| 3 of us went to Yankee Springs yesterday, Sunday, for *5 hours* of nonstop ski challenge, fun and great scenery. Perfect packed powder conditions. We skied basically everything, including most of the mtbike trail. Quite a few people were out but that area and that snow could easily support hundreds of skiers. The north ski loop, "F" to "K" near McDonald Lake was glorious, but it was all great. Big hills, technical descents that all went perfectly. Totally done in by the end.
There's no grooming there. (Pigeon Creek west of GR has grooming.)
It looks like they have 6" consolidated snow. We heard 12" fell.
That's the great thing about low-overhead events like the Potto Raid, or skiing "just plain trails" in general. It's easy to just pull up stakes and go where there's snow.
