The last couple of days have been absolutely spectacular. Today I wondered how far we were trending towards spring skiing. Actually it was a great excuse to go skiing. I covered a fair bit of ground skiing the North Side, Lenawee Parks, the Lower Mountain, and Montezuma Bowl. I was on the backside from about noon until 1 PM. Columbine was still winter snow top to bottom. Black Bear was still winter snow. Larkspur was still winter snow except the very bottom, what we call "Larkspur Fingers." I found a little bit of soft spring snow on Lower Slalom Slope. The last couple of days we had a cool wind blowing and most of the mountain still has winter snow.
So we have great winter conditions and OpenSnow.com is predicting 6-13" of snow for A-Basin over the weekend. Our tremendous skiing is only going to get better.
We will have to have an East Wall discussion some time next week.
