Being our first time at Corbin we were conservative with our terrain choices. Although other riders indicated that the snow is not as good as it usually is, we were very happy with the well groomed trail and found some areas that were safe and no tracks yet. We did see snowballing and pinwheeling on the slopes beside the trail which made us pay close attention to the higher elevations above us. I am a new rider this year and the pinwheels were remarkable to see. The pictures show them clearly. No cracking or whumping heard. Overall our conservative terrain choices made for a very enjoyable day at Corbin.
