Day 18 short report

And the reason it is a short report is that after a great day's powder skiing we drank loads at the Griz Bar and got totally blitzed then went out for a meal with our buddies Rob and Katie and got even worse.

Good day on the new side with temps at or about zero and snow on and off all day. Loops through 1-2-3's and Bootleg were good. As soon as they opened the low traverse out of Currie we hit Skydive ( very rough in the lower section) Easter ( good all the way) and Secret Chutes ( untracked powder top to bottom). We also ran in some good stuff in Mitchy chutes, Big Bang and a neat little line in Puff Trees.

In the afternoon we got word that Lone Fir was opening off a side step traverse in Currie then a hike up Corniche Chute. The word was right and we had two great trips through Lone Fir which is some of the steepest tree skiing on the hill and then into the avi damaged area of Easter bowl which was over the head powder all the way down.

Finished with a rip down Skydive which was predictably awesome from the top and surprisingly not too crap at the bottom on account of the fresh snow that had fallen during the day.

Too much beer following such a good day. Puking down snow as I type this and maybe 50 cms overnight now called for - who knows. Tomorrow could be a new definition of awesome.
