Anything off of the groomers is heavy and pretty tracked out. If you want to get in the trees bring your big skis. Groomers are soft with some thin spots. No crowds.
I'm visiting from S. Lake Tahoe. I'll take Schweitzer over any Tahoe resort right now! Trust me, Heavenly had 3% acres open

how is Schweitzer this days?
Any better than the resorts near the Coast?
I was up there yesterday 1/19. The first half of the morning was beautiful but the second half, the visibility was bad. Snow condition wise, it rained a little bit the night before so you get this crusty layer on top of 4" of powder. Makes it extremely difficult to turn off the groomers. Stay on the groomers till it soften up!

Snow is extremely crusty at the top and untied able off of groomers. Snow softened up towards the bottom although wind stopped the great escape from operating.
