Smugglers’ Alley

Dec. 19, 2013 vin alley

We received 2 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours and 18 inches in the past 5 days. We continue to make snow on Lower FIS, Midway, and the Magic Learning Trail. I ran into my good friend Vin in the Upper Parking Lot this morning. Vin is the skier seen here on the Alley. We did a warm up cruiser on Upper Rumrunner and Black Snake. We decided to ski Smugglers’ Alley for our next run and it had been groomed a few days ago. The surface condition was smooth with a few inches of fresh snow on top. We found the Alley to be too nice not to do again. We also found some nice powder on Upper Exhibition.
