No new snow, temps are warm, and the lower mountain snowpack is patchy. BUT the skiing and riding is great. I lapped East and West Bowl pretty much exclusively. Itís all soft, spring-like, hero snow. Normally we enjoy these sort of conditions in April, but itís hard to complain after a day like today. Itís just too bad the snow down low is struggling.
For tomorrow, definitely stay high on the mountain. The terrain below Hooter is spotty. There are routes through to the base lodge and lifts. The Porcupine beginner area still has plenty of snow. All chairlifts are running. Ptarmigan and Black Bear close at 3:30pm, the bowls closing at least 30 minutes before last chair.Hooter and Porcupine close at 4:00pm. All mountain services are open. Mountain Lift is be serving hot drinks, soup, and sandwiches out of the Eagleís Nest. Roll Back Weekend is set for March 5th & 6th. The Eaglecrest Retail shop is selling T-Shirts for just $13.
Again, conditions are nice all over. Itís corn skiing. Donít rush to judgement based on the view from the parking!
