What a great day at Waterman. I drove up in the afternoon, no chains needed, and got a half day ticket with their season pass discount (Mammoth MVP pass holder). The snow was really heavy cement, but there were still plenty of untouched areas, and it was soft enough to make for really nice landings off jumps. Lots of blue skies and sun. Amazing for late march!
