Small, poor snow quality

I think Blue Hills as a lot of potential as a place to get in a few runs when you don't have enough time to go to a real mountain, or as a place to take a new skier to help them learn before they spend money and time on a real mountain. I was there last Sunday (12/31/2021) for night skiing. Lines were short and everything seemed to run smoothly. The one lift feels like a real antique but there's nothing too wrong with it. My biggest complaint is that the snow quality on some of the hills was pretty bad. The one black diamond (more like a blue) called Big Blue Headwall had snow that was 100% chunky crud. It was like maybe fist sized pieces of ice distributed around the hill. They need either better snow making or better grooming. Interestingly, the other hill had snow that I would consider passable and I had some enjoyable (if short) runs on it. If the snow quality was better I might think more seriously about skiing here more in the future if I didn't have a whole day to spend skiing.
