March 15, 2009, Heather Ridge OMG Powder
« on: 03/16/09, 06:48 AM »

We made two runs off the back side, and one on front. About as deep as it gets round here - hard to breath and see when the face shots turn to head emersions! It just kept on comin' all day - at least 8 inches while we were out. We ski cut many surface sluffs and stuck to the trees as much as possible. A full on blizzard greeted us back at the car, then a long slow drive down from the pass, but all was good with the memory of an incredible day.

Cool.  You prolly skied over our lines from Saturday, which, I presume, were adequately covered.   Grin  We did four laps on the N side with an exit out Nason Creek and hitchhiked back to the car.  It was snowing like mad all day.
