was there yesterday and today and conditions were very good. plenty of fresh powder on most trails. some steep trails have some bare spot on the sides but overall still excellent. a lot of trails are bumped out with piles of powder. great snow just need some groomer love. worth every penny.
Most resorts open an hour later during the week days.(not including holidays) This allows their employees more time to get the mountain ready as there are less people working. Smaller crowds = less staff. Check their web site next time if you are confused
