Skied today ... sunny till noon, sleet at 2:00, wet by 2:30. Wasn't dressed for rain, so headed in. Mostly drizzly until 6, then misty.
Exposed surfaces that got wind blown after the storms are thin. Groomers are moving snow around to give you a path at the tops of White heat, Obsession, Risky, Rogue. Snow gets better (much) on those trails where trees protected snow from the winds. Hard in the AM and deep sugar late in the afternnon down low.
Shockwave is primo - hasn't been this good in a few years - big bumps, tons of cover. Same for Black hole - bumps are spaced out and icy in between in the AM. Top Gun - nice! Agony - great shape.
Lower Airglow is hurtin'. Quantum - ouch! Tourist trap - bigger ouch. Tin woodsman and Eureka were both very nice today. Ruby and iC have snow - no base, but are roped. Down draft and Vortex are growing some ground in spots. Some "staple trails" seem to be taking the biggest beating - lower Amex, Grand Rapids, Escapade, etc. The Palooza is still in good shape. Glades are very mixed - some closed in AM others roped all day (Monkey and Blind A).
So overall things are good, but the mountain took a BIG hit last week. Made a little snow here and there, but it was a loosing battle. Saturday two weeks ago was mid-winter conditions. ...so there you have it. Warm temps predicted tomorrow, then a cool down coming.
