Really bad conditions. Had skied the whole mountain in an hour and a half, maybe? Really unfortunate with the cost of lift tickets. Went to northstar one day, while not great it was still better than heavenly.
Went 1/17/15. Was a lot of fun, but the snow was definitely slushy in spots. Not too much ice. Better than I expected based on how long is been since fresh snow. Side note: they have yellow curry shrimp at their cafeteria that are quite excellent, better than your typical mnt food.
The conditions were not good on the California side and even worse on the Nevada side with maybe 15% of the mountain open. A couple things that saved the day, the Groove Park was fun and well conditioned, and the staff was pretty darn solid today.
iv lived gere since 1996, this is the worst iv seen since then, the combo of precip not pushing into the basin during the Dec storms and the temps running 10-15 degrees above normal since Nov... were very lucky to have any skiing at all, good job groomers/snowmakers!
Since the turn of the year there has been no new snow and temperatures have been warn so the mountain is looking green. Having said that the skiing conditions arent bad however the whole resort needs snow desperately!!!
