Anyone been to A-Basin recently?

I was there a couple of weeks ago and it looked like it was shaping up pretty good, anyone been there more recently. Was the upper east wall open yet?

We went up Saturday with plans to ski the morning and meet some other friends at noon to watch the cardboard derby. It was my first time there, we arrived at 8:30 and left at 9:00. We couldn't bear to ski the three hours before the derby on the short and crowded icy/groomed trails. Just wasn't for me. We went to Keystone down the road for the day and made the best of it. Found some good snow in the out back.

I'm sorry we missed the derby, it looked like a blast. Over 5000 people there, tons of tail gaiting and partying on the beach, but it was brain damage conditions as far as I was concerned.

Carboard derby day is definitely not the day to ski at A-Basin, but it is the day to go there and party. That's an interesting way to experience the basin for the first time, go back on a midweek powder day and compare the two.
