Day 63 Heavy but good

Overnight it seemed to me we had a wet snow rain mix ( at least that's what it looked like when I got up to have a pee in the middle of the night) but by the morning there wasn't much new snow. The report from the hill said 9 new cms but that was over the last 24 hours and there didn't seem to be much new over night.

Got to the hill and it was ok with a bit of new snow. Because of the suspicion of rain low down we hit the new side and went high. Had a couple of real nice runs through Surprise which had been filled in ok then decided to hike Knot chutes. Two runs through knot showed that it was good new powder but the bottom was a bit scrappy.

After yesterday tried Anaconda quite a few times and found it was as good as I thought it would be. As always exited through Bootleg and the creek to the right of Gilmar and it was all good with the snow a bit heavy at the bottom.

In the afternoon had a County Line day hitting Stag Leap, Cougar Glades, Decline/Window chutes ( drop off only 5 ft) Decline, The Brain twice, etc. Withe yesterday's and the fresh snow it was all pretty acceptable and in many places untracked.

Finished the day with a spectacular drop of the chute one beyond Lone Fir ( very steep and great fun) then a traverse across Easter to Spinal Tap and a run through the creek bed to finish - awesome.
