Arrived early with J & L — early conditions were decent (and we parked in lot 1). Scraped off later, of course. Upper Blastoff was closed for grooming until 11 or so — then, though the snow was deep, it was filled with death cookies. Bonanza still closed. Skyway Ledges almost solid ice; so was West Side. Lower Hansen-Chase skied well enough. Took a couple of runs on the feature-free East Side (there had been jumps earlier in the season) which was much about rollers. Spent most of our time on Ridge, which retained whatever new snow they'd blown on it.
