Comments CommentsNice late afternoon/early evening at Whaleback. Took advantage of the $20 last two hour ticket. Light crowds, but not bad for Whaleback standards. Temperatures just above freezing, late afternoon sunlight, light breeze.

The man made trails were all groomed out and skiing well. Still some corduroy to be found at closing.

Of the natural trails, only Fluke and Davey Jones Locker were closed.

Ivory Run was groomed and skied well with only two tiny thin patches. Flipper and Whitetail were groomed with good natural coverage.

Did not make it onto Blow Hole, as the rope was pulled (likely just for sweep) literally a few seconds before we were hopping onto it. Lower remained open and had good coverage with bumps. Jonah's and Jawbone were both bumps with decent coverage and not too many rocks/bare spots.

I hope we get another snow storm before the night skiing season is over; Whaleback really shines when the days are long and the snow is abundant. There's a lot more to this mountain than is visible from the road.
