    Cool morning up here. There is a bit of snow still falling and pockets and fog keep rolling through. Reporting spring snowfall can be difficult, but the place is definitely skiing more than we reported today.

    While conditions in much of the ski area have turned into Spring snow, there are a few patches of winter conditions hanging out there. Typically, these are the highest and most Northerly facing aspects like the North Pole region and The Spine. I did just find some extraordinary Winter skiing on Loafer. The cat drivers had groomed most of the trail last night and early this morning it received an inch coating of soft, windblown snow. The skiing was fantastic.

    As you look at the image below, keep in mind that next season we will be adding another 100 acres of gladed skiing to the West of Loafer. In the photo, the current ski area boundary is the left side of Loafer. Next season, that 100 acres will be to the skier's left of that current boundary.

    Some consistently good skiing and snow be found from Black Bear to Long Chute. The weekend storm deposited snow heavily in the lower 75% of these trails.  Both of these trails have the longest vertical drop in Montezuma Bowl. Black Bear can be reached very easily just below the top of Larkspur. Long Chute can be accessed from the  "mini hike" that starts at the unload station of the Lazy J.
