When in doubt, go for the low hanging fruit. Pass closed at 4am with an opening predicted for 6-8 hours. I didn’t want to go to the resort and didn’t want to ski Oliver. I wanted to get to the east side and the goods.
We waited at Stateline 2 hours. They finally opened the road at 12:45.
We got over 4800′ of skiing between 1:15 and 4:45. You gotta love fruit when you can get it.
