Woke this morning to around 5 cms of the real deal fluffy. With powder this light there's no need to shovel, so I put my pet elephant on car-park duty and one sneeze blew it all away. Unable to even make a snow ball to throw at the kids next door on their way to school I resorted to rolling one of said elephants dung-balls in the super light snow but thankfully missed as I remembered their Dad drives a Toyota Crown with tinted windows and sports a punch-perm and sunglasses all year round.

Regardless of how different your morning was from mine the rest of the day should really be spent in a similar fashion of enjoying open runs, no crowds, no lift lines and some fantastic powder. Snowing on top so visibility is a bit average but no wind and all the lifts are running so get up there
and dig deep in everything that couldn't be touched yesterday.

Snow and real cold temperatures forecast through the weekend = stoke.

Avalanche Danger Scale and Advisory:

Below Tree Line: Moderate

Tree Line: Condsiderable

Alpine: High

High amounts of steady wind and snow Tuesday night has increased the likelyhood of natural and skier triggered avalanches. Wind transport of snow (cornices and snow drifts) is present and frequent in both south and north faces. Be aware that even on-resort terrain might be prone to avalanches on steeper and open lee-ward faces. Expect sluffing on steeper terrain and avoid passing under chutes/avalanche paths.
