That looks like a sweet day.

Re: McCauley Conditions

McCauley season pass holder here and I can't wait to get up there this weekend.  We skied last weekend and although the temps were a bit on the cold side, trail conditions were really good.  And it wasn't crowded at all.

Crazy Fridays are in play for McCauley today.  $12 for a lift ticket.

Wish I could have come up mid-week...looks awesome.

Re: McCauley Conditions

Powder everywhere...trees, mogul runs, everywhere.  Every run is a powder run.  McCauley got another 5 inches Sunday night and the conditions are fabulous.  The one tip I'll offer is to dress warm as it can get windy up top.

I really like McCauley, go there with the misses. I just wish it had another 500' of vertical.

Re: McCauley Conditions

After a disappointing trip to Gore last Sunday, it was a pleasant surprise to head back to McCauley and find conditions more like mid-winter than early spring.  No ice to be found and groomed trails were good and fast.  Glades are starting to show in some spots but still very ski-able.  Outside of Decamp being closed, the rest of the mountain is open and a great time skiing was had.

Re: McCauley Conditions

Unfortunately they lost almost all the snow from the storm last week. Hopefully they get some this week

Re: McCauley Conditions

Time to resurrect the McCauley Conditions thread, especially since the mountain is skiing so well.  My son and I went up  yesterday (Friday, Jan 6th, 2017) and conditions were powder and packed powder on all of the open runs and you just can't beat the $12 Crazy Friday lift ticket.  Skyride was my favorite run of the day with the glade trails a close second.  

Conditions were ripe for snow guns and they were going strong on Playmate, Sidewinder, Racer and Skyride.  But don't let the guns deter you, they're all part of building up the mountain for the upcoming events.

Sorry I don't have any more pictures but my new GoPro (from Xmas) crapped out after 37 seconds of video .  This picture is from the overlook at the top of the mountain.
