About a foot of snow for the first 1500m or so of Seventh Secret, rest of the trail is super though.

it IS possible that you are faster or slower than anybody else who is having at least as much if not more or less fun

I hope you meant to say 150M. Otherwise, 7th is completely buried.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

It was borderline snow at my house this morning which is significantly lower than the yellow gate. Wouldn't surprise me at all if there was snow on the switchbacks today.

the snowline was about 300ft up from the grouse parking lot so the lower trails must at least be slushy. the pow was awesome up there today though! if ya cant do one, do the other!

Was up there last night till about 10. Snow starts halfway to the second gate, and gets mildly deeper as you climb. There's a bare rut that you can ride all the way to Bobsled, then that's about it. I rode the dempsey Braemar entrance in to BP, up road, down Bobsled, then BP backwards, to lower executioner, to braemar/powerlines. Managed a decent ride and stayed out of the snow.
