1/28/17 Whistler Blackcomb

Didn't warm up enough to mess anything up today. The bottom is soft but friendly. Saw a skier fall near the top
Of Cougar Chutes and he narrowly missed 2 trees at high speed and eventually stopped near the bottom. Yes - steep is steep, and the steeps are not very accommodating right now. Pretty good snow for turning - but if you fall and don't stop quick....

Peak Chair closed in morning for high wind and never reopened. At least one person was happy, and hiked up at the end of the day and skied the freshly groomed Peak to Creek all by himself😄😄😄😄😄😄😄😄

Snow forecast looking up a bit, but I'm still not convinced.
