Had a nice day at the 'wood 12/28. Getting tickets for pickup wasn't too complicated, and grabbing a few hot cocoas for the kids was contactless and socially distanced. In the Covid era Apres is a little different but we were there to slide down the hills. Snow was packed powder with a light dusting on top and made for nice riding. Terrain was a bit limited as the top still had quite a bit of uncovered rock, the backside was closed and no terrain parks were open yet. All in all it was a nice day. My kids mostly hung out on the Solitude lift and had fun.

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.

Skied Monday. Very cold (15F) but blue sky and windy. Not enough wind to close anything. First time at this resort, lots of cat tracks to get around. Lots of icy spots. They were running the snow making machines on many runs which was very unpleasant. Its loud and pelts you with tiny ice balls that freeze to your goggles. Northstar was much better for groomed runs.
