As for the trails, I haven't seen anyone hiking in a while, none of the trails are broken yet. I imagine I'll see somebody up here today, they've opened the roads last i've heard, and the sun's out. If you are planning on hiking up, realize that it will take you much, much longer than normal in this snow, be prepared and be aware when it's time to turn around. My season up here starts Thanksgiving and finishes in the beginning of march sometime, Haven't figured out if i'll be here for pre-season yet, or not. Xtratuffs aren't necessarily for hiking, but treat me well when working up here. As for my room, unless you're a twenty-something lady interested in fermented tea, Vonnegut, and helping me learn French/Spanish phrases to help me not get robbed while in Europe this spring... it's very unlikely you'll see it. It's the room closest to the kitchen, where Katie from last season stayed. Cool colors last night during sunset.
