Continuing on from the bollocks February, March has so far been pox, all this snow is wearing my legs out!! Yesterday was deep, bloody deep. Rode at Kokusai, was always going to be a resort day, with so much new snow, only angles more than 35 degrees could give any decent speed, chest deep skintracks & a dirty big suncrust over a metre down, I wasn't comfortable to ride the backcountry. We've had a few warnings, yesterday wasn't a bad day to heed them.... Kokusai was blanketed, even inbounds, people floundering everywhere, a surfboard size Gentem Superfish or giant waisted planks were needed, you could drown just off the few thin groomed strips that provided people some degree of compacted area to generate speed & try and sneek a few turns into the bottomless fluff to the sides. As the current system began to clear about mid afternoon, I snuck off a short way into the sidecountry to enjoy some quiet, the least distance I've travelled into the sc / bc for some weeks. Leaving the planks as one, I bootpacked for fun. I'm normal height (185cm) & standing bolt upright pushing through. Dug a quick pit, sat on the small terrace I'd created, busted out the thermos & enjoying a hot drink as the snow clouds finally broke over the hills on a system that started over a week ago for us. At that altitude (approx 800m) & aspect (NW), somewhere over a metre had fallen, mostly on Thursday 03/03, between suncrust marked at base & snow surface was 125cm. Thankfully the snow seems to have briefly stopped & vis improved, hoping the new snows settled a bit & to get further out today.
