). I think there's another 8 or 10" dumping tonight so it should still be pretty good by Friday so I'd say by afternoon time you may have a wait for some of the good runs.
I'm still a total newbie, so I haven't done anything other than a billion bunny hill runs and two of the intermediate ones. Out of the two intermediates I've done (Hogsback & Skyline), I really enjoy Skyline. I will one day get the nerve (and skill) to hop over to 7th Heaven after that lift. But I like that there was a lot of ungroomed areas on that run.
Continue riding Hogs and Skyline, but dont ride the groomers, try Hogs under the chair or Merk (sp?) Woods, great place to learn trees, steeps etc. When my friends and I started, our boards didnt have edges, so we were forced to ride off of the groomers, now looking back, I'm glad we did, it made us much better riders. Just start out at slower speeds, pick your lines and dont get stuck on the flats.
