Full review

Crystal's still rocking pretty good. The ridges and chute entrances file down the edges some, but the north faces are holding good. Getting a little monged out down low though. Still needs another foot or so to really trigger Silver King. I scouted out most of the hills on Sunday and pieced together the best run with a Procourse to Exterminator to Bull Run descent. Hoping the temps drop down into teens again to fluff things up some. If not, we'll unfortunately need a couple 000's skier to chop-up the surface hoar some. Feels like a early spring slope right now (melting in day, freezing at night). That said, put away the fats and bring out the groom carvers. If you want a thrill, catch the first runs down Lucky Shot and really hold onto that edge.
