Alpine had better snow coverage. I was there most of the day Saturday. They did shut down as these warm temps are killing us. The lifts were being attended to but the loading area was a bit barren.
As the day progressed it got quite warm and slow on the snow. As you said though riding this was better than not riding. That was my first time out for the season as well.
