It was magnificently sunny for most of the day, although a light fog blew in late in the day. The snow was kind of hard-packed, although not as bad as Seymour when it hasn't snowed in a while.

I did a half-dozen runs or so off the Orange chair, including the Gully, which for the first time I was...
