Just got back form 7S and let me first begin by saying that I really, really enjoy the new Yodeler Trail. It is like having a little bit of LM while that mountain is closed. Conditions were actually good, no stratch that they were awesome! I was a little hesitant to go out today due to the recent warm up/rain, but 7S proved that they definately are more than capable of rebuilding thier base in less than 24 hours. Snow was like powdered sugar and smooth as silk. Crowds were not a problem today for whatever reason, be it the Stiller Game or the warm up in recent days, so the longest we waited in a lift line was at the Gunnar Lift and we waited approx 15-20 minutes. Next trip down we skied right up and loaded. Overall, I was quite pleased with the trip to 7S today and can finally see the benefit of having such a hugh local mountain to keep me entertained.
There saturday and it was awesome. Late in the afternoon though over on Avalanche I noticed the snow getting sticky. It was kind of weird, one second you're hauling A then you hit a patch of what feels like glue and nearly head over the nose of the board. It wasn't just me either, I think most people were feeling.
Quote:If you came in along the catwalk, we did that too.
I had to take a little bit of an illicit run down the Gannar chair slope that was technically closed.
Down side, the park at 7 springs needs some work. I've always kind of felt their park was a little on the weak side. The run in was decent but the kicker was a kind of lame roller type thing that just ate away your speed so it gets tough to air off the top. They need to take a leaf out of Whitetails book. To give them their dues Whitetail does put together well thought out tables etc even if the run in is flat.
