I skied at Mad River today. The conditions were very good considering they had nothing about 2 weeks ago. I stayed on the single all day. The trails had p.p. over a harder layer. Top 1/3 of Paradise had some slick spots but overall nice snow to work with. Bumps are shaping up nicely on the mountain. Thought the trail with best snow and bumps was Catamount. The Chute had good cover too, good bumps and snow on skiers left. Lift Line below mid station was skiing sweet , the cliffs / drop offs had nice snow for the landings. Lynx was kind of thin in places, Fall line and Canyon also had good snow and bumps. The woods were NOT recommended on the patrol marking board at the top of the single. I skied a little bit of lower Falldise and although there was maybe 10" of powder, there really is not much of a base and lots of stumps were definately showing ready to trip people up. But all in all I think MRG is skiing very good and if you like the natural snow, bumps, etc. head on up. It was -20F up there today but temps are supposed to rise over night. Lift tickets today were $29.00 but I'm not certain if that will be the case on Sat. Get out and ski! Sorry no info on the stuff over at double or any groomers but the one part from bottom of Catamount over to mid station was groomed and it was real nice.
