Comments CommentsAll of the main trails were open with good base depth.

I think Pinnacle and Ledges had just opened (as evidenced by the snow on the trees). Those two were firm, as the snow had not yet cured. Surprised that Ledges is rated novice, since it is narrow and curvy. Apart from the surface conditions, those two were my favorite trails of the day.

The novice terrain off the Pine chairlift was a little choppy in places due to the traffic, as well as recent snowmaking (two guns still going, but avoidable).

On the main mountain, Mohawk and Arrowhead were both good loose granular conditions. Exhibition was closed for race training for a little while, but reopened promptly (fresh corduroy on the sides).

Wildwood and Timber were also decent loose granular conditions in the Boulder Bowl. I don't believe The Rapids or Lift Line are ski trails anymore; the tubing park is now there. All Boulder Bowl ski traffic is funneled into Rabbit Run.

Chute, Route 100, and Indian Crossing were closed.

I pulled in around 11 and was caught off guard by how crowded the parking lot was. All of the main lots were filled to the brim, so I parked in the lot below the continuation of Laurel. Despite this, the five triple chairlifts absorbed the crowd pretty well. Mohawk Triple had the longest lines of the upper mountain chairlifts (at its longest, I clocked it at 10 minutes just before lunch), while Nutmeg was consistently the longest. Boulder and Arrowhead were only a minute or two, so I ended up using those to ski pretty much the entire mountain.

One-time $5 RFID fee had to be paid in order to redeem the Indy Pass.

After the cold start at Sundown, temperatures warmed into the upper 20s this afternoon under blue skies. Pine and Mohawk were busy, but otherwise the trails were not overly crowded. Despite being less than 700 vertical feet, the runs are decently long due to the moderate grades.
