The snow was better than I expected (8"-15" crust/rime/wind-affected---grauple), but the vis sucked (10' or so). FR level around 4.5K.  There was sun and rainbows in the distance, but orographic flow kept helio in grauple/wind/clouds. I did a couple laps on the far west shot - It was great to ski and be in some winter conditions finally.
