January 3rd, 2014, Whistler Side Country
« on: 01/03/14, 10:19 PM »

Drove up in the middle of the night because "fresh snow is only fresh once". Didn't disappoint! About 30 centimeters had fallen at higher elevations. It was wind affected and reactive. I kicked off many small slabs myself that didn't propagate. North facing glades were perfect (Stay home - I already got to them all.) Other areas were stiff and heavy and required more strength than touch.

Ski patrol must have had a blast as everything that ever slides - slid. More by ski cutting than anything else.

Lots of rocks still in the Alpine. Lots of danger in the trees. Keep your tips up!

Powder still holding up very well on northern exposures. Perfect bluebird day again. No lift lines!
