niceeee last day Saturday December 23rd.! could not have asked for a better was to end the epic season. got free doughnuts while waiting in line at bottom of gondola. then was up and just about all Nevada side was open with over a foot of fresh light snow! AMAZING! hiked a lot and had tons of fun!! nextyear!
Anywhere that people have been in the last few days is now dust on crust, with the exception of the groomed runs and the Palisades Bowl, both of which are heavenly. Worth the trip - we had the whole mountain to ourselves.
4/12: snow great in the afternoon, no crowds at all. Ridge run in CA was best, rode like buttercream frosting. Many chairs not running due to tapering operations for spring. Snow was very soft and not sticky on runs, firmer in trees but not really icy. Lots of fun.
