We put in an order for sunshine and it has been delivered this morning. Beautiful sunny day here with about 20cm of fresh on top of yesterdays fall, it is going to be an amazing day on the slopes.

It snowed most of the day yesterday getting heavy at times and eased after dark. So will be plenty of fresh tracks up for grabs today. The base has hit the 400cm mark again, which is terrific with just one more day to go until March!
Had a bunch of people glowing when they came down from the mountain yesterday saying it was the best day riding they had ever had. Today may be even a touch better with the great visibility.

On a down note another boarder was lost in the backcountry two days ago and is yet to be found. The rescue efforts have been hindered by the heavy snow, and are going to make it very hard to find any tracks now. Will have been two very cold hard nights in the elements. We are hoping the clear weather today will assist and he can be found but not looking great unfortunately.

So apologies for the late reports the last few days have been assisting with some of the rescue attempts.

The outlook is pretty good with a bit of snow and a bit of sun, though more dry than things falling from the sky I think for the time being. Temperatures are looking a bit warmer too.
