Re. Rock skis and the joys of skiing thin cover, I think you all know that I’m in the “all skis are rock skis” camp. I believe that Snowflake is headed in our direction so we’ll have to patient with her. The first base gouge cuts the deepest.
I had this same debate yesterday and went with Magic. But I am paying for a pass and a room and they are practically giving it away at Magic! And half price beers and burger special at the hotel restaurant - win-win.
Going to be my first time at Magic. Currently saying 3-6" of snow and no change to rain (per weather.com) hoping remains!
