Snow, snow, snow! We are definitely back to Myoko-style snowfalls. I measured 73cm on the trusty study plot boards this morning (trying to be more scientific, you know). Pretty dense below nice fluffy stuff on top, so it will be a bit of a slog on those steep climbs today.

Onpiste things should be great, and word from the patrol early on was that there aren't a lot of people out on the hill (tomorrow is the start of a three-day weekend, so that will change!). Out of bounds, be careful of the hard layer below the new snow; we need to go out for a dig, but just in cleaning around the house there is a pretty solid level of frozen wet snow down below the new that could cause the new snow to slide. Take your avy gear, even if you're just sneaking off from the lifts--too many people are out there unprepared (the locals are shaking their heads about this).

Now, after two hours of digging and writing this report, time for me to check it out in person!
