It's a beautiful day in more than one day in Myoko: perfect blue skies, lots of fresh snow, no wind, and lots of happy people on the hills. A great holiday ski day.

Also great in the follow-up to yesterday's report. A helicopter picked up the lost snowboarder this morning after two nights out on the mountain—uninjured after tumbling down a super-steep slope, no frostbite and in good shape. He was found just 100 meters from the search spot yesterday, with 11 people calling out and no reply coming after the mid-morning.

So we're all super-happy today. But, again, it's a great lesson in the risks of going off the courses without good knowledge, gear and shared information. If the helicopter couldn't have flown today, that would be the end of the official search (the family would have to fund any further efforts).

Please have fun, please push your limits, please be sure to be safe and come back.
