Whaleback Saturday 1/24

Headed up with 2 friends knowing time was limited by an evening event I had down in Mass last night.
Coverage good on open trails, grooming was horrendous. Possibly the worst ive ever seen. So inconsistent….decent tilled pp followed by sheer ice/stones then hardpack. Tough to get into a good rhythm. They had more open than i expected so a bit of variety was nice.
Decent crowd but all Core kids…hardly anyone just free skiing like us.
Lift kept stopping/running slowly which added a touch of frustration.
Did about a dozen runs then went to the bar.
Bartender says groomer has been broken a lot this season which doesn’t help given their late start and weak snowmaking system.
They were blowing on the Face and should have that open soon.
This next storm will be awesome for them and should get them 100% open.
Not a bad day as was nice to hang with some buddies and the beer was cold but conditions pretty rough.
