It was VERY WINDY today (gusts 60-70 mph), which caused the mountain to shut most of the lifts down. The snow is very bad by any of the lodges and anything below about mid mountain (slush and ice), but the snow is better higher than mid mountain (packed powder & spring snow).
Most of the mountain was icy until 10:30(daylight savings time affected that), from about 11 to 1:30 it melted over the ice to give it a soft fluffy ride that I considered good enough to hit 50+ mph on my bombing runs. After 1:30 it was so so depending on the runs. Slushy then.

Soggy by 1230 anywhere with of mid. Got some good groomer speed runs early.
Soft pushable snow on top, "fresh corn/untracked 3" soft glop" (which is fun) in mid altitudes, spring slush at bottom. Almost no obstacles, warm, no wind, fun snow. Doesn't get much better than this (other than deep pow I guess.). Fun times!!
