If I remember correctly, they use a couple of the center left (from bottom) trails. Check the website for specifics.
Here is a quote from the details in the "Events Page":
Public ski and snowboard traffic will not be allowed on Cascade, Slaymaker, Spur or Mountaineer trails. Public ski and snowboard access will be available on the Flying Eagle lift and trail system but racers will have first access to the Mountaineer and Cascade Lifts. The pro category will use the Cascade lift and the amateur category will use the Mountaineer lift.

Yes - ALL OF THEM (Silver Creek) - today. LOL With 100% open, they closed Silver Creek as there were no future reservations! Snowshoe is always that way. Oh, they pushed the April 9th closing back to the 2nd too!!! Went from 99% occuopancy to 22% and are 100% snow covered (except for Lower Shays and Widowmaker. AND SNOWSHOE IS STILL BLOWING SNOW !!!!!!!! THAT's what a company like Intrawest does for a resort. But alas - they can't deal with NO BUSINESS and 100% skiable !

So a company like Intrawest can with perfectly good snow condition lose 75% of its occupancies and then squander tens of thousands of dollars just to stay open a couple extra days? Impressive.

Wisp is still blowing snow, too, and in case you haven't heard they're not owned by Intrawest.
