What a great day of boarding! Thanks Arsenalfan for riding with us today, it was a lot of fun and we will definately have to do it again. It was nice to meet you too casual. Poutanen and I always think it is fun to meet forum members. Hope to see you guys on the hills again soon. For those of you heading out tomorrow have fun!!

Canadian Rockies Condition reports

Well LL was a gong show. busier than last weekend! Crusty hardback with some blown powder in spots. DB run off top of the world backside is still soft, chute off platter is still soft and enjoyable.

Had a tough day and only realized that my bindings were loose with little more than hour to go.... Got control back after that... So retarded.

I went to castle today it was pretty decent until the temps warmed up and it turned pretty mash potato.

Going to LL tomorrow, i guess it will ride park and try to get better at spins.

Louise was nuts on saturday, so tracked out and so busy! Found some nice stuff up on larch and in some areas off paradise on the front that poutanen showed me... at the end of the day I realized they had an airbag in the park an I missed out

Spent the weekend at castle - what a sick mountain. Yeah the lifts are a joke - but that doesn't matter. I took your advice and stuck north though the morning. At first there was a thin crust but the sun quickly melted that. Spent the afternoon in the chutes and coming down giggle ridge which was sick and still nice and soft.

As the weekend went on the snow was turning to corn on the main mountain so we spent a lot of time hitting the tree's on Haig - which were largely untracked in parts.

Going to keep an eye on the dump reports because I'm in love.

If reports hold true I'll take Thursday or Friday off.
