West Mountain Conditions

Last night West fired up the snow guns for the first time this season.  I can hear that hum from my house.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

Went over the West to stretch my legs after work yesterday and was pleasantly suprised.  The 3-inches of new was mixed with some loose granular and piled up along the sides of almost every trail.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

Yeah, the skiing was good Wednesday night.  But… overall I’ve been unimpressed with West’s snowmaking and grooming last year and so far this year.  In the past I felt they really put out a quality product. While there are many factors, not the least of which is weather, the bottom line is I think their product has deteriorated.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

Hard and fast tonight as was expected, lost a lot of snow on all the trails. Time to make again.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

Good conditions at West last night.  Snowmakers have built up some impressive mounds, guns were running last night.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

I hit West after work yesterday and I have to say, it was really nice.  It snowed all evening, hard at times, and was soft hero snow.  I didn't hit anything even close to hard pack.  We were hitting 4-5 inches of untracked along the sides of the trails all evening.  For the last hour the liftie told us there were only 8 people on the hill and 5 of them were kids, so that's why were were getting the untracked.  Skied till the lifts closed at 9 p.m. I only ski West in the evenings, and this was the best night skiing in the past couple years.

Re: West Mountain Conditions

Hit West last night. $17 for 8 or so runs. They got a lot of snow, but it was the heavy stuff. Got my wife back out on skis for the first time in 2 years.

On the downside, the place is kind of falling apart. No brush cutting, chairs and poles rusting away. Etc. Sad.
