My wife, son, and I drove up Weds morning at the tail end of an eight-inch event, skied that afternoon and all of Thursday. The skies cleared overnight and it was bluebird from our hotel window Thursday morning:

While the single-digit overnight temps firmed things up on steeper pitches, conditions were good on most of the mountain, especially after last weekend's rain/fog/flash-freeze, which wiped out most of the snow in the woods. They'd blown monstrous snowmaking whales all over the mountain since Sunday to rebuild the base.

We lapped our favorite trails that twist and turn through the forest: World Cup (formerly known as "Wedgie")

My son liked Wanderer and on the other end of the ski area, Wonderama :

That evening at Rock'n Mexicana Cantina -- always great not to have to leave your hotel for happy hour and dinner:

Based upon Anthony's report from Jay, I assume anything ugrooomed is still masochistic after that rain/freeze a week ago.
