Starting tomorrow (Thursday), the hill will be empty for the foreseeable future :)

Day 26 - with sore muscles from yesterday I was undecided about returning to 3rd Ave ... I think I chose well

Started foggy and firm but I persevered with LeopardSkin as conditions improved ... happy to get some turns in today.

Day 27 - Good groomers until 10:30 when it got a little bumpy. Worried the snow might not last as brown patches are starting to show.

It was raining when I reached the parking lot this morning but turned to drizzle by the time the hill opened. The grooming was surprisingly good for the most part - except for the mid point of Horizon. The run of the day was Humpty Dumpty which was smooth and relatively soft.

Day 29 - Decided to snowboard today before the torrential rains wash away Cypress tomorrow.

Way better than expected! Minimal drizzle (stayed totally dry).

Untracked SOFT and cushy corduroy almost felt like powder ... perfect for cranking turns endlessly as Cypress was practically empty today.

Day 30 - Went to scout out the aftermath of the torrential rains ... pleasantly surprised it wasn't worse. More brown patches but Collins, Upper fork, Panaroma and Windjammer were fine. Enjoyed riding with Mike today. Fingers crossed for Monday.
