Went up 4:00-7:00, it was dumping snow the whole time, so much fun. The wind was shifting the snow around too so you could keep finding fresh tracks. Coming down was a gong show, some people driving 10km/h and not pulling over for people to pass and I saw 4 cars in ditches. I’m sure there will be many more by the end of the night. Tomorrow morning should be awesome.

Wednesday morning OSR. Corduroy is pristine and will remain so for quite a while, because it's frozen solid.

Day 8 - Pinched out an hour long of skiing. It was crap.

Nice grippy corduroy at higher elevations but crusty towards the bottom. First time on Crazy Raven this season - sweet at the top but dead baby heads at the bottom. First time I came down on Ashley McIver this season - meh.

My constipation ended at 10am so called it a day.

Snowmobile is down for the count this weekend, at the dealer for repairs and such :(

So called up Jan, and we went for a night rip up Cypress on Saturday evening.

Was surprised at how good the conditions were! Got above the fog after only 1.5 min on the chair lift, and maybe an hour later it all cleared off for good anyways!

Snow was soft, hardly any icy patches, and much less cut up than usual! Enjoyed surprisingly smooth runs considering it was the evening after a weekend day!

I think the fog on the webcam scared people away, as this was also the most dead I have seen it this year also! No lift lines makes me a happy shredder :P
