Any idea if either they or Hunter have anything really left to ski on? I see they still have over 30 trails open, but I'm really leary to do the 2 hour drive to end up skiing on absolute crap (especially with my local area planning to open up with a few runs for Saturday and Sunday)?

Skidbump,

I know it's spring skiing . I don't mind the bare spots and slush, I just wanted to make sure that the terrain that actually is listed as open is pretty much skiable. I'll have to think about doing that drive on Saturday then, now to just find someone to bring with me!

Spring Skiing is just not for me. It's like going to the beach during in the full. You can still do it but you won't really enjoy it. And Slushy surface at the base really stinks:

It's like going to the beach in the summer. Except a lot more fun. Hero snow, scantily clad women, suntan, locals-only core scene. Bring SPF and carving skills or you will get burned!

The only time it is fun to ski on are the first hour or two. After that, you are basically skiing in sand dunes. It is still quite thrilling carving through them at high speed. Although I don't think it is worth the trip all the way from the city unless you could go all out for the whole day, which you definitely can't when you are skiing in sand.
