Comments CommentsRecent weather mixes have definitely left their mark. It was a morning to ski in the sun, and avoid the shade.

Ragged Peak was practically bullet proof in some spots, but were softening up as the temps came up and sun changed angles. From the first chair ride you could tell it had been glazed over, and absolutely set up overnight. Around 11:00 Headwall, Village Green and Upper Chutes had soften up to get a good edge in, Exhibition only had activity on the right hand side (narrow) looking up the mountain - where the sun was shining. I avoided Birches because only the top half was seeing sun and the rest was in the shade. Crewcut was seeing some sun around the same time, but hadn't seen it long enough to make it appealing before I had to head out. Took a trip down Wild Ride since I could tell the sun had been on it for a bit, but since I am not a jumper, it was a slow run still with plenty of chattering skis and forced edging. Also Sweepstake was roped off and from the drive in can tell it is showing bare spots.

Heard that Speare Peak had been groomed last, and headed there for second run. True story. It was in much better shape, and also softened up to spring snow by 11:00. People were lapping Showboat, and racers had started practicing on Yankee, but I managed a few runs on that before they took over. It was open to the public, but they had staggered their courses pretty much the whole way down the upper part of the trail making it a more cautious run.

Mid afternoon was most likely going to be the best time to get everywhere without scratching, but I had to do the adult thing and go to work.
