Comments CommentsAmazingly, pretty much everything that was open two weeks ago was still open today, thanks in part to the storm earlier this week.

Jet, Bonaventure, and Tram were serving upper mountain terrain, making it difficult to ski Tramside stuff (either wait in line for the tram or ride the Metro and cross back over). Chairlifts were generally only a couple of chair waits, but the Tram looked to be a few trams long (even though they were packing it capacity) once things started to soften up, so I only rode it once.

Jet complex is still in very good shape with wall to wall coverage on the top two thirds (including the woods). Had to cross two water bars on the very bottom of UN, and the very bottom of Willard is toast (as it was two weeks ago).

Pretty much all upper mountain terrain off Bonaventure was open, though Upper Can Am required walking or grass side slipping at the top headwall (the balance of the trail was good when sticking to skier's right). 601 was open and narrow, and the exit onto Taxi was tricky (blind single file chute). Upper Milk Run was still skiing well. Natural lower mountain stuff was melting bare as the day went.

Ullr and JFK were tricky on Tramside, as there were a few deep tracks set following the snowstorm that subsequently set up. As of early afternoon, the surface was still fairly firm. Northwest Passage was open, but roped soon thereafter, forcing an exit onto Green Mountain Boys, which was good with caution. Deer Run was skiable with caution on the side. Kokomo was still generally okay, as was lower Ullr's, except the very end, which required about 100 yards of walking.

Partly sunny morning and afternoon with a brief period of overcast around noontime. Temperatures did not exceed the 40s.
