Excellent2014-03-14All the snow NEOC got is making for the most fun this year. I skied yesterday at 3pm and they were just heading out to groom again when I finished. The snow was soft, fast and fun. Today may even be a "call in sick day!" Trails are graded in the traditional - green, blue and black - for easy, moderate and difficult. Going to head out there again today.
