Kh - dec.22

Bad- Terrible visibility on top in the morning. Plus they had to atop the gondola periodically to de ice.

Good - There is a light dusting of powder on everything. However everything is super soft and drops in from terminator are awesome. CPR ridge/ tower 18 to trees are also fun.

Another 5-10cm tonight and everything looks to be good for tomorrow.

As an aside, Selkirk condos are unbelievable.

^ Nice!

Nakiska had a light dusting yesterday morning too. Made for some great early morning runs on the groomers. Not many runs open, they STILL have mapmaker all closed for racer training. Enough cover under the gold chair and off to the right that I was able to take a few different lines and have some fun.

I think the cold kept the crowds away because I never had to wait in line. A nice quiet morning by myself on the slopes.

It was cold... damn cold. We (ARSENALFAN and myself) managed to spend all weekend in the "white room" despite the weather, large part in thanks to a sweet temperature inversion on the mountain... just awesome!

Sunshine? I heard the snow is great. Going to get into the dive tomorrow.

So many runs so little time.

Awesome pictures. That looks way better than opening day conditions.

Dec.23rd

KH got 12cm of new snow in the night. With the ski in/out condo situation we decided to delay revy trip for another time.

A local skier took us on a guided tour of the mountain. Did one chute drop past the traverse on CPR ridge and one on stair way to heaven backside. Unbelievable runs with powder every where.

In the afternoon we did another chute drop that is farthest on CPR. ( the two little trees on top.) way sketchier with ice for first part and rocks. It was slightly above our skill level until the opening where things opened up and turned soft. Terminator also opened in the afternoon. You can get fresh powder until end of the day in there due to late openings.

Fantastic trip with good friends is all you can ask for.

Now I will be stuck in edmonton for Christmas all of next week. Don't want to hear about fantastic conditions....

I'm trying desperately to find a room in Fernie later this week, so hopefully I'll have some great condition reports to piss you off with!
