  Skied around lunch time, after about 1-2" of fresh snow. My timing was a bit off as the grooming crew had two PistenBully machines out grooming post-snowfall (I hate ski on new cord before it has a chance to setup). Conditions were very good on the snowmaking loop, and not quite as fast with the fresh snow. Fresh classic tracks were being set.

  Too much of a good thing? There. I said it. The blanket of new snow actually made it harder to ski. But I'll take it! :)
The extra loop near La Quadra is a great additional workout. Hopefully all this snows helps all that area ski trails.

  Made it out at 8:15 am and there had been plenty of traffic already. The course did not degrade much during my ski, even though lots of high schoolers were getting a good workout in. The cold snow just kept getting slower. The turns were all a brezze to negotate with no snowpolwed ridges and no ice. The new hill does add some excitement. But as others noted, the snow on it was super slow coming back up. There was a little loose snow, but most spots were still pretty firm. The most sugary spots were the hill up to the meadow and the hill up to the catwalk. It fet like a tough ski with the slow snow!

  Miles and miles of beautiful corduroy and deep classic tracks (side-by-side classic tracks in several areas) at Wirth this morning! The newly expanded 6.5K loop is in fantastic shape for both skating and classic skiing. No such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing! Dress in layers and you'll have a great ski under the sunshine today!

  Man-made snow only. At 9:30AM in -1F weather, the place was hoppin' and full of energy! There was only overflow parking available. Conditions were wonderful throughout. Tracks were well formed with everywhere except for some of the corners. I had great grip with Swix V20 and 2 layers of Polar in top. Only one corner with some ice where I saw several folks hit the "deck". The ice patch was 3-4' wide and easily avoided.
