3" of fresh dry slow powder on top of a solid base. Not sure how much of the slowness was due to the Skintec base and how much was just - fresh dry powder. Felt like skiing on sand - double poled down most of the hills. But a great workout, snowflakes falling by headlamps always a soothing feeling. Wore a visored cap over a thin hat - did the trick of keeping snow off my glasses. Downhill slopes not open on Monday evening, so no glow from the lights bouncing off the low cloud cover. But when I got home and cleared the driveway, plenty of cloud glow from all the lights around town.
