Yesterday's riding at Tenjindaira was right up there with the best of the season. Cold, snow falling gently all day, light winds and the backcountry is really starting to open up.

More snow fell overnight and the only bummer is we have the sun out today which hasn't been in play for a couple of days now. No doubt the snowpack takes a backward step but if blue skies and lots of fresh snow are what you're into, today is the day.

Forecast wise, snow is expected today so hopefully things cloud over quickly. Saturday looks clear in the morning, snow showers in the afternoon and snow during the evening. Sunday looks quite similar to Saturday and Monday there is a big dump forecast.

Temps to remain cold on the mountain too! Not a bad way to close out February.
