We found great coverage, cool breeze, and blue skies today.  Skiing was somewhat disappointing:  breakable crust over 10" slush on N slopes 5000-6000', 4" slightly grabby butter on other aspects.  Still too early for skinny corn skis, my 70mm's made the skiing more challenging.  Steeper slopes were sloppy debris and there are some glide cracks to avoid.
