Comments CommentsFirst, an observation on communications/marketing. With heavy winds in the forecast (we were already booked prior to the wind forecast), there was no mention of wind holds in the advance snow report. In addition, just prior to opening, I was within earshot of the person manning the phone line and they were telling callers that nothing was on windhold yet. Yet, when I walked over to tickets, the manager refused to sell tickets because he didn't think the area would even open due to the wind.

Anyway, the SuperQuad (running on diesel) and shorter Double Runner were the only upper mountain chairlifts initially open. The T-Bar spun briefly, but then went on hold. We skied the morning, then departed just before they closed the entire mountain due to the winds.

We only took one run off the T-Bar...brutal winds up top with some deep drifts and other areas scoured down to ice.

Great skiing off the SuperQuad. They had groomed a lot of the trails off that lift, but there was fresh powder on top. Visibility, on the other hand, was quite tough, especially with wind driven snow. Powder wasn't overly dense, no was there a crust, so I don't think it changed over at all yesterday.

Should be some awesome skiing when the winds let up.
