Right where I want to be
Today was #31 at Whaleback with my 4 yo son. Great AM up there. Awesome coverage and vibe.

Sent from my XT1254 using AlpineZone mobile app

I was there as well with my 13yo. The trails in the sun and groomed were the way to start. Then everything was good around 11. Then it started getting too soft. Most glades were okay except fo YOOYM which really shouldn't have been open. They were having a large bump comp for kids there. Parking was the most crowded part - up and down both sides of the excess road. Lift line ebbed and flowed from ski on to 5 min wait.

Day 28 for me. Nice morning/early afternoon at Pico but very busy unless you avoided the two quads. I have enjoyed the temps the past two days but I am not sure if I am ready to feel like winter is starting to wind down yet.
