The snow report advertised 15cm in 24hrs. On my first run down Captain Jack’s it felt (though it could have been my legs) like only 5cm of fluff on top of the skied-out base. But the temperature was climbing quickly, a stiff wind was blowing from the south, and the snow seemed to consolidate into consistent, smooth, carvable powder within a run or two. It was another quiet early season day, untracked lines till noon (saving my energy), still finding plenty of knee deep turns in protected lower glades. It’s now dumping again, with 10-15cm forecast overnight, so tomorrow should be another good one.
