We had a great day on Blackcomb today. Lots of fresh snow, light up high [HTML_REMOVED] heavy down low. Skiing Ruby bowl was simply terrific. Busier on the mountain than I thought it would be. Not super-busy, but still a pretty decent number of people.
Lee, were you up today? I thought I saw you at one point.
They just stated on the TV that it's looking good for tomorrows DH. Anyone confirm this?
I just don't trust the CTV Talking Heads when it comes to this.
Last night it rained all night in Whistler. It was raining when we went to bed, and it was still raining in the morning, when it thankfully stopped. It would have rained on the downhill course all night. Skiing out, the conditions down low were like a slurpy.
Like you, I saw on the TV that they were stripping the top layer off the downhill course. Taking off all the slush [HTML_REMOVED] leaving behind the harder base below. Seems a reasonable idea provided the weather's cool enough to harden that base, and not turn it into slush as well. The forecast is for below-zero at nights, and slightly above zero during the day. So it'll probably work out OK would be my guess.
