Live tr - The carnage is gruesome. Almost too much to bear. Pics coming later. Everything on wind hold except double runner as of 9:30. Updates coming
About 100 or so people out despite limited terrain and lift access. A large Canadian contingent is here. They are friendly, albeit disappointed. Skidder has all the snow...doesn't seem to be a bare spot on it. Most stuff off the quad is out of play. The headwall on Hayburner is toast. Comp hill is out. They say Narrow Gauge is open when the superquad spins. Same with King's landing. Still some skiable stuff but the last drop is almost totally exposed.
10:00 - top of double runner open. Have to clip out and walk across mud/rocks/slush to get to Sluice. Boney at best. Gashed my bases on a few loose rocks.
11:30 - All lifts on hold. I am done for the day. Gonna head back and grab the bike.
If the weather doesn't play nice Sunday, it could be real bad. Since the top wasn't open, I am not sure how the entrance to most of the big stuff looks. They claim Tote Road is open but it is hard to tell. If nothing else, all the woods are done, the snowfields are clearly done, king pine is also done. Sluice Chute is open but once it connects to Sluice Proper, there is a ton of debris. The current thinking is that they are going to try to make it to Reggae weekend.
When I turned "Oh my gosh" corner this morning, my stomach dropped. I had hoped that they could survive most of this week but...well...you get the idea.
