99% skiable! One short section to billy goat, though it was snowing when I left...

Hey, Thanks for the info.
How is the snow down in the trees?
I attempted Hoosier Ridge this morning but it was totally socked in.

Snow in the trees... Solid skin up in the morning, soup by early afternoon. The tree section was the most challenging with downfall and bare spots.

Thanks again,

This is pretty much what I suspected.
