All the kids deserve praise. The snow was soft after the big dump on Fri night/Sat, so the courses became rutted and challenging over time.
The course workers and coaches did an admirable job plowing, raking, and shoveling, but it's a tough job with a fresh 14 inches or so.
Some amazing skiing went on (all weekend.) I skied over 14K feet of vert on Monday between 9 and 2:30. The kids seemed remarkably fresh and ready to continue after it was over. A few begged to run the super-x course one more time.
