Comments CommentsAbout 3 inches of powder fell overnight, making for fantastic conditions. It was like a private ski area this morning with less than a dozen skiers (more arriving around lunchtime).

All trails were open, with the exception of Willow Way (it had been groomed at some point, but it looks like a waterbar couldn't be covered). They had groomed during the storm, which helped bond some fresh snow with the boilerplate underneath. This, coupled with another inch or so that fell after the grooming, made for fantastic conditions. Pine Sluice Cutoff (double diamond) hadn't been groomed at all this season and thus was tricky. Everything else was good going. Despite not having snowmaking, there was good snowpack everywhere and we saw no rocks or dirt.

Very neat to have brief views (due to clouds) of Mt. Katahdin.

Though the area is only about 432 vertical feet, there are enough trails that it feels bigger than the stats suggest. Other than Pine Sluice Cutoff, there isn't anything terribly steep. Nevertheless, they are some neat, narrow trails, as well as some fun double fall lines. We ended up skiing longer than planned and could have kept going if we had more time.
