You can redeem your Indy Pass at the ticket window, but it is a $5 fee if you don't have a Berkshire East/Catamount RFID.

From the top, Sidewinder was open top to bottom but so so. Fisher's Fluke hasn't seen snowmaking yet. Shawenon (new trail) was in good shape, as was Marty's Run (new steeper trail), Alley Cat, and Glade to On Stage. Chute into Off Stage was a little thinner with some unexpected dips, but still decent.

Ridge Run was in good shape. The double diamonds have not seen any snowmaking yet, but the two new ones look steep (especially Ripper). Turnpike also hasn't seen any snowmaking yet.

The Promenade Triple hasn't been set up for the season yet (no snow on top of that peak), but the Meadows Triple was running. Mountain View and Walter's Way have steeper intermediate pitches and were in good shape. Other than a few crossovers, Sunrise, and Holiday, most of the other trails were open and decent (though not yet wall to wall).

Only encountered waits of a few chairs this morning, though it looked like the quad was up to a minute or two with the lunch time rush.

The base facilities are much improved, as is the snowmaking. Even though it's a Massachusetts/New York mountain, it skis as big as some mountains in Vermont/New Hampshire/Maine and has excellent beginner terrain and legit expert steeps.
