Not bad at all. we didn't make first chair or anything, rolled in to the mountain around 9; the gondy was less busy today than yesterday, and were still hitting fresh tracks on the backside at noon. By noon it was slightly more crowded but never waiting more than like 2 mins for a chair back there and conditions were pretty much all time.

Probably the best snow I've ridden. So light you couldn't stay on top of it, but it didn't matter as long as you were on a steep enough line you could just point it and push through it.
