Unofficial Blackcomb Report | Perfect Chalk & Pillows

Blackcomb Pillows

 

CONDITIONS AT BLACKCOMB TODAY:

- Fast, fun, spongy/chalky, responsive snow up high

- Some great soft powder left in spots

- Untouched pillows in many secret places

- Hard, scratchy skied up snow down low

- Bottom Line = Damn good skiing at Blackcomb today, especially considering it’s only December 9th.

Ruby Bowl was top notch today

WHERE WAS BEST TODAY:

- Ruby Bowl was skiing amazingly top to bottom.  Powder and pillow poppers up high.  Chalky/spongy crazy fun and fast snow in the middle and down low.  Great winter snow.

- Diamond Bowl was chalky/spongy goodness top to bottom

- Chainsaw Ridge was chalky, responsive, and a bit puckering.  Some chutes with mandatory airs and a crazy Euro who tried to kill himself and Trevor by doing a 200 vertical foot tomahawk down the chute while Trev was in it.  Watch out for him.

- General great skiing conditions from the bottom of Glacier Express to the top.

CROWD FACTOR:

- There’s no one up here right now.  Today was a sunday, near the holidays, and we never waited in line once.

Glacier Express on Blackcomb

OVERALL:

- It was simply a great day on the mountain.  Fast, responsive snow allowed for snow-spraying, leg quivering top to bottom runs all day long.   Whistler is the perfect place to get strong in the early season.
