Ziggy: I found some of the sweetest slopes of the season out of bounds.
Are you going to tell us where it is? Probably not.:(

Cover and weather were curate's egg today. First up was frozen monochrome with a good number of ravens circling for some reason. Things improved. I found some of the sweetest slopes of the season out of bounds.

Hully: Been groomed on a semi regular basis for years.
I must've only skied it on powder days (or bumps/rut days)

Slalom: I notice that they tend to rotate the grooming around Summit and International.
Which is good. You don't want that area to be a golf course. Nice mix of groomed, little bumps, bigger bumps is good.

Scott No Mates Ver 1.1: I thought that was a misprint when I read that they'd groomed the Y's

Ziggy: This morning on the south side it was bullet proof first up and gradually softened to a very tolerable cream. Vis was the curate's egg. The ridge peeped into sunlight from time to time and occasionally the slopes were in luminous fog. Very atmospheric. I skied from Summit to Ruined and had to set a compass bearing. Pulled the pin at lunchtime after a shot out of bounds; the snow was soft, pillowed and sticky. Yuk.
Yeah I was hoping for a bit more cloud free today but it wasn't to be. Had to do Ruined by Braille at one stage. Few laps of Zipper, Skyline and AprŤs early on. Even got a couple down a groomed Y's. Rest of the day between Scotts and Towers.

Visibility went between fair & poor today with unfortunately more of the latter. Didnít get on mountain until 12. The Yís were chopped and snow around Apres was heavy. Summit reasonable, along with Sun Valley. The snow fence at the top of Scottís was almost completely buried. 2 weeks ago you could still see half of it. Saw a first today.........guy skiing down a run having a full on conversation on his phone. Just ski ya pelican. Oh, and had a chairlift ride with Chris & Bec Judd.

Slide Sideways: What's the go with roping off area at rapunzels? Makes an easy traverse to lakeside on a snowboard a PIA

Slide Sideways: Can't come off towers chair and take the highest line under quartz. Have to go 150m or so down rapunzels then hard hard right over to lakeside. Could be a caution as so much snow fallen? I've never seen it there before
Yeah neither have I. Used to love the hard left off the chair and dropping down off the rocks and bumps around Quartz Ridge.
