Sierra prides itself on now making ANY artificial snow so therefore it usually opens late. Northstar and places make their own snow, making them open earlier.

Well dudes look like roundtop, liberty, and WT wont be open this weekend. I really even doubt they will open next week. I hope im wrong. My guess would be they will open the day after christmas. If we get colder weather, then maybe friday...

I hit up Wisp for its anniversary 10$ lift ticket.
They had just 4 "trails" open. Definitely was getting there in terms of snow coverage. I felt as though they could have opened maybe 1 or 2 more, but thats not my choice to make.

The riding was pretty good in the morning but only having 2 runs that weren't on a flat slope meant things got boring after 20 runs.
They did have some features in the park, but didn't head over there, just wanted to get in some solid runs and mess around have some fun before it became pretty crowded, so I headed out.
Now I'm itching for some other places closer to me to open up.

Yeah once everybody showed up around 1230 it got so crowded on the runs that started to get real annoying dodging everybody.
Supposedly they have like 7 or more runs open but I really couldn't go that far this weekend. I'm planning on making a trip in January or February for a few days.
