Skied SN yesterday under clear conditions with no wind. The ski area's web page reports over 50 inches of new snow from the last storm. Skiing was great with packed powder and tracked up powder but the winds did a number on the upper mountain steeps exposing the vast amount of rock ledges causing patrol to close access to upper FIS from the lift (opening at the catwalk ) Robin's Run etc. Upper liftline was open but with large areas of exposed rock . Once around the rocks , the rest of the area had packed powder conditions with soft turns. Mid mountain terrain away from the wind had good coverage . Amazing how fast the snow gets tracked out even after receiving over 4 feet.
