Michael here. I just came in from skiing Wild Rice, Blueberry, Rocky Road, Zinger, and Hidden Pond. It’s impressively good for a five inch snowfall. The first inches were heavy enough for support, and the top is lovely medium powder, so skis perform in and out of the tracks. The skiing is moderately fast, not icy, and quite safe. We don’t intend to roll or groom, so I doubt that skating will work and it’s hard on the snow. There were no rocks except of course Rocky Road and the upper part of Zinger, and even they were easy to avoid. Bring rock skis if you are very concerned, but at early in the weekend they should not be needed.
