10-16" settled snow on a firm base made fun turns from Exit chutes to SE slopes of the King.  And skiable without stone grind all the way to the base lodge.

Whoohoo! Nice to see there's finally some snow up there. Which lodge are you referring to? I was thinking of starting near the main Summit Central lodge and skinning up the Golden Nugget alpine run to access the nordic trails that way. Or maybe there's a different route with better coverage?

nothing wrong with a little stone grind to clean off last years pollen.
