Pretty much nothing is groomed. Some of Hunter One and smaller areas, but for the most part, every slope has been left untouched. Minya and East Side have enormous mounds of snow that will blow your minds! It is sunny and cold out, with a lot of wind on trails like Heuga, but it is unbelievable...so break out your twin tips and hit the slopes! Official count....26"!!!!
Here are some photos I took this morning...
Wind-created snow drift at the top of Heuga...well over a foot and a half!
Pretty much every slope is covered with numerous inches of powder...this is an understatement!
More pics coming soon I hope...enjoy!
