What a great day. The seldom open East Castle at Alta Ski Area was open today. I can’t say no to an opportunity like that. To get to the top, one must left side-step for about 45 minutes. It’s a hell of a workout.
The main face was full of avalanche debris and was a thick breakable crust. Not optimal skiing. But the face you arrive at prior to the main face had some decent snow which was much more skiable.
