If you can't say anything nice...

...don't say anything at all. So here's the stats for today without commentary.

More snow, less people please

Well it's not really that we have too many people but rather that they are all crowded on to the same few intermediate runs. Once we get more snow which means more terrain open the people can spread out and more importantly I can get into the trees where they aren't.

Best run of the day, in fact the only half decent run of the day, was this one straight down under the Storm Peak Express chair.

Vagabond was death cookies all the way and Heavenly was icy and not much better, and even Sunset which only opened today was disappointing.

I ran into a couple of my wife's friends Louise and Pat in the gondola today. They were out on their telemark skis. I skied a couple of runs with them before spending some time on the rocky, shrubby bumps of Cyclone and Tornado.

Well hello powder

I went out early only because Marie was heading out early. There was perhaps two inches of fresh on the ground down at valley level and I hadn't checked the report so I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived at the top of the gondola to find eight inches of fresh powder.

I got some great freshies first up under the Four Points chair followed by more to skiers left and right of Buddies, to skiers right on lower Rainbow and then twice on Whiteout which had barely been touched. Heavenly was very dust on crust on the way home but by then I was so happy to be back in the powder I didn't care!

I'm kicking myself for not taking the video camera - I assumed there would be nothing worth filming today!
