Comments CommentsAwesome day of spring skiing at Sugarloaf with good snowpack. All non-redundant lifts running. Afternoon blue skies.

Whiffletree complex skied well, particularly Springboard. I think Jill Poke was fried/closed.

King Pine complex was soft, nice spring skiing. Ripsaw had been groomed overnight, but was back to soft bumps by noontime. A little thin one part of one of the steeps, but otherwise wall to wall and good. Haulback, Choker, and Widowmaker skied well (bumping up by late morning). Misery Whip was a little awkward, as there was a ridge going down the middle of it that made it a little tough to get in tight turns/check one's speed.

Ramdown and Boomauger skied well. White Nitro was getting scraped, particularly below the net in the afternoon. Wedge and Lower Bubblecuffer had soft bumps. Gondola Line was groomed and edgable in the morning. Sluice was groomed, but Spillway was probably smoother in the afternoon on account of not being groomed/getting as much traffic as a result.

Narrow Gauge had some firm areas in the morning, mainly below the turn. Upper Competition Hill was ungroomed, but still decent in the afternoon.

Kings Landing, Scoot, and Windrow all skied nicely.

There was some carnage up high in the Timberline complex, as some blue ice bulges and wind scoured areas were visible; Cinder Hoe and Narrow Gauge Extension were closed. A little thin in places in the interior trails of the complex. Timberline was very nice though.

Snowfields area was initially closed this morning (including the groomed runs), but it opened up by late morning. The Backside was open in the afternoon, but I opted to leave that for another time. Gondola Line Extension was good and edgable. White Nitro Extension had some blue ice to look out for, but otherwise had lots of chopped up granular to work with. Powder Keg also opened up, second entrance. Ungroomed, but relatively smooth with smaller bumps.

Never got overly crowded, nor overly soft. Fantastic spring skiing and it looks like they may get dumped on again tonight into tomorrow.
