Rule of the Sun
Conditions today were highly dependent on exposure to the sun. Shady
areas tended to be crispy and well broiled spots were often goopy.
However if you could find a nice medium raw area, it was just right.
For those partial to groomed runs here were lots of nice groomed ones
to choose from. However those of us who prefer off piste stuff had to
look a little harder for those areas tended more towards the extremes
of hard or sloppy.
Still there was lots of stuff out there for everyone to have fun with
and coverage remains very good for this close to the end of the season.
The Powder, Peddle, Paddle goes this weekend, so any teams that want
to participate need to get their entries in soon. Also if there are
any folks out there owed money by Resorts of the Canadian Rockies, I
understand that you only have until May 4th to file the necessary
forms if you hope to collect any of it. Apparently not all creditors
are aware that this condition exists.
At four P.M. it is 12 C at the house with a partially cloudy sky.
The Boom liftie was hard pressed to keep up with the crowds.
Timber Bowl from the bottom of the White Pass lift.
Bear looks pretty decent for the second half of April in a crummy year.
Currie from 123. The surface was a bit hard and lumpy, but a little
bit of loose snow helped.
The center of Currie was mushy but still okay.
