Still great coverage and lots of snow still on all the main slopes. Every slope seemed groomed and not very many tracks when we got there early on Mar.18th. Not many people so we could have most runs by ourselves. Gunstock doesn't have much elevation so the snow gets soft so go as early and get as much skiing as you can before noon. Today the temp. started below freezing but warmed up fast with showers by mid afternoon. Lots to do around the area when skiing gets too soft. Lots of resturants and outlet shopping. The lake is still frozen and that is fun to cross country ski or walk to some of the Islands seen from shore. They say they will stay open until April, 5th but by then it is usually too warm in this area and the snow gets wet by then. Today it was soft but never melted.
