    Wind direction matters, as does the peak gusts. Winds and gusts can change significantly with altitude. Mid day freezing rain had to be an issue on the detach lifts. Southeast winds were 90 degrees to K1, and the wind fence on Skyeship II was now on the wrong side. Always hard to second guess, but with wind and icing it wasn't that big a head scratcher.

    Temp outside is 30⁰ at 11pm, and while there was a few hours of light freezing rain, no crust has formed. There was about 1/16"- glaze on southern facing glass on the car at the end of the day. The snow has some fluff and is eminently packable. The mountain will be more wind affected.

    Yeah, I'm still learning this mountain. We did get some late afternoon runs after they opened the bubble. Yesterday was wonderful and looking forward to today. Friends arrived last night, the husband has skied NE for decades, so should be a good time.

    Current state of the Superstar build. It's big. Big. May is so far in the bank it's coming out the other side.
