Sad part is, that's also how it was down in Vriginia for us. On opening day for Massanutten last season, they only had two runs open that weren't even covered by at least 3in of snow. And Wintergreen had that problem all season long because of the rain and high temperatures. It would literally be ice for one foot and then mud and grass for the next, and god knows what possessed them to lay gravel in certain parts of trails(sarcasm-I know why), but it tore the crap outta my lo-fi because they covered it with just enough snow to where you just couldn't see it. So carving was out of the question for the a good part of the start of the season and suicidal from about late January on.
