Another nice morning out there today. 32* with summits obscured by clouds. Skied 10-11:30 this morning. Weird conditions on the top half of Skye Peak this morning. Grooming occured last night when temps were above freezing. Then this morning things dropped below freezing seizing up the snow. Skier traffic then broke that up leaving ball bearings. After a couple more runs, skier traffic broke up the ball bearings and turned things to a more consistent granular. This was from the top of superstar to say just above High Road. Below that never set up and was cream cheese soft making Lower Superstar the ROTD
I skied Superstar a few times and a couple Skyelark>bittersweets and Bittersweet top to bottom. Upper Bittersweet still had big snowmaking whales from recent work done there and Lower Skyelark was closed for alpine training so that left Lower Superstar and Lower Bitter as the ways down off the Superstar chair.
All in all it was a pretty decent morning and the snow was soft on the bottom half and required more work to grab an edge on the upper half.
