As long as it doesn't get cold enough to freeze overnight, and as long as it doesn't dump a bunch of rain, conditions will be tolerably slow & slushy

I know the West side got some snow last weekend and earlier in the week but I imagine they also are experiencing some thaw right now so conditions are really going to be day-to-day. Pine Knob the other night was borderline "bad" but I heard it was awesome last night and Alpine Valley today was pretty good & soft slushy.

Pando is pretty limited, all rope tows and park-oriented if I'm not mistaken. If that's what you're looking for, good, but if not, you should probably do Bittersweet.
