Caberfae Peaks 2/18/18

edited February 19 in Trip Reports
Trying to make good use of my $99 weekend season pass this was trip number 6 for the season, so it has cost $16.50 for a lift ticket each trip so far. 
It was 30-35 degrees and sunny when we got there around 9:30 in the morning. The snow was very hard and icy. After two runs on the North Peak we went and skied on the South Peak and with the sun out the snow was starting to soften up and it seemed it would be a good day for snow conditions. We went in for lunch around 11:30 (no tailgating this weekend) for about an hour and when we came back out the clouds had taken over and with that the ice and very hard packed snow came back. We were told they had issued around 3400 lift tickets so it was very busy, but each chair was filled to capacity, even Tim Meyer (1/2 of the ownership)  was at the lifts checking tickets and makeing sure the chairs were full. As far as the snow because it was so busy and good snow got pushed to the sides< so if you skied the edges of the trails you could find some decent snow.Over all almost 9,400' on a 400' hill it was another good day to be on skis.
