Comments CommentsIncredible conditions on nearly every run -- 2 to 6 inches of powder on top of packed powder. Some of the best skiing conditions I've experienced in several seasons. Weather was snowy but not windy, with the temperature around 20F.

On my previous visit to the Skiway, in early February, Worden was closed for an intercollegiate race. It was open yesterday -- and virtually empty. After a warm-up run on the John Meck trails, I skied Worden all morning, focusing on the untracked powder at the edges. What a joy.

Took a tumble on a connector with choppy snow on top of choppy crust, otherwise everything open was well groomed and coated in powder. Some choppy crust on the part of the Face closest to the Holt lift.

On the Holt side, Green Pastures, Lift Line, Lower Lift Line and Lower Gauntlet were closed. On the Winslow side, Lower Howard Chivers and Cum Laude were closed. The best Winslow run yesterday was Lower Thomas.

At the ticket window, I was told that Sunday the 17th was jammed and I heard stories of similar big crowds at Loon and Cannon on Saturday and Sunday. Yesterday at the Skiway, which is becoming one of my favorite ski areas, there was hardly anyone; I skied right up to the chair on nearly every run. Entire trails were completely empty and covered in fantastic snow.
