To Wouterr- this is internet, and if you are not prepared to be challenged, you should not be on the web.  Lighten up and have a bit thicker skin.  Its all in the name of truth.    

 

Easter ice is usually pretty nasty stuff, but since Easter comes during the Spring, the ice melts pretty quickly and leaves some really nice slush skiing.  So if you get to the hill a bit later on Easter, you won't usually have to deal with the ice.  I'd think Bonafides would be pretty good in slush.  Of course, I did have one very memorable blower powder day on Easter once as well.
