    Looking at the webcam, they groomed like crazy and probably will again tonight. Looks to me like headwall should easily hold up through tomorrow. Sunday might be questionable depending on what weather hits.
    I'm shooting for 1st chair tomorrow. Someone is hooking me up with a pass and they may not arrive until 8.

    I'm guessing even with the shitty weather/threat of rain lunch time it will be packed tomorrow.
    Hopefully I'll be tired by then after some good AM laps.

    The biggest problem spot will be the top lip. Looked pretty solid this morning but it's already worn through. Still manageable today but that's with a light crowd, cool temps and only filtered sunlight. The picture doesn't really do it justice. Skiers left is definitely better than skiers right.IMG_20190531_125154.jpg

    Is there any depth left to the former stockpile at the top? Last Monday you still had to climb a couple feet before heading downhill. Not sure if they flattened the rest of that out this morning or not but that would be the difference between having something to slide on by Sunday or having to climb down.

    Great day at K! Top, and middle thin spot, held up pretty good. Top was pretty bony by noon. I skied from opening til one, 15 runs, pretty happy with that, I think that's probably it for me. Nice to finally get some decent weather to ski in my last couple trips. It's been a weird Spring.IMG_20190531_124618402.jpgIMG_20190531_124614667.jpgIMG_20190531_095843668.jpgIMG_20190531_102118957_02.jpgIMG_20190531_095351703.jpg

    There's a tiny bit left to push down, but seems to be more around that can be pushed up. I'd think tomorrow will be good. Sunday, maybe an afterthought, especially if it rains. Here now, and it's held up good. Top is shot but skiable on the left with rock skis or rock dodging. Screenshot_20190531-155313.jpg

    Yeah, there is basically no hill left to climb. They did a good job with the on and off ramps from the lift, those will hold up well. But at the top, making the off ramp cost them material they could have kept for the lip. There is snow to pull up, question will be if it will firm up enough to allow for the winch cats to move it without too much difficulty. There is also a rapidly thinning spot at the bottom of the top pitch where Launch Pad cuts across (due to the berm from the actual road there), though they can pull snow up from lower to cover that.

    Wish Sunday wasn't my b-day, I really didn't want to let it rot for 2 days before I got to ski it but I want that day lol. But as far as east goes it will be one of a very few chances to ski that day.

    Ha, so glad I blew off work to hit it yesterday. The headwall will probably be gone before the last of the line gets to the top.
