Conditions on Thursday and Friday have not been that great. Paradise had huge sections of ice on both days. On Friday, the packed powder only lasted about an hour and then turned into sugar and skied off icy patches. Blue still needs to get their snowmaking and grooming perfected. Occasionally you will have a day were everything is well groomed cordoroy, but usually, only a few trails have great conditions, and the rest have golf ball snow, ruts, hard pack, or a coat of sticky blown snow that was left on the trails to help cover up the ice below.
