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.

Boarding, advanced. Full on spring conditions.Into 50s today. At 2pm still some nonslush ,soft snow high up on Backside but slush most everywhere else by then.Better snow coverage than one might think but with temps thus warm that will change if no new snow soon. No crowds.

Skied on Sunday, after a 40 deg day on Saturday. Thought it would be icy but the groomed runs were excellent. Temps dropped during the day from 34 down to 25F. Started snowing at 10am. Several black diamond runs groomed too! (Much less windy than Heavenly)
