Any obvious reasons why Symphony hasn't been running yet?
From memory, I don't think they usually get it going until closer to the holiday season (third weekend of December? Maybe even later). Guessing it's a cost savings thing. It would have been nice to have it spinning this weekend as it takes some pressure off Harmony/Peak and allows for lazy Flute laps if one is so inclined.
We were a bit late getting to Creekside, by about 8:15 the line was already back to the stairs. It took us about an hour to get on the gondola, when I looked back around 9am the line appeared to snaking all the way to Starbucks/Canski - never seen that before. Got a couple nice runs in Chunkys and Harmony lift line trees then skied Harmony the rest of the day. Wow. The snow quality was ridiculous. Faceshot after faceshot. We went into Khyber at the end of the day which was pretty much untracked. Coverage is fine until the last few pitches where you need to watch for holes and deadfall, then the ski out is alder bushwacking and open creeks.
Bring on the next storm system.
