Inaccurate Snow Report

Full review

I went to try Mad River Glen for the first time today because I love steeps and tree skiing and their snow report saying "With 20-25" of snow over the last couple of days and 3' in the past week. It is a Packed Powder Paradise out there folks". I guess that might be true for the groomers and more gentle terrain, but not the steep terrain. Unfortunately, the tree skiing is very limited and there are not many trails. This resulted in the snow on all of the steep and challenging terrain being skied off, exposing many rocks, stumps, and ice. I wound up blowing out an edge. Had the ski report been accurate, I would have brought my rock skis.
