DANGER Will Robinson, Grooming Anomalies Ahead
As you may have noticed there have been more than the usual groomer anomalies on Mt. Rose this season. Although easily avoidable for those high speed am runs with good visibility, the same cannot be said when there is fog, blowing snow or big crowds. My advice, slow it down in low vis when you can't see where you are going especially if its your first run down that particular run. Stay patient, I'm sure Dave will have his newbies in line soon. The reason Mt. Rose slopes are normally pool table smooth is that Dave Hahl is a perfectionist and I'm sure he has noticed the anomalies as much as we have. This photo was at the beginning of the KC Traverse at the bottom of Upper Northwest, an area that already sees its fair share of accidents due to terrain and the funneling effect on a corner.
