hoots_manuva Snow is forecast to begin this morning and continue throughout the day with 10-15 cm and freezing levels rising to 1300m. All terrain will open first thing this morning however, alpine terrain may close depending on the timing and intensity of the storm. Another moist pacific system is forecast to hit tomorrow with another 20 - 30 cm possible.

Thanks for sharing. Looks like you had an amazing trip.

I recently picked up an artifact 147 and found the same experience with pop and riding switch. Next trip I will be taking my artifact and flagship 158.

The bottom third was heavier for sure. Although it was raining in golden and wet snow at the base it was fluffy snow marjoity of the way up. They opened T1 around 1pm so it didn't get tracked much Sunday and T2 never opened Sunday. By the end of Sunday below T1 was mash potatoes. Lots of people were hiking over there from bowl over.

Not sure if they opened Feuz bowl either, but lots of tracks on redemption. Spent most of my time on CPR till they opened T1.

Not many were heading in to the trees mid mountain so lots of fresh in there.

as of end of day this past Friday, from about mid-Stoke chair and above the snow was still nice, light dry blower pow. But from mid-Stoke chair and down, the lower on the mountain you went, the more water saturated it was.

Same goes for the ripper chair side. The greely and north bowls were nice up until about the top of the ripper chair, from there the moisture is getting the better of the snow.

At the base, super duper packing snow with everything melting around the village. They did get another small dump yesterday up top, so as long as it stays cold and overcast the upper mountain should still be good times.
