Several runs open from the top of Silver and a few from the top of Gold are open plus the gladed area. The Nakiska claim of 40 trails open is a joke. 8 groomed trails perhaps, plus the glades. Groomed trails are in decent condition with icy sections forming later in the day. The gladed areas are reasonably soft. There are some marginal sections though!
it was my first time ever at nakiska today. Beautiful mountain. Seriously lacking snow. A friend and I were one of the first people up the silver chair today and the grooming on homesteader was great. After lunch the grooming was worn and it became SUPER slick. definitely shouldnt be charging full price right now considering only 3 blue runs and a couple greens are open.

Groomed hard pack. Once the grooming has been scraped away, it is slippery. Some good runs are open, but lacking snow. They are making snow furiously, so if the temperature stays low, conditions should be okay for Boxing day.
