Conditions this past few weeks were what I have experienced consistently over the last three years, icy.
I love the place for the great lifts, some challenging vertical, terrain park and the convenience of two differnt lodges but its murder on even the best skier or border when the ice is this bad. I realize it hasn't been cold enough during the days but do you make snow at night or are those guns just props?

Also, I understand that skiing is a dangerous sport but thats no excuse for management to let high school and college kids do whatever they want on the mountain. It can be very dangerous to ski there with the lack of any oversight from the ski patrol. I would rather drive further to another mountain knowing I have a better chance of getting home in one piece that night.
