Yesterday was day one of the Deep Winter Photo Challenge at Whistler Blackcomb and DEEP it was. There were 25 cm’s of fresh champagne powder and with a temp of -8 at the peak it stayed that temperature all day. The Whistler gondola was down for the day so it was a bit hectic at the bottom of Creekside but once we uploaded there were no complaints. Although the high alpine didn’t open there was more then enough powder to have some fresh turns even as we were riding out at the day. Most of the day was spent deep in the trees shooting some secret spots where there were no tracks to be seen for miles.
