^ Nope. Broadway is now officially closed as of the Trail Report.

Then I saw a FB post from another friend that Broadway was open again today since they closed St. Anton for the racers. Saw on the cam there were rocky patches to avoid. Oy. :roll:

Day 68 of the season. Looks like I'll hit 70 with ease. Climax is still fun and backside of 3 is still great, pretty firm and fast thanks to the salting. First day I've downloaded from McCoy instead of boarding to the bottom. Broadway is completely bare for 100 yards. St Anton is still open though so you can ski to the bottom.

Very limited skiing now....Climax was fun today, Cornice was great at 7:40 AM along with the Drop Outs. St Anton back to Main is just perfect with all the salt they are laying down. Saddle Bowl is a bit firm until about 930 and then it gets soft and fun. If you're coming up bring your Mountain Bike and Fishing Pole.

No more farmed WROD leading from 3 to mid and G2. It's a dirt walk!

Are they trucking in snow from other patches to maintain the bottom of this?

I don't think they have to truck it in there's plenty of snow in Saddle Bowl all the way over towards chair 9.

Farm it down, truck it in, moving it around is all I'm saying.

9pm edit
Those coming up....Overcast all morning long, prolly same tomorrow saturday making for saddle and gremlins firm with all salting and lack of sun. Cornice should be soft. NWS has 50% for heavy rain on Saturday...

Was warned multiple times early morning climax was "triple black diamond"...not really but the chokes might be intimidating. Traffic might shut down the throat with more rocks exposed in the throat so watch out. Also look out for the original glacier layer from early season.

I never expected Climax to be done before closing day but it's closed.

I'm wondering about the traditional closing day party at the top since they didn't allow people to bring skis and boards up today.
