Solid but icey hardpack with a little fresh snow on top.
We took a chance and drove up yesterday. The conditions were great. We skied for almost 5 hours. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine. It was so warm I ended up skiing with just a lightweight fleece top and no jacket.

Lovely spring like skiing today. Thanks. For the beautiful day!
