Ski Day 15: More of the Same but Cloudy

Vert: 11,004 m YTD Cum vert: 155,850 m
Runs: 18 YTD Cum Runs: 262

I guess I shouldn't expect conditions to change if the weather doesn't change, and the weather didn't change except to get even cloudier.

As you can see, the cloudbase sat at the top of Goat's Eye and Angel all day resulting in mostly flat light, with the worst places for viz below cloudbase being Boundary Bowl and Angel Flight. The snow remains OK, though the groomers are starting to reveal rocky patches, especially on Rolling Thunder and the top of the Angel Traverse. These are, however, well marked by the ski patrol, so easily avoided and not an issue. Still no ice has appeared. I heard that there was warm temps and sun on Sunday; some snow showed evidence of freeze thaw and was a bit crusty. Thought the temps today hovered around zero or slightly above, there was a cold breeze, especially up high, so it didn't feel that warm.
