May 23,2012 Mission Ridge
« on: 05/23/12, 07:55 PM »

Trying to take full advantage of the last few remaining top to bottom skiing days left at Mission.  The cooler weather has helped slow the melt, but I suspect that by this weekend it will be hard to make it from the top to bottom without taking skis off.  It was cold this morning (29) so I planned for a late start, and at 1500 it was buttery corn for the top 1200, then a little grabby the rest of the way.  The resort is opening up the summer road with a groomer, and the mud on the lower slopes will not help preserve what little is left on the lower mountain. Yesterday's snow was pretty well melted, except the very top.
