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.
I may have been on the same bus as you riding to the mountain. I got on at Emilios/Queens though.
If you stuck to the main area on the front side of the mountain things weren't that bad.
Maybe I'm showing my snow snobbiness as well but I was felt the day was pretty average overall. They definitely need another huge dump for it to be a worthwhile trip. Meanwhile, they're getting a wintry mix right now.
