i was out there last week, did a week at kicking horse, 25th and 26th were alright, top of mountain/hikes (stairway to heaven and T2) were pretty good, qausi boot deep snow in the feuz and crystal bowls, beyond that the mountain was tracked out and we had to hike to get anything good. Friday the 1st was the best, got about 20cms at the base, probably double that up top, boot to knee deep all day, was great! back in toronto now, absolutely sucks ass!
No worries, I'm back there this Friday. So if you're heading up later than that, just check back at this thread.
Without giving too much away online, most people get off the chairs and head down a run. If you're willing to traverse across a little further than others, or walk for a couple minutes off the platter, paradise, ptarmigan chairs...
The best goods are in gladed areas a little off the beaten path. Nothing crazy for steepness, although the ultimate steeps usually isn't heavily used. They were also closed all weekend so I'm expecting them to be good still on Friday.
Heading to Louise tomorrow am for the first time this year. We should meet up.
It certainly will be. I will be at Temple Lodge at 11:30--11:45 looking for you. I am bald with a blue AK jacket on, carrying a bright green/yellow helmet.
Which lodge is Temple Lodge? The one at the base or halfway up?
Temple is the one on the back side, between the base of the paradise chair and the ptarmigan and larch chairs. If you head up top of the world and head down the back, you can't miss it!
In the meantime, if you see a guy in yellow pants, white maple leaf camo jacket, riding an ironing board, that's me!!!
Torpedo coming with or are you riding solo tomorrow?!? I'm hoping for some park tips from Casual tomorrow. Also planning on riding eagle ridge 3 for a bit to practice for next weeks big mountain competition!
Those rocks/cliffs at the top of the peak on ER3 are real fun! Ranging from about a 4 ft drop to a 15 foot drop if you're nuts enough to go off the tombstone!

See you there. Nope. Torpedo is a no-show. I will be riding with a buddy Todd and his ladyfriend. Another old friend is also going to be there. Sounds like a party for sure.
