Craig's Report - November 30, 1996

Continuing Great

I was just skiing with my eight year old and his friends, but what I saw was still very nice with many excellent turns to be had. It is now six p.m. and it has been snowing steadily for about three hours at about -3 C. Since I have some friends from Alberta over who were skiing the whole mountain, I thought I would have a few guest comments: :-)


The conditions are incredible: deep, soft snow made each of my turns like a dream. Les conditions de ski sont incroyables, j'ai ski toute la journe et la neige est reste aussi poudreuse qu'au dbut de la journe. Certaines pistes par contre sont maintenant remplis de bosse mais elles demeurent petites et trs molles. Quelle dbut. de saison!


Wow! They say I can't eat until I tell everyone how great it was. Does it help to say I am exhausted and starving and yet after a day like today I still have a smile on my face. It is a great way to start the season - I managed to comb the mountain from Easter Bowl, Sunnyside, Boomerang, Cedar Ridge, etc. and could not find one run that was less than enjoyable. The soft snow really helps when your body decides it wants to get close to the mountain. Looking forward to more fun tomorrow if my first of the season ski legs hold up.


The snow gods have been good to Fernie. I didn't get on the mountain until noon but there was still lots of fresh snow left. The runs had lots of soft chopped powder but who skis the runs. Some of the trees had knee deep, sometimes face deep powder. Definitely a great start to the season. "I'll be back"
