Groomed this afternoon for skate from Little Dell gate to Big Mountain Pass. There was no new snow except for maybe 1/2″ at the top. Conditions from the gate to the restroom at approximately mile 1.5 were a mix of hard as ice snow and actual ice. Descending to the gate from the restroom is extremely tricky where falls and injuries are possible. It’s the worst I have observed and skied there and not what attracts people to skiing. Advanced skiers with a tolerance for these conditions down low will be rewarded further up the route. It’s quite good from the Affleck monument to the top.
