Discovery Ski Area - Skied 3/10. Too icy for me to ski in the morning, slushy but skiable in the afternoon.  Definitely spring skiing-  50 degrees F, blue skies, skied in my tee shirt.  While the front side was slushy in the afternoon, the back side was still a bit icy.  Some bare spots present.

Despite spring conditions in December, a great day!  Still not everything open, and if you are going to the backside or want to ski Berkley more than once, bring your rock skis. Spent the day on Southern Cross, Red Lion as Gold Big with the kids, an those were great. Berkley is fun, but unless you know what you are looking for an can ski a pretty straight line without fish-tailing your backs, if wait for new snow before heading there or the backside.

Skied Goldbug and Red Lion all day with the kids, which was great for them. Snuck over to Berkeley without them. Not bad, but some rocks hidden under the loose snow. 10-12 more inches will help a lot!

Well folks a trip to Disco was brought to a halt Thursday. Closed. Here is a pic of the parking lot. Just a few more inches and all will be well and cars will fill this lot again. We put up the skis and pulled out the snow shoes. Discovery is still beautiful with whatever you put on your feet.
