Snow King is almost ALWAYS a sheet of ice - sometimes it's just shinier than at other times.
That's why it's so popular with racers. I'll be skiing that sheet of ice this Friday afternoon in the team-racing Margarita Cup. Can't wait.
But to answer your question - JHMR was skiing GREAT today on the groomers and the north-facing bump lines.
Hobacks and Lower Faces, however, should be tackled only at your own risk unless the weather gets lots snowier or lots warmer than currently forecast.
Sounds like I should be bringing my K2 Rictor 90's... Been skiing them all season in New England, both before and after it got Really Good Here. The other option is my Wailer 99's, but without fresh snow, the extra width will probably just get in the way.
Hobacks and Lower Faces "at your own risk"? Does that mean "slide for life" if you go down?
