Yeah John, sounds like you got there a bit late. I was standing in the lift line at 8:30am sharp. They were just shutting off the snow guns during the ride to the top.
Made one run down Limelight to loosen up and then hit the Expert quad the rest of the day. Snow was good in the morn, wide open, big grin carving fun for the first couple hours. Crud and mashed taters on Bold made for some fun and technical skiing, didn't touch Farside at all, bottom was looking kinda thin. I was initially dissappointed to not finds bumps on Exhi, but they had to preserve the base and the high speed carving that the groomers allowed was a nice change of pace. Made my final run at about 12:15 and couldn't believe how gnarly the 'front side' was getting....I packed it in after that.
