    South facing slopes are getting the normal March sun crust even with the low temps but all North facing slopes are still mid winter conditions. The winds on Tues/Wed really pushed it around, hiking NW facing slopes on stout wind slab and some exposed suncrust. But the Northeast drainages were boot top powder with knee deep drift slabs. Some variable punchiness but great skiing. Enjoy, snow depths are deep, limb management becoming more of an issue than whats under your feet.

    We don't have the same Beta as Kingdom-tele. We were in the woods all day Thursday. For us, all the woods were in play, most all of upper glades were tracked, but with plenty of loose, wonderfully dry pow. ZERO crust. We didn't see any scratchies and we covered the whole range from east to west. The boot stuff we found was only in the lower angle woods, which could be challenging to get any reasonable speed on. We didn't go deep into any drainage ruts. We had zero problems with base depth, and almost never touched anything beneath other than snow. We went wherever we wanted to. Ditto the limbs. I got face bashed twice with some 1" branches; that was the worst of the day.

    It's mid-winter conditions right now. Fantastic day. One AZer was skiing with such abandon he kept drifting way OOB and at one point needed to hitch a ride back to base! Get out by next Wednesday, that's when it seems a substantial warm up is possible.

    I'll bet Root16 would go back in a New York Minute, but it would be hard to keep him from the woods!

    I'm heading up early tomorrow AM for the day. Prob will be there at or before 9. Gray stitched jacket and blue pants. Drop me a PM if you want to make some turns in the woods.

    Woods all skied fantastic today. Peak winter conditions. Even the lower mountain stuff like Bucks Woods and Expo Glades were great.

    HUGE contrast with Sugarbush's glades which were not very good yesterday.

    The glades at Smuggs were decent, but the underlying surface was pretty solid - so the bumps were pretty firm. Was it somewhat soft at Jay?

    Jay was perfect. Glades don't get better unless they have a fresh dump.
