I was up on the slopes of Mt. Mansfield this afternoon, and while I did pop my skis off for that mud strip, there was still skiable snow all the way down to the top of that new manicured grassy slope above (what I believe to be) the new gondola station.  It wasn't really snow for turning in that last section, but it beat walking and it could easily be done without encountering any rocks.  The coverage looked similar to other pictures I've seen, so I'm guessing not too much melting happened on the shady slopes.  I'll try to get a report out with a few pictures when I get a chance.
