Wow bonus powder day. I went up to Fortune right after work and it was snowing a little. By 4pm though it was a white out and would snow heavy for over three hours dropping 10cms. Every run was refreshed. We may be at peak snow pack. This may have been my best night ski in a long while. Conditions we perfect, everything was open and zero crowds. Hero snow, enough said.
You better have googles.
Hegg was open till 7pm
Tree paths/runs between Sparks and Bud Clark

This may have been a mistake. Chilly Poutine!
Another beautiful day at Camp Fortune. Full sun, zero wind and a temperature around -5c. Conditions are loose granular over a hard base. Fortune has done a great job of dealing with the rain then flash freeze of last Sunday. The groomers are fast and smooth. By the afternoon some on the steeper runs on Skyline were getting scrapped down to the base but the Valley and the Meech trails were still very natural and softish. The non-groomed runs and glades are still closed and the snow is cement like. We either need a warm up or more snow, lets hope for both. The next two weeks will be perfect for March break though as the snow pack is still impressive. Ski on!
