Yesterday was one of those day’s you want to hold your hands up in the air and scream “I LOVE THIS!” Temps have been in the high 40’s and the snow is a blast. It’s soft enough that you can really dig your edge in and lay down some huge carves. It feels like spring minus the slushy-ness. My absolute favorite trail is Challenger on the Backside where you have steeps, side-hits, close-by wide spaced trees and phenomenal views.
Another reason to rejoice – the famed DC STRAITS park is opening today! Our park groomers have been working hard to build this beauty and she is looking solid to say the least. The DC Straits is packed with sick features including staircases, wallrides, DC street rails and boxes, the gondola jib see in in this month’s Transworld, and more! If you are here today you might be able to spot pro Chas Guldemond who is cruising the Straits before heading off to the Dew Tour.
Come on out, soak up that beautiful California sunshine and have a great day at Northstar.- Julie, Snow Reporter
