2nd chair at Lookout, they opened chair 2 on the backside. When straight over to back side. Runs were one groomer or two wide and if you like slalom racing between the treetops you would be ok. Bottom of backside into lift was pretty ugly with groomer contours and dirt, rock, stump obstacles. Off piste on the backside with breakable and nonbreakable crust and ugly would not suffice to describe. Groomers on front side were in pretty good shape except right at the bottom going into chair 1 and little dirt showing.
Left Lookout at 1030 and drove down the mt. to Silver. Up the gondola and found one run Silver Belt and it was sorta hard but very well groomed and in good shape. Lower Silver Belt at the junction was showing some dirt and a few rocks. Stickups were showing but not too many. I took Alpenway down to save the knee. Skied it twice, ventured off a few times and found about 3 inches of semi-soft crust so stayed on the groomer. I would say 1 more foot of snow and most of the runs off of silver Belt will be skiable and ok. Talked to Bill in shop and he said a lot of snowboard damage he is working on for those venturing off piste. He showed me 6 boards he was working on and they were pretty trashed.
Anyway sort of ugly.
