I'm glad I didn't report first thing in the morning as I would have had to write things like, "An inauspicious start to the season" (even though I'm totally not superstitious) because things are looking, well, OK. There is a little rain falling from time to time, but it's meant a series of spectacular rainbows right over the mountains. The wind was howling like mad during the night and in the early morning, but the Sky Cable gondola at Akakan is running just fine. And there's still plenty of snow on the ground, so all in all it's not a bad early first day of the season! If my new boots arrive, I might get out there, too (I'd prefer to ski cold powder, but I'm a gearhead, too....gotta try the new toys).
