That's a wrap.

What a difference a week makes. Or maybe it was the 70+ degree sunshine on Saturday. Last Sunday the summit was covered with new snow. White Nitro Extension was gorgeous. Bubblecuffer, Gondi, etc., were all in great shape. This Sunday it started with two trails and increased to four (maybe five if you count the #3 T-bar lift line). A few people wandered under the ropes and came out on White Nitro (which looked to have decent coverage). I suspect there was some walking to get back to Skyline.

By far the most snow was on Skidder. Not a bare spot on the entire trail and big moguls. That should be very ski-able for the next few weeks.

Seems like Mother Nature pulled the rug out from us on Saturday night. Sunday morning was cool (maybe even chilly) but bright. It stayed cool but got cloudy by noon.

Final pics for this season.

Looking down Narrow Gauge from the Spillway X-cut.

The best way out was on the remnants of the race course. Deep snow!

Image

I never saw anyone on upper Narrow Gauge.

Where did all the snow from last weekend go?

Image

The most interesting part of the day was skiing down #3 T-bar lift line. Surprised that it was all moguled up. There were a number of spots where the snow had collapsed and you had to avoid 2-3 foot holes.

See you next season!

T-Bar skied great on Saturday as did Nitro to Wedge, no walking required. A few brave souls were hitting Bubblecuffer but the lower part was done.
Great end to a great season!

How much snow is left up there to harvest?
