We left Farnham only to return the next day to join our friends coming in from Calgary to farm the new snow that had fallen. They were training for the skimo race season in Europe so we only ended up skiing with them briefly before they were lapping us on the skin track. Snow was certainly better then before but the wind had made it a little on the thick side. Small crowns below ridge top on the cleaver. We were going to stay till Tuesday, but it began to snow monday night while we were making dinner. As significant snowfall hadn't been forecasted we began to fear the forecast we were going off was incorrect. Rather then risk being trapped by an avalanche closing off the road we bailed into the dark white abyss back to the car. Turns out everything was fine as friends went up on Tuesday finding blower snow. Better safe then sorry though. Farnham should be accessible with chains and 4x4 for as long as this high pressure lasts. Expect to explore away from the main glacier to find fresh snow though as I am sure it is tracked to shreds now.
"As we all know, the true driving force behind every early morning wake up is not necessarily safety, but the overpowering drive to be sitting on a patio by 1 pm, intoxicated, and spraying loudly about the morning's adventure."
