I just started riding a skibike. I had the best snow conditions and experience riding through the trees on Thu., 2/20, of my entire winter season. Had snowed about 6" the night before and started snowing with high cloud cover during the afternoon. No lines at the back chair. Open, untracked powder all over. Lots of runs. It was fantastic. And only for $15. It was definitely worth the drive up from the Bay Area. Great little ski area.
