Is Northstar losing their edge? Slow to get set up and open terrain. Not much grooming. New management?

All of the powder was skied out. A slight breeze was enough to prevent Siberia, granite and emigrant from functioning. KT and headwall ok.

Perfect Saturday, significantly lessened by Heavenly's mismanagement. Key lifts not working at full charge with eternal lines. Not sure I'll come again.

14 hours ago - Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Powder 15"

The snow dump was enormous and powder could be found in the trees on the backside and Lookout Mountain all Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. by Saturday afternoon the powder was skied out but most of the ungroomed trails were soft friendly moguls. bloodlines we're generous but not unbearable for a three-day weekend. I would be careful eating at the Zephyr restaurant as the electricity was out for more than 12 hours and one of my friends and I both got food poisoning. apparently they do not have backup generators for refrigeration on the mountain.
