We enter the weekend before Christmas with nearly the entire main mountain open for skiing with coverage that is reminiscent of February not December. We enjoyed a beautiful day with sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. Surface conditions are a hybrid of firm packed powder and frozen granular with puffs of powder thrown in. The lower angle terrain and the groomers are skiing magnificently and are legitimate packed powder. The steeper, un-groomed trails are a tad firm but absolutely edge-able with pockets of fluff in the troughs, on top of the bumps and along the edges. Overall quite enjoyable skiing for sure. Today we plan to crank up the Single Chair & Sunnyside Double from 8:30 AM until 3:45 PM with nearly all (Upper Paradise is Closed) of our main mountain terrain wide open!
