Ski Report - Limited info from the Hamster...other than I managed to get a new season vert high and we actually didn't leave Crystal until after 1pm (WOW!).  Light early crowd, very nice sunny conditions early with a little fuzzy grey trying to blow in late morning, but it blew through, and the sun came back to full on heat.  Groomers early (LS, MIFB and the Valley) softened nicely very early, grooming was rough in spots after yesterday's spring temps and the mountain is looking very springy at this early date - looks kinda like late March right now. Rocks popping out in lots of places - heard a rumor that the groomer cats might have problems soon with the lack of new snow and warm temps on the steeper slopes.  Ultra-light season is over crowd, no lift lines anywhere, not many folks anywhere also.  #1 had a great early morning on FQex and when we hooked up, she was skiing strong both up top and back later on FQex.   Nice to ski with Ms. Ferk today.  Fun day in the sun.... probably should get a post from CD about all the "BIG" places he skied today!

Other - Did an ultra-late lunch at CB lodge...split a Glutless  Burger with #1 (very good) ...soup wat that Ched Brocc stuff - yuk!  Empty lodge when we were there.  Did a few more runs after the lunch break before the shadows started creeping in to refreeze the slopes.  Special folks' lot was massive and massively empty today, rest of A might have almost pushed a 1/3 full, Carpool lot was typically empty, B lot made it to the shuttle stop and the rest of C was trying hard to fill up.... Drive up and down was at cruise control happy speeds.... Nice day for a season that's starting to look bleak in the snow department.
