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:


Heading out:

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.

From East Peak:

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


... and Whiskey Jack:

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

Late afternoon: returning to the pleasant Winwood Inn:

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.
