Tenney Mountain 3/18/2018
After a number of years of anticipation I was finally able to ski Tenney and it was worth it! It was a cold bluebird day with lots of snow on the ground. Temperatures were in the single digits and teens with moderate winds. There were a good number of people there, especially in the afternoon, but it was never busy and very little was scraped off. Everything that had been cleared of brush was open and cover was excellent with a deep base of packed powder and powder. Trails not cleared yet were being poached regularly, but there were plenty of options without ducking ropes. There were multiple woods areas which were skiable and there was plenty of deep, untracked powder left.
The open terrain has a lot of variation and the mountain is very fun to ski. The Hornet Double and Platter Pull are open. The platter pull is slightly separate from the main mountain and serves a beginner run and the tubing park. The terrain off the double is mostly middle intermediate to low expert, but there are also low intermediate and middle expert options. The runs vary greatly and most switch from wide to narrow multiple times. Glades areas such as Hornet Glade and Hemlock Glade are relatively clear and skiable. It is great fun to ski there and it is one of my new favorite mountains.
