Warm Weather?

I'm from an area where we don't have mountains, but we have a few 'large hills' which they have decided to put ski lifts on and open a ski resort. All the snow around here has melted, but according to the resort's website they have 20-50 inches of base and all runs are open...

I've been planning to go hit the slopes with a few friends tomorrow, but today it was 65 out and tomorrow its supposed to be in the mid 50's. Is it a waste of my time to go out if it is going to be this warm?!?

Thanks
-HC

spring skiing is my fav time of the year. the conditions arent great, they are rather slow and wet, but its still tons of fun to board with a t shirt on. the reason they still have snow is because most places(around me at least) claim to have 75-100+ inches aka over 6 feet of snow, that shit aint goin to melt with a few days. nights are still cold right now as well depending on where your at.

And then you will go out west to ride on sand dunes.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

For some reason this really made me lol. I know I'll be on a 60+ degree mountain tomorrow!

EDIT: I've always wondered if the boards would do well in mud tbh.

Yeah, the resorts pack down the snow over the season and this is what the base is. Spring riding is probably the best because the lift tickets are cheaper, the snow is softer, and it is a lot warmer.

If you're buying tickets you're doing it all wrong.
