Sunday River 11/28, 11/29, 12/1

We skied on Thursday and Friday, and will ski again on Sunday.

Thursday was really good. 4" of snow fell on Wednesday night made all upper mountain trails really good, including natural terrain like upper cut and locke line and some parts of goat path. The coverage were good. Racing team wasn’t training on thanksgiving day so we got to ski T2, which has a lot of wind drift. Right stuff is wind scoured on top but skied really well the rest of the way. Almost all trails skied well that day. Happy that we made the drive there. The terrain was more fun that Killington a few days ago.

Cold temperature returned on Friday. They also opened Spruce Peak, upper risky business skied well under the gun, a lot of soft snow. All upper mountain trails, including natural terrain skied nicely. Lower mountain had wet snow the day before then turned into frozen granular overnight. Grooming helped but it got skied off by noon. This was supposed to be another great day with moderate amount of crowds. However, due to incompetent management, they kept shutting down lifts due to mechanical issues. Barker was down in the morning, by noon both Locke and Spruce were down, the Locke was up the barker was down, when spruce is done, locke was only loading every other chair. Not a lot of people but long line like Stratton weekend. What a shit show. The skiing was good but we only got 10ish run before calling it a day early. There was also a point Last Tango was open. It shouldn’t open, a bunch of icy single track. The trees on the side of lazy river are skiable.

Here’s a short video if you want to see the condition.

We skipped Saturday and opted for hiking. Will ski more on Sunday and report back.
