Full review

I skied Spirit again on Saturday and was once again happy about how well the snow is holding up. It was a little chilly, but since the wind wasn't bad, it was very tolerable (the wind is what makes the weather at Spirit so horrible at times). The snow is still holding up well. It gets a little icy after the sun dips down around 4pm, but from noon to 3:30 or so is the best time to be on the snow.

The quad chair next to Four Pipe seems to be running without incident (at least Saturday it was). Spirit's doing a great job managing their lift lines and making sure that they fill up every chair so people don't have to wait forever. So kudos to them for that. Also, they were running every single chair on Saturday to help keep the lines down.

Skied for about 5 hours, and had a few beers at the Moosehead afterword. Overall a good day on the snow, and no real surprises (like broken lifts!)
