Any rocks poking through? Wondering which deck I should bring to the tailgate party.

Day 10 - Just like yesterday. Awesome corduroy perfect for hero turns. Best on the Eagle chair. Fun snowboarding (and working on carving 360's) all morning with Roxstock and LeopardSkin. Great turn out with Rob W, Jerry, Clay, Chris, Bob, Rob, Remi ...

Thanks to LeopardSkin for hosting the tailgate party with beer, crisps and poutine

Day 12 - Fun morning working on carving 360s on WindJammer with Marc B and Rob F. Rob pulled off the best 360s. I had to hop through most of mine ... very sad. Sunny sky. Softer than Sunday but still firm. Good turn out with Clay, Doug, Rob W, and Jerry on skis.

Day 14 - Carving 360s all morning with Marc. Soft grippy corduroy on upper Panaroma. Almost nobody there except Jerry on skis ... however, Marc and I still managed to collide on our 360s.

I went to cypress from 5:00-7:00. All of the corduroy had been scraped off leaving a glassy smooth sheet of ice on the stepper parts. Collins was by far the best run. We really need some new snow soon.

Thanks for the update, I haven't been up in a week and was considering going tonight. I'll check next week.

Day 15 (7 consecutive days) - Best conditions of the week. Soft grippy corduroy on upper Maelle Ricker and Panorama under sunny sky - perfect for plenty of carve 360s. Jasey Jay and low Maelle Ricker were ungroomed and dangerously icy - Yikes. Fun riding with Clay.
