Tim and I drove up to 7 srings Friday night in torrential rain, making us nervous for what the weekend would hold. Saturday morning I woke up at 9am to a nice white lawn and snow coming down!!
We ice skated down the first slope (Sunset slope) from the North Lot. We then tried Little North Face which was also essentially a sheet of ice. We moved over towards Giant Steps and Gunnar, which were in surpisingly good condition considering the weather the previous few days and the quick cool down. Yodler was in the best shape of all. Later in the day we skied Tyrol and Avalanche trying to escape the high winds...not much luck. We spent the rest of the afternoon by the Gunnar lift, as that seemed to be the place with the best wind protection. Overall, it was a great day to practice my ice skiing skills.
Today (sunday) the conditions were MUCH better as they were able to make snow all night and get some new fresh snow. The conditions were much better. Unfortunately for those who like the moguls, they had to groom down the moguls on Goosebumps.
The best part of the weekend so far is the lack of crowds! I don't think we waited more than a few minutes in the lift lines, if we even had to wait in line at all!
