    Yeah but TBH if you mostly stuck to North Face it was an epic powder day. Fresh lines on newly opened tree skiing and the softest moguls ever. Winds were pretty bad I didn't expect Bluebird to run at all. I did expect Summit Express to run but after taking a couple runs down Ridge/Lodge(or anything up front) I could see why.

    Providing the solution of a lift up to access North Face, and use North Face lifts to the summit was a pretty good backup plan considering how screwed we could have been.

    The woods to the left of Olympic were sick today, should be even better tomorrow. Me + wife were in the first group of people heading down Olympic after that rope dropped.

    Some people were saying Plummet was great -- I did it once and thought it was the worst run. Not a fan of whales. Ducked into the woods halfway thru.



    A few people also obviously straight-lined Ripcord, which if you stick to the sides tomorrow might be a decent idea. Won't be open though.

    Challenger and Uncles were getting bumped up with some quality mogul formation, Uncles was fun if you like mogul-jumps

    What an amazing day. 19" and crazy winds so Mount Snow gets a pass in my book for lift op difficulties (other than not having the lift corrals set up). The atmosphere today was dripping. Ear-to-ear smiles all day. There was a period for an hour or so when Challenger had a 10-15 minute wait. People passed the time by starting a "Vail sucks" chant and heckling anyone who had a mis-load.

    My favorites were Olympic and Jaws (3x laps on both), with honorable ROTD's being Challenger and Uncle's. I dabbled in the trees next to Freefall and Uncles but not Oylimpic woods. Fun, just ski with care. At the end of the day I skied skiers right of Snowdance...very fun with the waterbar kickers. It's just crazy how good the naturals were today. Snow was dense enough that it stayed put and didn't get too scraped off. December 2? You'd never of guessed! There was a legitimate 2ft when I left. No way they report less than that tomorrow.

    Everything (save for Ripcord) is skiable regardless of the rope. Interestingly enough even the exposed water streams are well-covered, surprisingly.

    Hell I did Ledges and Jaws- the rockiest trails on the hill (save for Ripcord) and didn't hit anything. In fact I went right over the "Ledge" on Ledge, no scrape.

    These reports are really making me regret not playing workhookey. Sounds like a killer day out there!

    Pumped as hell for tomorrow. Hope its dumping there right now to refill the trails but even if it doesn't it will still be epic.

    Between the refills all day today + anything falling after close + the wind you're going to be skiing fresh I'm sure.

    The trail under Bluebird whatever it's called might be windblown but everything else cream and butter

    Bring your patience. Partly cloudy and 30 degrees tomorrow. It's going to be great but I'll bet my left thumb it'll be quite crowded.

    I can't ski again til Friday. Thinking Jiminy Peak of Berkshire East if they're open. Looking at the radar they will both probably end up doing as well as or better than Mount Snow.

    I'm waiting for B-East to report which trails they opened. I'm not seeing much yet, but they might want to groom thing over and push some snow around, get hoses out of the way, etc. If it looks like PackedPowder with some diamonds I'll be there Friday.

    Jiminy looks good too, that's plan B but not as cheap and more people to deal with. I guess Magic will have to wait.

    Awesome reports folks, much appreciated! I'm interested to hear how it is today and how many additional ropes drop.

    They reported 23 inches this morning, has me wondering how much more snow they need to get the bulk of the ropes dropped. Is the issue coverage at this point, or lack of staff to run lifts and patrol all the terrain? I feel like Dr. Jeff would know that answer...
