I like Snow Summit. They blow snow whenever possible to build up a nice base. It is only the second week of winter and they are 90 % open. People who complain about the conditions are clueless. Have you ever heard about the weather channel? Hmmm. I do my home work and only go when it is going to snow. It's pretty easy folks! If you go when there is no fresh snow, then it's your fault and you have no reason to complain. With all of the data at your finger tips on TV and the internet, not catching good conditions is silly. Oh yeah, I do work full time and live in Carlsbad. If you want better conditions, move to Utah!
