Hit up Brighton with Joe this morning. Snow was spring conditions for sure and on the slower side. As the sun stayed out and the day warmed up, conditions started to deteriorate in to that dreaded "wet carpet" suction snow. By 1230, a good part of the park was unrideable -- the "suction" feeling on the approach ramp to a rail, for example, is a killer. Throws off your speed, balance, everything. They need to get some kids out there throwing rock salt down on all the lips...
