What a wonderful day at Sunshine Village. The sun and the milder temperatures made for the perfect day. This was a Saturday and the parking lot was full by, I would guess 9:00. You would not know how busy it was down at the Gondola as on the hill there was no waiting for lifts. It could have been that we started on Goats Eye and were lucky enough to get the opening run on Upper Afterburner. We did one run all the way down to test the new corduroy. Then one partial run before turning into the trees between Afterburner and Scapegoat. The untouched snow was very crystalized by the very cold weather. Plus first through finds the rocks. The right side of Rolling Thunder is now open as to is Lower Scapegoat which has been groomed. I was there on Tuesday and both Lower Scapegoat and Upper Afterburner are now very hard and slick. Best run for me is Lower Afterburner.
