Monster Storm!

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. There’s lots of forecasts, prognostications, and Nostradamifications out there, but I’m going with 2 to 3 feet of new snow by Thursday! I got to take epic runs today with my Toronto friends Eire, Erieann, and Marie. The snow was creamy and dreamy and falling steadily. Upper FIS was soft moguls with plenty o’ pow and Playground was carvin-a-licious. Shout out to Rena from Patrol for some advice on ski bindings.

BTW – 8 INCHES OF NEW SNOW IN THE PAST 12 HOURS!!!!!!!!

Glade skiing on Sterling

What is better than a powder day? One right after another! We received 9 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours and 16 inches in the past week. I had a wonderful time today playing in all the fresh new snow. The conditions just kept getting better as the snow continued to fall all day long. I found many fresh lines on Sterling and Madonna. The great thing is that they will all be fresh again tomorrow. The 24 hour forecast is calling for periods of snow with up to 5 inches of accumulation possible. We could see another 7 inches of new snow by Sunday
