Comments CommentsIt's one heck of a drive, but Big Rock is one of the best mid-sized ski areas in New England. Uncrowded trails and everything open. Just about the fullest snow cover I've skied all year, including out west; not a rock to be seen.

Almost all of the blues were groomed, except Asteroid and Meteor (still fairly smooth). Trails all skied well, particularly Snake and Galaxy with the natural banked curves. The Dippers were fun too, emptying into a narrow gully.

Of the experts, Uncle Bud's and Hooch were groomed and in good shape. Hooch is one of the neatest trails in New England - narrow and long with some good steeps.

Jupiter, Black Hole, and Don't Panic were ungroomed and fun, all emptying into the same gully. Jupiter was a lot of fun with nice bumps and some good steeps emptying into a gully.

Apart from a kids' race, the place was fairly quiet. No COVID-19 coronavirus here. No idea if they'll operate next weekend, but it didn't seem like there was a sense of impending doom.

Morning wind and flurries gave way to afternoon sun with views stretching from Canada to Mt. Katahdin.
