Another monster snow fall, some bearings on my blower weren't up to the task.

Drifts of 1.5m in numerous places.

The low points were 50cm deep and I am being very conservative in calling it 60cm and that was after a lot of snow clearing yesterday. Plenty of wind came with it.

It was supposed to be lightening up but is still puking here.

At Hodaigi riding 55cm of pow off the number 9 lift.

Forecast is for more, more, more...
