    We don't have any direct plans to give Killi a run for it's money on the late season game, but we should have a better Spring base all over the mountain with this new system.

    Any plans to blow snow (at night) or expand this week with highs hitting the low 40's this week?

    Saturday was a blast! It was like Mid-April spring riding conditions.

    Just got home from skiing 9:00 - 1:00 just about non stop. First day out... 17 runs... legs didn't start burning until the last run.

    The guns were running all day, which I'm not a huge fan of skiing under but considering there is a really good reason to leave the guns on today I won't complain.

    Surfaces were consistently edgeable and in some places they were pretty great especially once some folks pushed the snow around a bit. Only real exception was either Sundance or lower Canyon (not sure which it was) which was an ice rink. Smooth yellowish water ice, not talking glorified hard-pack. It was laughably bad, and I didn't see it coming so it basically meant straight lining the trail on ice because I came upon the ice rink with too much speed to try and cut.

    But every other run was good. Freefall was fast and firm but probably my favorite. Ridge was good conditions (and under the guns). Long John and Little John were in mid-season condition.

    In case I sound unimpressed -- I was. Massive snowmaking efforts, and the mountain skied very well today with trails in good condition in green, blue and black. Great day to start the season. Mount Snow delivered and certainly not below expectations.

    This part makes no sense to me - unimpressed then the explanation sounded as you were.

    I read it as "In case I didn't sound impressed - I was (impressed)."

    I am pretty sure he meant to say "I wasn't". But as it is written, it doesn't sound right.
