How is the snow at Loveland...?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Wanting to squeeze one more outing on the mountain before i hang em up for the season...:

Has anyone been up to Loveland in the past couple of days...

How is the snow...

I can handle spring conditions and slushy at the bottom just fine...

No one that i know that skis at my work has been up in the last 2 weeks...:

Figured i would ask those hard core skiers that just want that last trip...

It was excellent Saturday. Four inches and more of new snow off of lift 8, and it stayed cold enough that there was never any slush outside of the parking lot.

Sunday should be warmer and just how spring skiing ought to be.

Thanks again to Don, Betsy and Chris for a great two days. I'll see y'all next year.

Sunday was pretty windy and somewhat cold at the top. The wind was really whipping the snow around. I never made it up 9 but people I know braved the wind up there and said it was nice. I went over to 8 and found some really nice snow. It was somewhat wind crusted but quite fun. I told some friends about my stash and they ripped it up too. No one was there. It was icey in the morning and the snow loosened up about a quarter way up the hiill but remained firm on the rest of the hill. No slush bumps under 4. They were pretty firm. Depending upon the exposure, the snow could be ice or loose throughout the day. The parking lot was full in the morning but by 3 it was getting pretty empty. It was a fun day. I'll be back on Sunday for Closing Day.

If tomorrow is anything like today you can expect some nice corn snow. The base is still in very good shape, maybe more snow coming in before the weekend too.
