The Eagle & Easy Rider chairs are open.

Fork to Lower Panorama. Snow was slightly firm due to the lower freezing level, around 300 or 400 metres. There are some pebbles and the occasional rock, but NBD, cuz easy to see in advance. Used a rock board (Burton Vapor aluminum honeycomb core & Burton C60 carbon fibre bindings), just in case. Bluebird.

The pulled pork & bacon poutine is more expensive this year.

Day 1 - Squeezed in 30 minutes of skiing on opening day under sunny sky. Was already tracked out when I arrived but had to dart off anyway (super busy day). Just realized some of my upper thigh muscles had atrophied over the summer.

Day 2 - Over an hour skiing nice groomers under bluebird sky. Some rocks but avoidable. Not crowded at all.

Day 3 - An hour skiing under overcast sky. Lighting was a little flat but groomers were amazing (soft pack) - way better than past 2 days. Fun riding with Chris is morning.
