Doug substituted veggies for more stuffing. Doug doesn't like veggies.

Went up for the afternoon and the snow was hard pack down low and chunky up top. Not much good snow to be found anywhere. Hopefully snow tonight will make for good snow tomorrow morning and kiting in the afternoon.

Day 26 - Fun in the sun. Excellent groomers for snowboarding. Chilli enough for some brain freezing runs.

Day 28 - Super grippy corduroy perfect for hero turns on skis. Spend most of my runs on Jasey Jay and Ashley McIver. Lions chair broke down on Saturday and will be down for another week. I suspect Eagle runs are now double groomed.

Surprisingly great day at Cypress. About 10cm of fresh snow to start but as it was snowing heavily it accumulated quickly. The Lions Chair was still out of action so we did some nice turns on the Eagle then Raven. Headed over to the Midway Chair and did multiple laps there in about 15-20 cm with almost no people around. Excellent smooth turns around Midway and the lower parts of Bowen Face and Rainbow. Had the pulled pork and fries for lunch. Mmmm good. Thought about waiting around for the Lions Chair to resume operation but was told it would be a couple of hours so I headed home for dessert!
