anyone go to sunshine or louise today? I'm undecided on where to go tomorrow - the forecast varies every 5 minutes.

I just heard from my brother in law that Sunshine was fantastic today and should be better tomorrow. Sounded like there was powder to be had out there today, so I know where I'm going in the AM.

Sunshine was better today, snow was fairly wet though. Much better than last weekend.

Great day at louise. Still icy in lower front but rest of the trails were in good shape. Paradise was great and same with platter runs. Top of the world was decent. Don't go to latch trees... It's terrible in there now.

Crazy crash in the highway just outside Calgary, had to detour to Sarcee trail.

I was headed for Nakiska (friends stayed there overnight) but turned back when I heard about the accident. First time I've turned around this year!!!

They said it was pretty crap there.

Light fluff falling in town now, hope the forecast stays true, next weekend could be fantastic!

edit: I've been told to use up more vacation days so if it's good Friday I'll likely head for Louise.

We were right behind the the accident - it was about 7.55 and the roads were terrible - covered in ice. We were turned around by the police then we re-routed on highway 1A. Sunshine was good for the most part until the clouds came in after lunch, the top of goats eye was a complete whiteout. The snow was a bit sticky but I don't mind that. It's a shame the visibility was bad because the snow was nice up on Standish but the little rollers kept on appearing out of nowhere.

Looks like there's more snow coming this weekend, we could be in for a good spring (fingers crossed).

I hope this weekend is good. I was supposed to go to Sunshine yesterday but woke up puking sick at 3am and spent the day on the couch. Even had the board all waxed and sharpened and ready to go. Forecast looks like it could be great though!
