    Drive through turns during a road trip to the coast today. Thanks for the sand, P.G.; it was a blast. =D Conditions really were optimal...human and hound postholed moist sand provided a bit of aeration for great glide and slarvey jee essez. Great to have the river right there for post d/h-ing, soiled ski pressure washing.

    Wow, I never realized until now that Terrace and Shames are such low elevation ASL.

    I walked around up the praire and over above the O zone and that all appears to be smoke coming from the mill in Houston and funneling down pine creek instead of the bulkley valley

    The Californians I stay with rave about their sunsets and I can't quite bring myself to point out it has much to do with their putrid air although I am pretty sure they know that already.

    Ashman is the place to go if you are jonesing for pow around these parts btw. Local Crown Attorney skied most variations off the tippy top.

    We were up at Ashman today - approach and departure were sporting - but worth the trouble. Almost makes you want to get a sled to ski out there more often in high tide as opposed to the current low tide situation.

    In my three decades livin' in Rupert, the quality of the sunsets (on the rare days the sun did shine) got incrementally better year by year due to the increase in pollution pumped over across the pond from Asia. The year Pinotubo erupted was particularly notable as well.

    As for Ashman, nice stuff!

    I heard they are done logging out there so road
    will no longer be plowed all the way to Cable turnoff.

    That sucks - I was hoping they would be going out the cable all year. I do have daisyClick image for larger version.

    She is reliable enough - just with a 25 yo anything - you want another one along for backup if your doing a 40 km round trip. With the road plowed to the cable itís only a 4Km round trip to the cabin - well within my risk tolerances on a 1994 high performance sled such as daisy

    Word on the street is that the road will only be plowed to 18 km fro the rest of the winter. My source is the aforementioned crown attorney and I don't know where he is getting his intel from but that dude is pretty plugged in to anything to do with skiing so I am inclined to believe him.

    18 km on the Macdonald or the cable? 18 on the cable was about where they plowed to last week. Still drivable to the cabin - but that might (hopefully) change with the forecasted snow. There are a number of homesteads around MacDonald lake - I had thought they plowed to at least there every year - but who knows.

    Hopefully our learned friend is right in so far as they are plowing to the cable all year- although I hear he is probably concerning himself with more important endeavors at the moment. Here is hoping all is well on that front.

    He meant 18 km on McDonnell. What km is the last homestead on that road?

    50cms of comeback snowfall yesterday and another something like 20 overnight made Shames great again. Zero to hero.

    60cms snow depth at the base, prolly 120ish top of tee.

    The fattest of the fatties in the quiver r gonna get a workout today.

    Game on!
