David, Garrett, and I rode yesterday. I was first one up. Got there expecting icey conditions and crowds. Got onto an empty lift and stepped off to softish snow. Took a run on great snow conditions. Pleasantly surprised that there was very minimal ice and those patches were reserved for the sides where the sunlight didn't reach.
There were two main runs open. One or the other was consistently empty. However, by 3:00pm, crowds started build. No biggie though as Dave and I called it quits around that time. Garrett had to skip out earlier than us.
Needless to say, I am totally ready for Crystal now. Oh, and I made sure not to injure myself again haha.
