Only the Jet Triple was open, but many trails were open, including Kitz, Jet, Haynes, Derrick's, Derrick's Hot Woods, Kitz Woods, Hell's Woods, Montrealer, Taxi, Bonnie Glades, Show-off Glades, etc. <BR> <BR>The place was pretty crowded too. Lines for the chair almost all day long. <BR> <BR>The conditions were very mashed potatoes, but, toward the end of the day, that got skied off on the trails and it was down to the concrete, man made stuff. <BR> <BR>The snow was melting in front of our eyes all day, and it was beginning to rain when I left at 5. It was fun while it lasted, but we'll need some more natural before glade skiing is possible again.
