    We opened today with about 110 new. Hardest thing was trying to find terrain steep enough. Common when we get really big dumps.
    edit this morning:
    "terrain steep enough that wouldn't kill you or take hours of breaking trail to get to" I should have said. And, it was only advertised as 101cm new yesterday.

    Holy shit, Castle was amazing today!

    Report in the AM said about 20cm overnight and 40cm in 48 hours. Not only was it very deep but the snow had a little bit of density to it making turns extremely gratifying!

    The line at red was slow compared to a normal mid-week powder day ar castle, but not bad at all. I never timed it but maybe 10 minutes maximum wait... probably less.

    Blue chair line was a couple of minutes or less.

    I'm really interested in their Cat skiing (I've never been to Castle). How is Castle cat skiing on weeks with no snow fall? I'm thinking of heading down there for a day of cat skiing, but there isn't any snow forecasted for a while. Will there be enough snow to justify the price (~$400)?

    I have skied the Castle Cat but only on deep days. For pics and details check out my Unofficial Guide to Castle.

    Stop falling on every other turn!�� But yes, the blown in areas were quite nice.

    Sled shuttle laps for me today, sun poked out so hit the glacier until the clouds came back. Very good.

    Today the backside was great.

    Frontside was so-so up top, getting worse the further down you got. A few CMs of heavy fresh on refrozen crud. Groomers weren't bad, lowest meadowlark just wasn't fun.

    Cheers guys - managed to get out today, glad the backside is still skiing great but all the refrozen bumps and crud in the west bowl exit made for a hell of a ride.

    Fingers crossed that warm snap was only temporary!
