Snowboarding- advanced. Although still February conditions very much (late) spring conditions.No lift lines- almost empty at times.Snow coverage still good -grooming/snowmaking crew must be doing a good ( actually great) job.However into the 50's ( I would estimate) and very sunny today - snowpack can only take so much of this.Northstar staff great.

Great conditions right now with soft snow across the area. Most everything is open, however the steeper trails do have dirt patches and rocks showing. The cruisers are very well covered though and even the glades are pretty nice. Snow showers at the top allude to the snow storm coming Thursday, which should fill in the dirt spots. Overall great day and there should be plenty more to come.

With temps pushing 60 not a banner day for conditions. By 130 many trails on spruce were slush and too slow, ones on far right and left should have been closed due to so much exposed terrain. Mansfield was good including Moguls but you had to ski the shade by noon. Kudos to Vail resorts for having most trails and lifts open, didn't see a blue off limits.

Been skiing mount snow for 35 years and this past weekend was by far the best visit yet. 86 of 88 trails were in pristine condition. My son and I spent most of our time disputing which run was the best. He claimed “Olympic” I argued “Plummet” We finally agreed they were all great! Kudos to the crew at Mount Snow.

Once again spring conditions today with nice soft snow and no crowds. The mogals were nice and soft today along with most of the glades with the exception of Black Hole. Some patches of dirt in some high traffic and non groomed runs but overall a great day. With over a foot of snow for Thursday, now is the time to get here!

Great conditions out there today with everything open. Soft snow towards the bottom with firmer stuff up top. Very little ice, even the glades were pretty good with soft snow and plenty of coverage. Crowds died down around noon and it was empty by two in the afternoon.

Great day with a lot of fresh snow most of the day. Winds really picked up in the afternoon and iced it up just a bit. They are expecting 90MPH winds at the summit tonight so tomorrow may be icy.

Smuggs never disappoints. We skied all day on Sunday Feb 9, 30+" new snow in past few days, very cold, no wind, no crowds! Both Madonna and Sterling peaks were in top shape. Friendly skiers ad boarders and great lifties. Tough to pick a favorite run: Upper FIS, Chilcoot, Rumrunner, Black Snake and Practice Slope.

Spent day at Killington. No new snow in about a week, but trail conditions were pretty good. By 2pm trails were pretty scraped off to the sides with ice and hard pack down the middle. A few trails were too thinly covered for my taste. Clouds made it very difficult to pick up slope contours near the top (not their fault). Bear Mt. lift wasn’t spinning which created lines. Summit Gondola broke down so that sucked for a little while.

Skied Monday the 27th. Sunny day. No lift lines, like usual. Seattle ridge stayed in great shape. Frenchmen runs were getting scraped back to almost icy conditions. Top of Mayday still had some relatively deep untracked areas but as you descend it becomes full of large moguls.

Windy day yesterday. Light snow all day. Lower runs were great. Nice snow sunny. Fairly long lines at bottom. Peak6 was open. No lines at Zende and Kensho lifts. Brutal winds at the top of Kensho lift. Limited visibility at top and a bit icy due to wind blowing top snow off. Great day.

Week leading into the Holiday had early snow and decent but colder conditions. Snow was helped with days below 30 until Friday. Small stashes still possible coverage for this time of year is good, but limited open terrain. Plenty of groomed areas and sunshine.

Went yesterday. Beautiful weather. Warm at base, windy and much cooler on top. Snow was really good in most spots. A bit icy in the shady areas along right side of runs. Crowded lifts because limited runs are open. Great start to season.
