Who's up on Thursday? I'm planning to ride Blackcomb and will be up there by 8:30. Riding solo now so would like a partner with all this snow. I have avy gear.

First tracks down pakalolo this morning, it was amazing...

... until 5 other guys followed me down.


A dud was dropped into 7th today, so it took a while to open, and the mountain is pretty sketch to open spanky's/glacier because of avalanche risk.

Spanky's opened today, and Blackcomb Glacier was closed...

Better get up here before Christmas rush starts.

Thats gotta be your favourite stash eh. I know this from you posting pretty much those exact words post every storm. Thats is a sweet zone.

If I ever roll up on it untracked I`ll be sure to yell "hahahh Todd I am tracking out your line"

You`ll have two less powder hounds to fight for fresh tracks till New Years. Stinky_rider and I are in Montreal for a few days then Ontario. Atleast we`ll get to ski Jay Peak tomorrow.

This is for brian and maya

It's been snowing a lot. On December 19th, patrol managed to get GE open despite high-winds. Hats off to patrol for an outstanding job. We took advantage

Kind of poor light and crummy conditions for shots so apologies for the quality. Was blowing pretty hard and snowing tons.

My brother Chai takes his first run on his first day of the season in Diamond Bowl



Poz hits Ruby Bowl





Side trip to Pakalolo for variety - Dave from Tahoe drops in.



Winds SE 60 - 80kmh with 15- 20cms during day and a bit more expected overnight - and Whistler never opened alpine that day.

Whistler opened its alpine today but not without some waiting. Lots of AC going on and bombs exploding. Could see why patrol was concerned as small slides ran off skicuts on Boomer while we were waiting for the chairs to open. After a long cold wait, we were off to the races and did lap after lap in Harmony.

It was a bit ridiculous. There was untracked snow every run. I think a lot of people must have headed to Peak as Harmony wasn't bad at all.

Jameson in Robertsons



It started snowing again as Jon heads right at me in Robertsons
