Not too bad but it became slushy on the bottom half of the mountain midday. Fortunately, snow should be coming this week and conditions should improve.

You can definitely tell this was a low snow year. Today was particularly bad because of the 50 degree weather. It was impossible to transition from one part of the mountain to another because of how slow and slushy the snow was

Plenty of new snow all over the resort. Over the knees powder in the glades and bumps. If you can ski all of the terrain, you will not be disappointed. Some of the groomers wind blown or scratchy from skier traffic. Didn't stand in a line all day today.

Little snow overnight softened what was already pretty soft. Definitely more than an inch up top... Got a little crowded later and some "ice", but easily avoidable. Look out for rocks. Coverage is not nearly as good as the conditions. One guy tore the edge off his Soul 7's :(

I was at Canyons on Sat 2/10 and Sun 2/11 and had a great time! Seems like the quality is super dependent on when the last snow was. Saturday was great because it snowed about 3" during the day. Runs were fully covered, not much ice, not many rocks. Runs in the woods were especially good. On Sunday, things started to go downhill, especially on more popular runs and on specific areas like Iron Mountain. Lots of exposed ice and rocks. I'm assuming that since they got some snow on Sunday night, things will be good again today. In the end, they're doing a good job with what they have and it's still worth a trip out. The sheer volume of runs means you'll likely find coverage somewhere!

Fairly busy, not terrible for a Sunday. Lift line on Beaver Run was a short wait, Peak 8 Super Connect was a little longer but still now terrible. When we got to the base of 8, the lines were so long at both lifts we just got on the Gondola, no wait, and headed to town for any early dinner.

hey guys! I drove up there today. It was raining. It rained last night. I could see the golf course it's so dry. I'm a spoiled rider. We need at least 3 more storms for it to be worth anything. it's not worth the drive..or money. I have a pass still waiting to use.

38 degrees at 7:30 A.M. this morning. the snow is wet and heavy and the skiing was good for the first hour at the top. as temps have warmed rain off and on at the base and heavy wet broken snow persists. Grooming was late and not very pressive. Even groomed runs are wet and sticky. We need colder weather
