Did the "Musical Bumps" tour from Whistler Ski Area all the way to the top of Cowboy Ridge beyond Singing Pass. Traversed in strong winds on hard windpack (without skins) all the way from the top of the Whistler Peak chair past Piccolo and on to the Flute, finally climbing with skins up Flute. The wind died on the top of the Flute and hardly blew again the rest of the day. More hardpack down Flute and up Oboe, but then the best run of the day dropping the galdes into Singing Pass in 12" inches of good stuff. Climbed up onto Cowboy Ridge and got another great run back. Puffed back up Oboe and got still another great run down the north side. Long traverse over Flute shoulder and back to the lifts. Got one more chairlift ride before closing.

Lots of company and lots of tracks but still plenty of good skiing in the area. Stability was excellent.
