Great skiing in Alta today if you were hitting the mountain early. +10 inches yesterday, but the northern facing bowls were still great today.

Dark Rider to Elan last week. Loved it all! Brought GS skis from Midwest and carved up peak 10 front side, but also everything under E chair and 6 chair. Fresh tracks up on Whale’s tail. Loved it!

Absolutely fantastic two days, with one more to go. Beautifully groomed and ideal conditions. Lift lines can be annoying because of the COVID precautions, but overall great.

PATHETIC. Breck is supposed to be a world class resort. $200/day and the only shelter is like a mountain top gulag. No ability to social distance. 75% of the restaurant is blocked off and they have people crammed into a small room that smells like sewage. People sitting on crates.

Great conditions on 2/23 and 2/24. Stay away from the Ballhooter lift. Long lift lines even on a Monday and Tuesday. Best skiing is Western Territory, Widowmaker, Sawmill and Camp 99.

To the “Karen” who was so upset by the legal enjoyment of marijuana ... Vermont did do something; They legalized it! (s75 2020.... google it). Perhaps you should stay home. Oh and the snow was beautiful today. Always a great day at mt snow. Glades were great! Get out there and be kind everyone ✌

Mount Snow5 months ago
Magnificent day. A bit chilly. Great snow Although.... The summit smelled like pot all day. And much of the north face. Really irritating that you degenerates have no respect for others. Just stay in mommy’s basement. 1 or 2 ungroomed trails had some hard spots but lots of snow all over the mountain .Lots of bumps. All the glades open. Quite nice in the trees. Really crowded but having 2 summit lifts really makes mt snow stand out. Love this mountain. Vermont really needs to do something about the rampant drug use at the ski resorts. It is not unique to Mt Snow.

Terrible today. Lots of stuff roped off. Only groomers and mogul runs open which were all washed off by mid-day. I broke a 7 day old snowboard on the rocks sticking up between moguls. Base depth is a true 6-10” of hardpack or ~12” of wet powder if you can find any that’s not roped off.

Great conditions and few crowds. Not a lick of ice anywhere on the mountain. Glades are rather scratchy but definitely skiable. Gotta love The Beast during midweek...what a joy.

Good snow overnight, was skied out pretty quickly Saturday by large crowds and long lift lines. All in all a real good day on the slopes. PC still needs a lot of snow for the season to be great.

Got a few inches of fresh pow today. Visibility got worse in the late afternoon and the trails started getting lumpy. Tomorrow will snow again so this weekend should be overall pretty good.

(1/17-18) Had 3-4” of powder! Best conditions I have seen here in a while! Lift ticket restrictions kept the lines short. Waited max of 10 minutes at Ballhooter around noon-otherwise, skied right into the line at Powder Monkey and Grabhammer!

Hour long wait at quicksilver just to get to thin lousy conditions. I guess reservations to limit crowds isn’t important on holiday weekends.

Snowboarded Dec 28-30 - like other review said Christmas rain really hurt the mountain but overall still good groomed runs. And short/ no lift lines if u skipped the gondola. Now need to hope for some snow storms to fill in the rest of the mountain and the woods.

First time at Deer Valley and we really love the resort. But the skiing was terrible. They need snow and a lot of it. Very icy in the morning, then slushy mid day then icy in late afternoon. Snow!!!!!

Virtually nothing is opened and it seems Vail opened up the reservations despite not having opened any new lifts. Accordingly lift lines are super long and provide little access to actual skiing. It looks like there's maybe a few inches in the forecast but it almost certainly won't be enough to offset the post-chrismas crowds. We still had fun this last week, not having done much outdoor activities as a family because of covid, but we're returning home early. It's just too dry, too crowded. See you next year

BC continues to open more. Larkspur and Rose bowl just opened. Amazing skiing & plenty of snow. Groomers towards the top are in great shape. BC staff doing a good job of managing through the pandemic.
