I had also skied the 23rd. It was an okay day of skiing. I sticked mostly to blues that morning and Siberia Bowl because I was sticking with my sister so I missed all the good skiing. By the time I stopped skiing with my sis and had lunch, it was cloudy and snowing, with bad visibility. I got a priv lesson for an hour and we did Shirley Lake and Granite Chief, working on tilting my shoulders to the angle of the run and leaning forward. The visibility was bad, but the conditions were perfect. But it got worse. After my lesson, I decided to finally have a chance to do something at least a bit steep and challenging, so I rode up KT-22. O! the scariest time of my life. It was not that steep, the Woman's Downhill off KT, but the visibility was at worst. I could not see the texture of the snow right below me. Not to mention, it was pounding snow as stated above. There were 15 ft cliff warnings all over the run and it was probably 35 degrees steep. Just took it one or two turns at a time. It isn't a challenging trail (as I didn't fall once; then again it isn't that hard to fall if your goin that slow!); just visibility was horrible. Even on Mountain Run, the visibility was really bad. I called it a day.
So, I thought the morning conditions were superior; but afternoons' was REALLY REALLY and so on bad.
