Heard Seymour is ok kinda. Hollyburn not enough snow yet I would guess. Avy conditions were pretty sketchy a few days ago.

Forecast not looking great here, heading for interior pretty quick.

Hollyburn was great this weekend. Snow pack is a bit funny with a really unstable layer down around 30cms deep, so keeping to more gentle gladed areas was the call. West side was a bit to sketchy to drop into so gave it a pass.  Stuck to the frontside laps which was good times.

Was this on a board or skis?

skis.  A few people do the split board thing but not many.

Nice, my weekends are basically all booked with other ski things for the next month, but after that I really need to find some partners and check it out.
