This is the 5th year I have been here each February and sadly this is the worst! While the base is good, temps are up in the low 40s. the snow is melting and then refreezing overnight. So you guessed it, it is hard packed and icy until later in the morning. Off trail is covered with moguls so if your coming up, sharpen your edges your going to need it.
@Victoria don't worry about a thing.
I'm sorry if my report from this weekend made you lose even an ounce of enthusiasm about your trip. The truth is I meant it being warmer as a good thing. We've been getting pounded by storms and cold all season and you'll get to enjoy the benefit of that in more mild conditions.
Trust me, you don't want it to storm THIS weekend. We'd be stuck in traffic coming down till summer if it did
Conditions are decent and held up better than I thought they would considering the warm temps. The trees and shaded runs are the best. The slopes facing the sun are spring conditions. There is no pow. If you like moguls, get here now. Conditiions degrade more each day tho.
