I attended the grand opening of Summit West in the morning, then in need of a little more stoke toured up Alpental. Ran into Gib at the bottom, and he thought they would close the area to uphill travel beginning Sunday. The ski area had actually gotten a groomer up Debbie's Gold. Looked like some pretty good driving. Anyhow, snow was about 4-6 inches over a firmer layer. Made for great skinning and good skiing.
Top lift shack still need some work. Notice the roof is not complete.
