Was there april 9. There was a good balance of wind, air temp, and solar heating on most of the mountain but in some places (like Iceberg Gulch) the balance was a little on warm side making things a bit sloshy. Likewise there were a few places (like Powder Bowl) where the balance was on the too cold side leading to frozen chunky that was less than fun. Lower mountain is a wreck, don't go below Queen or Rex until you're done for the day (and now that they have the nice lodge top of Queen open, you won't have to!) But Green Valley, Queen runs were very nice and should be fine shape for their "extra" weekend coming up. It certainly sounded like Crystal was doing better than Stevens and Alpental, which apparently weren't getting that balance right anywhere.
New snow that falls this time of year is usually destined to convert into something else within minutes of hitting the ground. At best turns into quasicorn and at worst turns into instaglop, so it's not really a slam dunk that inches on telemetry or snow report will translate to a conventional powder day up there, at least not past the first few runs.
