Ski Report - Great day, best spring day for me this season, warm nice, sun nice, crowd nice, skiing very nice, SunnySide - ouch nice (how many times?), groomers pretty good and MIFB was awesome by 9:15 - butter smooth and  fast (did many runs there and #1 got a few good ones also on it).  Light early crowd and never a real issue all day for lifts we rode - REX, FQex, GVex and a couple on CHex).  Snow was firm early but got happy sluch faster than yesterday.  #1 did a stop at CB lodge, but otherwise skied her best and longest and biggest of the season.  I took no breaks and skied way deep into the afternoon - well 1:45, Yee Haa!  Most fun, biggest vert of the season (still not massive), lots of great slushy bumps - perfect! The rest of the season could be like today and I'd be very happy.  Finally got real spring retro with Hawaii shirt, retro Okley Sunglasses, Baseball cap and Baseball gloves!  Gotta love that.

Other - Pay lot halfish full, B and C and cars but maybe only halfish full if there had been any parking control.  Drive up and down were very pleasant, with more elk noticed this morning than all season (most around what I call the Greenwater Lakes road - FS40?).

First post here, and I'll have to say this report was spot on!  Yes, this was one of those glorious spring days you dream about all year (and that Covid stole from us last year).  Arrived around 11 and skied mostly frontside (Sunnyside + Memorial) until around 2:30 by which time it got really heavy.  Then switched over to chair 6 to find perfect corn on all of the south and east-facing lines up until they closed the chair.  Hit Employee Housing in the middle of the day -- decent snow but lots of random avi debris and crappy slog out I5, plus Exterminator which was great up top but heavy and gloppy down low.

Yes, ddk said at all. PB, skiers left, was worth repeats, We did tite chair 6 chair line skiers left, a run we called The Pinnacles, which we haven't done in a while. And of course multiple Memorials and Sunnysides. The ski out down Kelly's gap to lower E was fun.  We even stopped for a beer at the sunny Naches Tavern on the way home.  It was just a superb Hawaiian shirt, spring skiing day.
