Food and Beverage Food and BeverageDid not partake, but the cafeteria was open (has been closed my previous two visits). Bar/tavern was not yet open for the day, but I have eaten there a few times in recent months; good food and very reasonable prices.
Comments CommentsRock skis are a must until we get more snow, or else your skis will become rock skis. As a result, we only took two runs (one off each chair) before calling it a day to preserve our skis.

Last night's storm did not amount to as much as forecasted recently, as we only picked up about half a foot. Overall, there was a foot or so of powder on the mountain where we went. Did not appear to be anything underneath the powder though.

Both chairs were running (double at 9, triple around 10), but the Pomalift was not (tubing was closed, but snow has been made down there). Tickets were full price at $59. No lift lines. The ticket window had a line stretching down to the parking lot.

From the top of the double, we skied Morning Glory, which had fantastic light powder in the upper flats. There is a lot of 2 foot tall brush/weeds sticking up though, which can make it tough to turn and could do some base damage. The one pitch on the upper trail was already down to dirt/rock by 9:45.

Down low, we cut onto Edelweiss to Coming Home, which were groomed but unfortunately had very little base. When you turned, you often hit rocks.

We then cut over to the triple, from the top of which we took the groomed Trillium. In my opinion this trail should not have been open, as there is a wooden bridge of sorts on the initial downhill which had a dusting of snow on top of the wood (no idea how the groomer fared on this). We then cut onto Pitcher, then funneled into Coming Home, which was a rock garden, hitting rocks every dozen or so feet, whether under the base or mixed in with the snow.

There were a couple of small piles of manmade snow near the bottom terminal of the double, but had not been pushed out.

It's too bad that there was no base under this powder, as it would have been great.
