    In a fit of stupidity, I'm heading there today. 6" and they're not talking wind holds yet. I won't get there until 10:45, sadly.

    Ok, no rain yet. They're claiming 8" and it seems legit! It's as dense as can be. It was all broken up by the time we arrived. Skiers right of the mountain has a crustier surface. In general the snow mounds aren't moving. You've gotta bounce off them. 3 long runs and I'm taking a break. So glad we came.

    By 2016 standards today was an A- for Wildcat. Snowmaking trails had a perfect packed powder surface. Natural trails were a bit interesting. Gondiline was still mainly Coral Reef, Middle Catapult was well skied but still crunchy. Upper Wildcat skied the best, but there are tons of open ice flows and exposed rock. I enjoy the obstacle dodging, others may not. Didn't venture into woods as base is still low and there was quite the crust below 3000 feet caused by a bit of rain.

    Couple pictures of Gondiline, Upper Wildcat (above ice flows) and George.

    That crust was also present at Cannon's lower elevations today. I poached a line that got me into that stuff...very very bad move. If something is closed right now trust that it's for a reason.

    That's a downside to Wildcat's lift layout. There's no way to stay up top.

    It would be ni e to have an Upper Mountain lift. My understanding is that because there used to be one, they could put one in again without much of a fight from the USFS. Doubt it ever happens.

    Even on days like today where it would be a benefit, I'm not sure I'd want one. The Quad is too much capacity for upper mountain trails as is. The other factors is the vast majority of trees are below 3k feet anyways.

    Would be awesome for early season starts!
