The Thar area on the Coquihalla is mediocre at best right now unless you are going for the north coulies. Shoveled out many of the switchbacks on the SW skintrack but shes still pretty ugly for those without skinny sticks. Mostly hard to soft windslab on the north facing slopes between Nak and Yak. Exit chute to falls lake is le horrible having been side slipped many many times. Recommend checking out one of the other exit chutes on your way out. Really you should just pass this one up until more snow falls.

"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."
