Day 26 and a short report

The reasons for a short report are twofold. The main one is that the conditions haven't changed. No new snow, a cold bluebird day (-16) the base hard at 167 cms, the lower mountain still icey from last weeks rain and the upper mountain in ok condition but well skied over by the holiday crowds.

The old side was just the same with Boom and Sunny side nice, Boom ridge hard icey bumps and Linda's good at the top and very scratchy at the bottom. The new side was sunny with great packed powder in 1-2-3's, Highline Trees, Gun bowl etc. Anaconda which we looped several times is still in remarkably good shape with some untracked snow to be found if you are prepared to shave the trees pretty close. End of day down Skydive was just like yesterday, awesome at the top and what the patrol describes as "marginal" at the bottom.

The second reason for a short report is that it is Katie's birthday today ( happy 25th Katie) and to celebrate we drank a lot of beer in the Griz, followed by more beer in the pub plus a meal and and then more beer at the Hockey game, Riders beat the Nitros 5-2, go Riders go. End result we are all too wrecked to remember what we did on the hill - better luck tomorrow.
