    Patrol was pretty short staffed and busy Thursday. I didn't hear much about the dive, but the west will be worth the wait for the people who get through first when it open back up.

    It was hammering all day at the lake yesterday. It was great all over. So soft everywhere with all the new snow since Thursday. Should be great today

    Lake was indeed great today. Except for a delayed opening (ice?) on both the gondola and Top of the world - This meant everyone was lined up for the quad, and then hiked up to the Poma. Both Whitehorn and Paradise were fantastic, but it felt like there had been rain lower down.
    - This was at 9:00 am. I was about halfway to the front of the line.

    Snow at Marmot was great although a bit wind effected in places. The only ones not having a good day were the Avi team. Charlie's slide back to the November layer, the Peak did the same. Surprising results on terrain which has been open and ski compacted. Interesting snow out there inbounds as well as out.

    At KH we had a very surprising result. Most of Fuez bowl slid as a result of a remote trigger from heli bombing Ozone. All the way from White wall to tower 10. Huge chunks of avie debris. went all the way to the trees which are way down the flats.

    Feuz bowl sliding like that, scary that much a heavily skier compacted area coud go that big. You guys are having quite the cycle down there right now. Only a matter of time before things kick into to gear up here. Bottom 40 - 65 cm of snowpack is total B.S. in the areas around Smithers.

    However, some seriously sweet snow pretty much evrywhere. Ok freezing levels r pushing it further up the mtn. And yes of my 6 seasons on sleds, this has produced the biggest slides. Ironicly not the biggest crowns but the biggest debri and run outs. Not by shit tons, but bigger. I asked about 1 of the run outs and and it was said they havent seen it go that big. And of the 4 start zones that feed it, only 2 went. And the smallest 2! So the big 2 r still sitting there waiting ... there is alot to b learned from all this ...

    I was lucky to get out this morning. Lots of snow, and fun skiing well into the afternoon.

    I'm heading up your way Thursday afternoon/evening, thinking to maybe hit Fernie Friday, and meeting my girlfriend on Saturday in Calgary (she's flying in from the East Coast). Our general plan is to stay at Kicking Horse Saturday night, ski there Sunday, and then stay in Banff the rest of the week (she flies out of Calgary Saturday evening), with a day in each of Banff and Yoho National Parks (involving some relatively gentle touring) and the remaining days between Lake Louise and SSV. We've got lodging booked Saturday through Friday and KH tickets bought for Sunday but haven't picked up Banff-area tickets yet (and I'm not committed to Fernie, I'm just hoping to break up the drive rather than making it a very long day on the road Friday).

    Any suggestions for don't-miss stuff appreciated, especially if it's not in the usual online guidebooks. I'd particularly be interested in suggestions on places to ski in the national parks, with an eye towards relatively gentle terrain and good views. Also, suggestions on cheap lodging near Fernie would be appreciated; I don't have enough space to fit gear and myself in the XTerra, so sleeping in the car is out, but anything with indoor plumbing and a roof sounds pretty good.

    Thanks,
    Kevin
