Fresh tracks can always be found in Alta. Sometimes you just have to work harder to get them.
On Friday morning, Alta skiers awoke to find their favorite slopes--from High Rustler to Catherine's Area--cool and cozy under a blanket of snow 12" deep.
Several hours and thousands of powder turns later, the fresh tracks of the morning were only a memory. Powder thirst still not quenched, that's when many skiers strapped on their beacons, grabbed their shovels and probes, and headed to the Alta backcountry.
In this video shot today, local chef Jeff Moore takes the powder turns he earned on the trek up:
