In all seriousness though, the skiing was quite good. Spring day, busy with racers in the morning, but empty after 12 with areas of bumps here and there. Not great bumps, but the occasional 4-5 bump line. Upper Lynx is buried. Upper Polecat and Lower Lynx will need to see some more snowmaking after Monday. I even took a spin over on the Snowcat Slope and they've got a good beginner product for people.

One thing I REALLY appreciated is they had ski school training for both Wildcat and Attitash today. They kept all inside and just reviewed videos knowing that there was not enough terrain for on the snow training without disrupting paying customers. Good decision by management.

Wow to the picture of the empty trail. That certainly wasn't the scene at Killington!

I was also there also and once the MWV race team stopped digging trenches in the soft groomed snow and it got skied up it was great. went to the bell but it was with runs that got slower and slower with more breaks as the day was ending

I kept an eye Brad, but didn't see you. Hopefully we make some turns this season. I'm back in the granite pass fold, so I should be there often.

Today is not great. It's loose granular piles on top of an uneven frozen granular surface. One run and done.

I did not try to Snowcat chair, but I hear it is much better.

Well I bought my mug. I'll have to do the math, but I'll have to drink a lot of beer at the mountain to break even. Challenge accepted

Today is surprisingly good. Guns are running on all their open terrain. There is just enough fresh natural to make a big difference. Secondary surface is scary grey ice where it shows through.

They are making no effort at expansion due to the forecast. The game plan is to try to bury their existing terrain to protect against next week.
