One trail section was all natural snow skiing (soft mid-winter-like packed powder)and the others a combination of natural and machine-made with good cover, some bumps, mostly soft snow (somewhat damp near the snowguns which blew most of the day). Several inches of natural snow was still on the ground and clinging to the evergreens. Access was via a pick-up truck ride to to/from the base of the Canyon Chair which was used to upload/download to/from the Glades triple.
