  Plenty of new snow at Winter Park, yet surprisingly I had the whole trail system to myself. The gates are closed so one needs to park at the gate and ski in (the last stretch of road is not plowed and snow is quite deep, beware if driving a low clearance car). It rained or sleeted at times during the storm, so there is a tricky crusty ice layer under the fresh snow that my skis were breaking at times. In fact, it gets tricky going downhill. Used waxless skin skis with fluoro spray on the skins (which I highly recommend as it would otherwise be the perfect moisture and temperature to ice under the skis). Unfortunate that they decided to close for the season two weeks ago, but a chance for some nice backcountry skiing, which I rarely get a chance to enjoy (winters are too short and I can't do all the skiing I'd like). Nice late season treat.

  MWP is closed for the season but still skiable if you park at the gate and walk in. Most trails are still skiable if you don't mind stepping around rare bare spots and the occasional pine cones and icy patches. For me it was worth the trip.

  Fast Spring conditions, good coverage, icy spots here and there: trails groomed in last day or so were were probably good for A skis! End of season party Sunday.

  Skied Lake Marie was just groomed. Started just before 10 am, excellent conditions til about noon, when mushy snow formed in sun with typical fast in the shade and sudden slow in sunny areas descent. After 1 more sunups from twigs and such appeared. No open water, no real ice, just hard pack in shade. Overall excellent to good conditions. Skied on waxless due to variable conditions. Great job grooming and many thanks!

  Came here directly from Winman trails which were unskiable at 10 am due to icy base. The PB groomed trails had no ice and were clean of debris with nice glide until the snow softened in the sunny areas. Well worth the trip.
