Ski Sundown 1.20.13

Date(s) Skied: 1.20.13
Resort or Ski Area: Ski Sundown
Conditions: sunny, soft snow
Trip Report: arrived for afternoon skiing. overflow parking lot was in use, but we scored a recently vacated spot near the lodge.

The place looked packed - lift lines looked a bit ominous (for sundown), lodge was overflowing, grill was busy on the deck and the sun was shining. I'm sure it was a successful day for the mountain.

skied all over the mountain. every trail was pretty soft. Bumps on lower stinger were pretty nice (at least the first 2/3). Lines were 10 minutes if you waited in the main queue, which i did a couple times with daughter and her friend. After they dumped me i hit the singles line and it was 1-2 minutes tops.

Gunny skied great most of the afternoon. Soft snow with some REAL bumps forming at the top. Around 4 PM the sun dropped low and the soft snow started firming up. I'm sure the 6 PM groom put a nice creamy finish on the mountain for the evening skiers.
