Was up there this afternoon beginning at around noon. Very warm and fairly crowded but not the worst I have seen.
Mixed bag on conditions, Dobie was in good condition with lots of new bumps since last weekend. Upper Diamond and the terrain park were good as well. Lower Diamond looking pretty ragged with some slush spots. Cross trails were okay but upper was looking kind of iffy towards the end of the day.
Blue Terrain: Eagles Swoop was very nice. Upper part of Tyro looking kind of grassy and rutted out. Did not ski the others but things seemed okay from the lift.
Daughter reported good conditions in the Highlands.
Looks like some snow making temps late in the week so maybe they can recover those areas...gonna take a few days though.
BTW, Blue Ridge Express is typically a choke point as you need to ride it get back to the base area. The last few weeks there have been long lines on the Dobie Side but you can practically walk on if you line up on the Diamond side...especially as a single.
