On Sunday, February 16th, 2020, the 142nd anniversary of the birth of Pamela Colman Smith, visionary occultist and illustrator of the Waite-Smith Tarot deck, future good skiing was predicted for the Alturas Lake Ski Area. All trails were groomed and, for one day only, renamed in honor of the cards of the Tarot. It looked like old groomer Davinius had the Ginzu groomer badly stuck when he veered off trail on “Hanged Man” but with a bit of tugging and a modicum of effort he drove away clean. “Wheel of Fortune” was groomed for skate and classic and looked like it might just be great. “The Hermit” was double groomed for skating with a smattering of classic grooves. “The High Priestess” and “The King of Cups” both sported nice corduroy but were a bit snow blown in open meadows. And finally, “The Fool” once again got a nod from Davinius as the best route bar none.
