Opening day -- this past Friday -- at Cranmore had just one run open (two linked trails) but snow quality was great, sun was out and staff was fantastic. Cranmore 'went small' for opening but delivered the goods on the runs that were open.
Saturday at Sunday River was the worst day of skiing I've ever encountered. Every Blue run was a mogul field w/ exposed rocks -- not groomed as promised. Broadway was only groomer but packed -- including w/ ski racers training ... racing on a beginner run. Awful conditions.
