OK so here's the scoop for anyone who still cares (I'm guessing at this point it is only Chomps lol)
Nub's was good on Friday, mid-50's, sunny, light breeze. Super slush snow, but not too slow, rideable and enjoyable. The park was alright, not what I expected from Nub's but at this point in the season you can't fault them for it. They had a few jumps, nothing enormous, and about 8 or so different jibs & rails.
Boyne was great on Saturday, overnight temps were low enough to firm up overnight and daytime high only made it to the mid-40's, overcast all day which made flat light but kept the snow sliding pretty good. 75% of the terrain was still open and in really good shape. Snow was heavy slushy spring snow but you could carve a line down anything, no matter how steep, no ice anywhere. The park was good, only two smaller jumps but the jibs were more and better than Nub's. Others said it was not as impressive of a build as last year, but I thought it was still pretty good.
No lift lines. Turnout was good at Boyne, marginal at Nub's where there were maybe only 40 cars in the parking lot.
Long-term forecast has overnight lows in the 30's for the foreseeable future, I think Boyne will make it to May pretty easily.
