So, now I'm sitting in Kalispell Airport in MT. I ended up making a day trip to Fernie on Wednesday. The whole day was pretty much a waste unfortunately.

It was raining in the parking lot when we showed up. But, luckily it was snowing HARD at the peak. Unfortunately, about 2 hours after catching my first chair winds picked up fast, knocking down trees (saw one come down waiting in the lift line) and knocking people over as well. So, they shut down all but two lifts on the mountain. The powder that was near the top soon was covered in rain and then quickly froze an hour later when a cold front came though turning the place into an icy chunky parking lot. Couple that with the high winds and we called it a day around 2pm.

I did have a blast in MT though.
