    just heard second hand rumor that Whistler patrol never got their big shipment of avy control explosives yet (supposed to arrive later in the week maybe?) so might be forced to close the goat path etc with all the new snow

    ^^^^^
    just a rumor, clownshoe pipes in below

    Hmm well that sucks...I was just gonna post up to find out if anyone knows if they might be opening more terrain if they can get in there and do the control by this weekend. The alpine most certainly has enough snow by now!

    Given the forecast, and what's been falling, plus the high winds, the alpine will be closed up tighter than a nun's legs for quite some time.

    My legs are absolutely dead, but it looks like another day of storm skiing the pow pow today!

    WB's weather system is showing winds hit 150 km on the Peak and 120 at the Roundhouse at about 4 AM!

    Just waiting for the HN measurement, but looking at the Pig Alley data logger, it looks like we could pass 2 metre base today!!!!

    PS Patrol has lots of bombs, don't worry about that. We just can't get past the roundhouse to use them until the storm backs off...

    Avalanche hazard is through the roof right now. Please stay out of the avalanche closures!

    Go get some! It's fucking ON!

    For those lucky enough to be out there today, please take some pics.

    There isn't even any sign of below freezing temps here, let alone 40cm of fresh.

    You mean 21st - 22d? Or 28th - 29th? Groomers have been trying to put in the peak traverse already but conditions are uh difficult for them at present. As for Blackcomb, Horstman Hut is open and there's prep work going but there's no guarantees. American thanksgiving weekend is big for the mountains so they're trying but the long - range looks like a shit-ton more snow. Nice problem to have i guess

    Yeah, I was thinking about the American Thanksgiving weekend (26-29). I must admit I'm tempted and I've got no major family obligations!

    I'm tempted by this weekend? Any thoughts on what might be open? Worth a last minute flight in? Not sure I can swing it as no place to stay, but hey, gotta take advantage of this unemployment of mine... Hmm, I have an Alaska Air credit that needs to be used... Off to check the flights.

    So the snow was silly deep this morning in some parts. Boarders stuck everywhere, flailing, I took a good faceplant jumping a creek at bottom of green, got some laughs from the chair.
    Small trees I was skiing 2 days ago in Chunky's are just gone! Vanished!
    But the blowdown I've never seen so bad, huge trees collapsing everywhere, across cat tracks. I heard some local boosted a lip into one of the closed runs only to find a tree laying across. Something about a collapsed lung, sounded pretty bad. Vibes...

    A shame the freezing level spiked last night, I'll admit I was flailing like a newb at times this morning....I'll take this as a first day any time though.....200cm base before the weekend!
