Less than a week later, with winds beating the heck out of Spirit for a few days, the fresh 5" Spirit got last week is still there...although just groomed out now.
The runs are in great shape. Harder than soft, packed powder (as the resort is reporting on their snow report), but there is no doubt that the turns are nice and soft still. The wind and bitter cold didn't have it's way with turning that fresh snow into boilerplate ice. So get out there and enjoy it!
Everything has finally come in line for Spirit. It appears their lift issues have been resolved, they are managing their lift lines well, and they've got plenty of snow. Kudos to Spirit for making the best out of this season!
Get there early and enjoy the fresh, soft corduroy!
