Slow and steady was the order of yesterday and we woke to a bluebird sky today; though the snow didn't continue overnight enough has accumulated to make conditions up on Happo pretty sweet...some nice powder stashes as well as decent fresh tracks to be had on the runs, good groomers and lots of smiles.

More snow is forecast this evening with possible warming and precipitation next week so no doubt tomorrow will be pretty hectic as everyone has been eager to get their first taste of this years goodies.
