Shook my confidence for awhile.
All of the blues on the main face turned soft and moguly (is that a word) later in the day which was nice.
I was on the override bus from nyc to mt snow on Sunday. I totally agree with you the whole north face being icy as "FUCK". I spoke with a Mt Snow instructor on the lift and she explained they had 60mph winds on Saturday. There were HUGE ICE SPOTS! Not to be a snow snob but I dont ski snowboard in these types of conditions but i already woke up at 4.30am. Im glad someone agrees with me. The whole bus thought the conditions were just the best ever! Oh well! Im a snow snob.
