oh fuck you hemlock

Quote:
To all our valued guests,
It would seem the the impossible has happened... TOO MUCH SNOW!!
Since Sunday evening Hemlock has received over 6 ft of snow and has caused multiple tree and power lines to come down and cover Hemlock Valley Road.
As of 6:30pm tonight BC Hydro has still not been able to gain access to the problem areas because of the low hanging lines and has not been able to give us an accurate time for re-gererizing the lines. The road is closed in both directions as the repair continues.
Given the area of the downed power lines and Emil Anderson cannot clear the road of the multiple downed trees until BC Hydro resolves the power line issues, this has resulted in the upper portion of Hemlock Valley Rd unserviceable at this current point.

Hemlock Resort feels with utmost certainty that due to the circumstances and extreme avalanche conditions we will not be able to comfortably service our guests tomorrow as planned and will have to close for Thursday Dec.20th.

Ending on a positive note we will be open Friday at 9am to what ever capacity is safe for everyone. The snow is amazing and the longterm forecast is calling for a cold wonderful Christmas.

Thank you for your understanding,

You better believe it y'all.

Who all's planning on going up to Cypress?

We should make a big unruly pack?

That is some crazy news to hear about hemlock having to stay shut down and baker shutting down. Should be epic once this storm settles a bit!

Cypress and Seymour it is!

Just about to go pick up my buddy and head to cypress, and the website is saying rain/snow mix?!

"The freezing level has spiked this morning and we expect the precipitation may turn to light rain this morning - keep in touch for updates. "

That's weird, was up there from about 7 (wed night we talking) and thought it was pretty good for Seymour. Damn windy and sleeting but snow was ok. Slow, but just gotta stick to the steeper stuff. Unicorn was good, probably best i've ridden it at night. Freshies and hits galore. Peeps I was with couldn't see very well, but had amber lenses and I ride with clears at night so... Seymour is small too, so I guess I can guess where stuff is to a point lol

Shame to hear freezing level is rising. Was enjoying the cold and semi-real snow for the minute

Weird, that's still not reflected on snow-forecast.com or on the Grouse website (which is updated hourly). The Seymour website last I looked was updated for 11:30 am and still shows -1c.

Maybe the folks at Cypress just don't want anyone else showing up. Keep it all for themselves...

Not too sure. I'm running the superfeet red's and am super happy with them! MEC is the cheapest place i've found them, unless you have a WB seasons pass, and get them for 20% off on the mountain.
