    Opening day at Red Mountain today. Just groomers in the sunshine on the bunny slope to ease into things, with the Red chair opening tomorrow.

    December weather pattern is certainly favoring some more than others. South Okanagan has been getting skunked hard from these system which sucks for Apex.

    North OK has been getting missed a bit as well. Precip has a distinct line on radar past few days. Kind of from Cherryville running NW towards sicamous (basically monashees). Anything east of that has been getting nuked!

    I have a lot of flexibility in the next week and was considering interior BCis there anywhere with a solid enough base to have good terrain open if it snows?

    On the upper mountain at Revelstoke this week some days there has been too much snow to open some of the terrain. Not that I was complaining

    Red is still low tide with limited terrain, but Ive been hearing about knee deep goodness at Whitewater.

    Revy seems like your best bet. After this past week's storms, the upper mountain is skiing great and you can skit the runs down to mid-station.

    Summit side of WH20 was primo skiing the last few days. Glory side not so much, death crust basically all the way up.

    So with the opening of Granite I am assuming a lot of the expert runs will remain closed, and reasonably so. But I have been touring up there and it is very skiable for people with the right ability so Im wondering how strict they are. It seems pretty lax, the stuff on Red has been technically closed and no cares. Will I get in trouble or piss patrol off or is it more of asoft closer ?
    Every resort is different and Im not sure if I can poach with impunity or not. Has potential to be excellent if so.

    You will note it's a Ski Area Boundary, not a closure in most places. Red does not have a closed boundary...

    Please respect that Grey is not open yet, as there is still avalanche mitigation work in progress, as well as snowmobiles and workers setting up.

    What he said. Not quite powder skiing, but soft, smooth and supportive snow, great coverage, zero crowds, and fresh lines all day made for a sweet opening.

    Yeah that was awesome.
    Very few people smooth powder everywhere. Slight surface crust, but irrelevant really, you could power right through it.
    I liked the vague boundary vs closed policy. Great times.

    Sneaky deep day at silver star. 80kmhr winds plus 18cm over night was money.

    Heading to Nelson tomorrow for a bootfitting and ski Whitewater Sunday. Anywhere in town do discount lift tickets? Still not a bad deal with the exchange rate.

    Touring in the Southern Valhallas yesterday. Filling in nicely, easy travel, smooth turns, and manageable stability.

    Had a look at the access to Flat Creek in Glacier National Park this morning. Turned round because there is still a big gap in the ice under the rail bridge. Had fun up Loop Brook instead.
