I dragged myself out of bed this morning, put on my shorts and hoodie and was on the Polar Bear at 9 AM sharp. Tyrol, Goosebumps, Avalanche and Wagner (from best to worst) were all very skiable and the left upper portion of Stowe could also be carefully negotiated. The only tricky part was the narrow strips presumably made by the groomers last night that led into each slope. These became rocky and muddy after a few hours. Otherwise, the cover was very good, except for the bare spots of course. Glad I went...a very nice last hurrah.
