It was awful chilly this morning so I waited until about 11am to head up to the mountain and boy was it ever worth it!
I thought that I'd get take some nice cruising runs with some bumpers to try to keep warm. But, once I got off Crescent Lift and saw Jupiter Peak looking as if it might be open, I quickly traversed to McConkey's Lift where I found that the "Pearly Gates" were indeed open. From there, I did a quick hike over to Pinyon Ridge where I got in some nice turns while scoping where the real goods were - Puma Bowl. Two laps of Pioneer to Jupiter to High West to Puma and I was a very happy camper - with the pics below to prove it (just Scotts and Pinecone to go!):
