Snow was in decent shape today but with only the Cabriolet open (aside from the beginner lift) the lift line was 15-20 minutes.

(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!

Conditions yesterday overall were decent, but it varied a lot all over the mountain. Some trails were just downright firm, others were firm with some packed snow on top, and others were quite good.

Skied for a week from 12-28-20 to 1-4-21. Crowed first two days because it dumped 13” first night, it thinned out rest of week. Strict COVID practices everywhere 25%, make sure you get reservations ahead of time for everything. Had a great time skiing was awesome for a slow start season.

Had a great day skiing powder at Nakiska on 23rd December - about 60cm of powder fell on the 22nd. Unfortunately this app shows no snow at all for that week. The app isn't much use if it misses key data like that.

I skied today and the snow was really great. The runs that they do have opened are covered really well, I was really impressed. Do be prepared to warm up in your car. At least at Spruce Lodge, they were only letting people in to use the bathroom and then leave quickly, on a one-way route. I think they are taking reservations for the Pub upstairs, but I bet they are very hard to get. I recommend coming on a weekday if at all possible, it was great!

Snow was good but all lift lines were brutal. 20 minutes per lift until 330p on 1/6. Great Western will open tomorrow and should help.

Outstanding day at Sunapee today. Delightful packed powdah conditions and not a square inch of ice in sight. No crowds, Blastoff and Chipmunk were heavenly and the staff is cognizant and enforced health protocols. The cloud banks below the halfway point in the mountain provided for jaw dropping scenery.

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.

Was there on the 28th. It was the worst I’ve ever seen it AND you have to wait 2 hours at the base just to get on the mountain because they are not filling the chairs or gondola. I watched gondola after gondola go up with one skier in it. Spare me the covid spread stuff.

Conditions where icy with narrow and balding runs. The rain yesterday must have killed any early session fun.

Amazing conditions but b
36 inches of new snow in the past 18 hours! Unfortunately the resort was not ready for it and they only managed to open 2 lifts. This weekend's conditions should be better as they get time to dig out lifts and groom and check With COVID, the lodges are eat and get out, so be prepared not to rest indoors. Hopefully the cooks will make it in tomorrow, today it was pre-made sandwiches only.

Great snow today on opening day. It hasn't had a chance to melt and refreeze yet, so there was no ice to be found.

Definitely has some bald patches but the snow that is there isn’t terrible. No shuttle running and Sojern is closed so if you want to get to the south peak you have to drive over there.

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.

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.

Just back from annual trip to anywhere other than Ontario(this years choice was Quebec-Ste Anne/Le Massif). Good conditions for 4 days. Im a intermediate snowboarder and enjoyed the variety of more runs of Ste. Anne over the more challenging Le Massif. Figures the day we left we get 40cm of fresh powder :(

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.

Spent the week at Gore. Three days of skiing and lots of heat runs. Most trails or well groomed and plenty to spend time on. Had a great time. No crowds and plenty to do.
