Wondering if anyone skied Wildcat this past weekend? If so, how were conditions & how many trails open?

Lynx very well may be bulletproof when they reopen. That trail has serious mood swings. Even with the new snowmaking system on Lynx last year, there were days where you would rather than skiing you were just looking for a spot -- any spot -- to make a turn and trying to hold on for the ride. If they don't resurface this week we could be in for some hurt for the holiday weekend. But when Lynx is sweet, it is oh so sweet. I'm hoping that snow on Wednesday saves the day!
Wildcat was a train wreck on Saturday. A billionty people (mostly families) totally destoyed Lynx by 11am. Temperatures were in the single digits so boilerplate was the dish of the day. This is the blowback of Attitash not being open. On Friday Polecat was reported to be sweet, but they ruined it with ungroomed snowmaking on Saturday which just forced everyone to Lynx.
Sunday (today) was much better. Crowds were non-existant as everyone was scared off from Sunday. Fortunately the snow was soft, Polecat was groomed, and the groomers repaired Lynx
There are still some really thin spots on Middle Polecat and the S-turns of Lynx could use some more snow. Upper Catapult is pretty well burried under whales, and Cat Track is about half way covered. Interestingly there were guns out on lower sections of Top Cat and Lift Lion. I think there going to try to blow a couple interconnects between Upper Lynx and Upper Catapult.
