Today was a little more leisurely than yesterday, sitting in the room constantly refreshing the parks website waiting for the avalanche bulletin and permit openings. Like kids at Christmas we eagerly looked at the computer and…… half the permit areas were open. Game on!
After much discussion we headed out to an area congested with trees in hopes of finding deep snow protected from wind. On the skin up tree bombs were hammering upon us. Every creak and crack caused a mass scatter to shelter. As we climbed higher the snow quality improved as did our spirits. What do you do on days where you are not sure about stability? Take photos on the pillows.
After hitting what we though was the best run thus far we headed back up for another dose of powder therapy. It is like a disease that you can’t cure. After yesterday’s light fitness walk we needed to put in some work. We managed almost 1200m of skiing today.
What will tomorrow bring? Not sure but it is dumping outside and we have a few more Powder Gangsters heading up to join us for the rest of the week. Fingers crossed for stability and more snow.
