7th heaven

Still no new snow in Whistler, but the sun is out and trying to soften up the snow that it can get at on the mountain. Otherwise, a wind-blown ice crust sums up the snow conditions Unless you went to Lakeside bowl on 7th Heaven.

With that said, skiing today was just a matter of moving the legs and having some fud, with the off chance of forming a freckle or two. The summer bike trails through the trees are smoothing out with more traffic and damn are they fun! Without charging to find powder or even good snow you don’t feel guilty about stopping to take in the views. The visibility today was unlimited; I spotted Alaska to the north and could just make out the Hudson Bay looking east.
