Put simply, skiing conditions are bad presently.

Objectively: nearly every rollover or ridge (or basin) contains a wet slab crown and debris from the recent rains, in some cases grand R5 slides.  The debris is refrozen chunder.  Runnels abound.  Coverage is low.  On the plus, a scant inch of new snow in places made the softening hardpack carveable.  This week's midweek forecast presents an opportunity for the corn enthusiasts - Wednesday is looking delightful.
