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
I was up around 5 so it must have gotten better later. Did one run down Velvet gulley and then back to the top and down Unicorn thinking it would be better....not so much. I found the snow was super slow compared to the last week as well....

Yeah, it was def slower than last week. It did dump quite a bit early evening though too. Accumulated about 2cm on the car while we put our boots on

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

It was freakin nice tonight!!! I feel sorry for the dude that slammed his car straight into the Seymour shuttle bus on one of the hairpin turns near the top. When I drove by the emergency crew had one of those chainsaw looking grinder deals carving something off of the front of the bus with sparks flying Hope no one was hurt.....

Is it possible to have too much snow? At what point is it un-rideable. I would hate to get stuck in 1.5m of powder.

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
