The day started out with a magnificent, golden sunrise among gathering dark clouds, and now it's just puking snow (didn't want me to get too poetic, did you?). Just in time to refill in some of the well-skied-out powder stashes around the area. But the snow was excellent all through the day yesterday, too, with about 20cm of fresh on top of a little but of sun-warmed snow from the 2nd.

Things are almost there for those venturing into the backcountry. A lot of the smaller brush is now buried, and most sapling-sized trees are bent at a pretty good angle. Another couple of good snowfalls and it will be a lot more fun both in the climbing up (choose your own course, not be directed by the brush) and the descent.

Too bad most people went home; looks like an excellent day of powder ahead!
