500 foot run back down to the lodge. Both had adequate coverage and we were able to ski right back to the lodge. We have moved the remaining bunks into the lodge bringing our toatl bunks to 9 4 of which are doubles. With the new bathroom and the extra bedroom, accommodations at the lodge are even more luxurious. With additional snow in the forecast it is looking like a great ski season is shaping up for us here in Montana.
