    Observing a new kind of sublimation process at DP where snow passes directly into mud, bypassing the water phase.
    MTB ride to Precipice was hour-in-the-shower afterwards kind of messy. Also went skinning up to Dead Timber Hill this morning without any need for skins - or even pattern bases.

    A bit more rain :(. Hoping for some sun please:thumbs:
    Set up camp now near Feathertop and hoping to get a couple of runs.
    All this rain has ruined the snow below 1400-1500m.

    That was amazing. The way it just sucked all that moisture down from up north.
