Great day with great conditions. Snow is a little and packed but some of the harder runs are a lot softer.

Blue Catwalk near Dawson had plenty of untouched; just opened today. Great snow on midway if looking for easy groomers too. Snow moving in Sunday to Christmas as well with steady cold temperatures here to stay.

Very bad.  Rocks and dirt all over main runs. To be honest, it seemed like it shouldn't have been open.  Hopefully they get a bunch more snow before the 'official' opening.

What snow is left is quite icy, and hard.  It's bad for anything other than speed.  When the snow softened later in the day it was more tolerable, but not good.  Many rocks, and trees were exposed under the snow, giving me a new scratch on the board.  On the upside, the bluebird days are great, and can be done in a light jacket.  We need snow!

Last Friday was decent.  Nearly everything was groomed, but the Segundo lift wasn't being operated for some reason.  East Ridge had some good untouched powder, but there were quite a few rocks sticking out.  Not bad, but temperatures were great!

Sunday-  Lots of really good snow this weekend, however the East Ridge was closed.  It was really cold, but the snow made up for it.  Nearly the entire mountain was powder, which was awesome.

Lots of fresh powder after being closed for a while.  Most of the snow was great, but by the end of the day it got a bit tracked out.  There was very little sun, some wind, and very cold temperatures.  Still a fun day.

Lots of groomed runs.  They opened the East Ridge with lots of untouched powder.  The powder was a bit wet, but definitely good.  A few exposed rocks on East Ridge and Primo.  Avoidable though.  Pretty great day!

I hiked up last weekend, to the top of the mountain.  While the very summit was wind-blown, and rocky, the rest of the upper-portion of the mountain was nice, and powdery.  There were some small ravines that need to be watched for, as well as some dirt roads crossing the path.  The rocks are there, but with caution, can be avoided easily.  Towards the very bottom of the mountain the amount of ravines, and roads increased.  It became a bit more technical, but again, still do-able.  At the very bottom of the mountain, the snow is all machine-made and has turned to ice.  This was where I fell, as it was basically a sheet of ice.  Overall, the mountain still needs time before opening, but if you want to try it now, you can (down Little Max to Sun King).  I even did it just after sunset with just my phone light, and the bright moon.   I'd recommend checking it out if you are up for the hike.  Also, Sunlight plans to open on December 6th, but will likely open early due to abundant snowfall that this current storm is producing.
