Flew out and caught the last couple days of March expecting incredible conditions and ended up skiing in 60*+ weather and shorts. Although they had good coverage by 11am the slopes were slow and slushy. Near impossible to ski anything but blues with good pitch or blacks by the afternoon. Catwalk and California were torture by the end of the day. Skiing in shorts was fun but would stick to Colorado for late season skiing where they're still getting powder. Locals call it Sierra Concrete this time of year. Top to bottom didn't seem like a very difficult mnt. Last run was the Face, supposed to be 2x Black but didn't seem accurate. Most blues were way to easy.
