    I was going to post something like this then wondered if maybe SD's Dad had something more than age that was looming? In any case I hope he gets awesome conditions for their trip.

    It seems like a lifetime ago that I last skied with my Dad who got us into the sport. So glad he did.

    Looks like the hose will be back on in a major way this week, enjoy, all those who can! Lee, looking forward to your continued shots this season, both in low and high tides.

    Was shocked to see the low snow. Seems the forecast this week will sort that out.

    Taking my 67 year old father, night be his last ski year so hopefully he can get some great conditions.
    Nice!!! Such a cool thing to be able to ski with your parents

    14cms new already. Pig Alley weather station (which is low) is showing 14.1cms new with freezing levels nice and steady

    that's awesome.

    WE are from Scotland and been doing our yearly Spring trip for 10 days in AltaBird but this trip is shorter at 6 days skiing as 10 is far too long now.

    No as far as I am aware he is healthy, golfs all the time weather allowing.

    My dads side of the family just liked skiing so that got me into it when I was 2! still my favourite thing to do!

    Whistler conditions 18-19

    Getting better out there! I don't think it could have been snowing any harder this morning - Whistler of yore pukage. Ditches etc filling in but still a long ways before im tree skiing without death wish.

    Some touchy slabs in the alpine. I kicked off a good one on shale slope but kept on charging - for that AK bro feeling. Surprise held up really well for some reason. I think the sketchy traverse did the trick.

    I'm pondering a whistler visit this weekend, think it's worth the drive? Any rumors on how much more terrain will be available Sunday?

    Ok. Welp, it puked hard all day. Got pretty deep in places. Below catskinner chair you could easily find chest deep turns, exploding over the head. Pretty gusty on ridges. They managed to open crystal chair tho.

    Wet snow in the village. Itís now possible to ski out to lot 6 etc.

    By the end of this storm cycle Iím thinking everything will be back to Ďnormalí for this time of year.

    Saw that Crystal opened... curious what coverage in the trees will be like by the weekend. Will be my first day of the season, may as well blow up my knees on barely covered stumps and rocks.

    Still thin under chair etc but if these storms pan out we could see maybe another meter in there through the weekend. I'd go.

    Personally, I'd bring the beaters, but then I've had some monumental core shots with this kind of coverage in that past (and I would prefer to just ski and not think/care about my skis hitting rock). They need another meter (as xyz said).

    edit: if they get 40cm overnight then ignore the above.

    Looks like snow stake cam shows snow stake completely buried. Well, in another hour it will be. Currently at 45cms. Insane.

    Those driving from Van may want to leave extra early.

    Unusually enormous and much needed dump for Whistler.

    Wish the folks who said "don't worry, it'll snow, it always does" were right.
    Bump 🙂
