Day 106 I never thought this would happen

And what I thought would never happen was that I have actually run out of things to say about skiing powder in Fernie. Having spent the last 5 days trying to find different ways of describing trashing up the powder that has just been puking down I now have to run up the white flag and admit defeat, there is nothing new to say about today that I haven't said over the last 5 days.

Yet again it snowed over night - 18 cms of fresh new powder.
Yet again on the way to the hill the temps were low enough to keep the snow in great shape - we had -3 at the base and colder on top.
Yet again the base and total snowfall increased - 405 cms and 1007 cms respectively
Yet again it warmed during the day but the snow stayed in great shape if a little heavy at the bottom by the ened of the day.
Yet again we went to the New Side - the Old Side was mostly closed so we just had that much more terrain on the New.
Yet again Polar peak was closed due to the socked in conditions.
Yet again it snowed - not quite all day and not quite as hard as it has but still pretty impressive.
Yet again we had rolling openings - first White Pass then Surprise Trees, Anaconda, Bootleg Glades, and finally Currie bowl at the low traverse all the way across to the big three.
Yet again everywhere we went it was deep powder up to the knee and untracked snow to be had if you cut things close to the trees.
Yet again we had awesome skiing - all the usual suspects, Sykdive, Decline, Window Chutes, Secret chutes, Spinal Tap, Cougar Glades, Stag Leap, Toms run, Mitchy Chutes, Lift Line etc etc and all awesome powder.
Yet again we finished with a rip down Skydive which was still great powder

As I said nothing new to say but oh what an awesome day. Still no Polar Peak but still hoping for tomorrow. Almost hope that conditions change so I have something original to write but not really that worried.
