After spending the day enjoying the old school charm of Wildcat yesterday I headed to Sunday River today to embrace the advantages of a mega resort. It was single digits when I arrived before opening but mostly clear skies and very little wind. In fact the only time I noticed the wind was at the top of Jordan. When I left it was in the low 20s so a comfortable day.

Snow conditions were mostly packed powder. Very easy to carve although things got a bit scrapped off and kind of uneven by the end of the day in areas of high use. I skied Shockwave in the morning while there was still enough snow on it to get a good grip.

I spent time in the Last Tango and Blind Ambition glades. Both skied very nicely and it was nice to get some tree skiing in. Overall a great day at SR. No crowds to speak of and great surface conditions with some ungroomed patches and some fresh snow still in the woods.

I was there am. Very nice. The "new" glade north woods was awesome. Needs another dump for the steep parts. "Quantum leap" was really a leap and not ice with lots of freshies
