The surface crust easily supported boot-packing and made for tricky skinning. The corn cycle seemed to start later than expected (around 1:30pm), we suspect due to the consistently light winds with regular moderate gusts keeping surface temperatures low. The runnels are well developed and wide-spread, making for exciting skiing on all aspects!
