Yes, the top (and the middle, and the bottom) of White Heat was icy. But, so was every trail I was on except for those blues over by the Grand Summit. I guess they don't get skied out as much as the others, I suppose. Basically, the wind blew so much that where there was solid ice, it was exposed. The bottom of upper Downdraft was sheer ice, but the top was great. T2 was nice. North Peak was crowded and only Grand Rapids wasn't skied out. American Express was sketchy, but really not bad at all considering the wind. Only did the lower part of Obsession, but it was fine.
Really, I can't remember everything. But, as I said, it was much better overall than I expected. We really had a great weekend.
Hmm.. Looks like you and I skiied mutually exclusive trails in the same set of moutains
.. I should add that Idid all my skiing in NE this year and these truly have been the best condition amongst the 15 or so days I have hit the ASC resorts..
It was windy, I agree, but once you hit the trails it wasnt a factor.. I hit white heat on Saturday afternoon and it was pretty good save for the top.. Maybe it progressvely bad over the weekend..The top of obsession though was cat-tracks carved on Ice..
I did lap after lap on Ovation, black hole, airglow, caramba, excalibur, rouge angel etc and the snow was perfect all weekend.. I think this is a clue as to which mountains to hit depending on the wind direction
