Only the back side is open, and that doesn't include Big Horn or Kodiak. The quality of the snow is good, excluding the anthill, which is getting scraped down by crowds by around noon. There are some significant rocks poking through the last sharp pitch on Gray Wolf and a lot of gravel irritants further up the trail at the turn into the first pitch. Also, the section of Russ's Street beginning at the bottom of Moe-Mentum and down to the cat track is really a mess, taking a controlled side slip down the bit on the far left or a lot of hotfooting down the right. Marmot looks okay, but I suspect there may be equivalent issues if you venture down it -- moguls and ice, with some stumps or some such -- I'd rather wait for more coverage before I deal with that kind of steepness. Black Bear is quite moguled with lots of tree tops sticking through it. Hollywood is getting a lot of use and it's in typical shape. Caribou, the green trail has the best conditions (as usual) and the least amount of people on it. Goat Haunt, Whitetail, and Silvertip have a few minor issues. Due to the conditions on the only way down the front side (Moe or Russ' Street to the Russ's Street cat track) most people are sticking to the back side, so there have been some (OMG!) ten minute lift lines, which can be avoided quite successfully using the singles line.
Up until today, we've had a steady string of blue sky inversion days (ever since we opened on Nov. 19). Today started as such, but we were getting a ton of snow starting around 1:30 or so. As I drove down the mountain, the snow tapered off, leading me to believe that the accumulations will be confined largely to the mountain.
I think that about covers it.
