Comments CommentsBluebird day with Danielle. Winds were manageable and no wind holds. The western part of the mountain had the most wind exposure. Few patches of ice here and there throughout trails, major patches well marked. Loose granular skied nicely on edges, afternoon temps helped bring on spring ski conditions. Still a lot of snow, bummer it will go to waste once they close at the end of the weekend.

We started in the Sun Bowl while the rest of the trails softened up. Liftline and Kartwheel skied the nicest, and Wingding was great. Foxrun had some persistent glare ice, but later on got soft and choppy at the junction with Eastside. Stovepipe/Williamson complex is closed.

North Peak complex was good. Goosebumps and the lower portion of Flying Goose skied the best. Goosebumps is groomed out top to bottom. We made it down Eggbeater which was fantastic spring snow in the afternoon. Lynx was okay, with a major ice patch marked off, stay to skiers left to avoid. Still a good base showing on Flying Goose, easily 4-5' deep.

Remainder of the mountain off the Summit Express was in good shape. Blast Off had a few small patches, but at a good pace with caution it is still a phenomenal trail. Ridge was windy! "Slow skiing strictly enforced" sign was ironic because the wind practically stopped you in your tracks. Skyway Ledges were extra firm with a few patches, but could be avoided by taking Old Goat and the entrance to Westside. Hansen Chase Ledges were rough in a few spots but still fun. Byway was awesome for what little space it takes up. Chipmunk was fun prior to lunch, a mixed bag after setting up in the afternoon shade.

Sunapee which is now owned by Vail Resorts includes their RFID charge in the price, and the RFID card can be used at any Vail operated ski area.
