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.
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.
