Craig's Report - December 18, 1997

That's more like it!

In the feared forgotten Fernie tradition the forecast "chance of flurries" turned into something you could wallow in. I had to use my snowblower for the first time this year and while it is not my favorite chore, I wasn't complaining. There was hiking boot deep or better snow in the driveway and I am sure lots more farther up on the hill.

The hill is opening Saturday. Apparently they were going to open anyway, even if they had to download, but now that will not be necessary. The lower slopes will undoubtedly be thin, but the upper stuff might be pretty nice and who knows, maybe we will get some more "flurries".

At 10:00 AM it is partially cloudy and minus 3 C.
