Winter marches on and yesterday on mountain was pleasantly surprising with chopped up pistes during the morning that somehow stayed very soft and shreddable. Cold temps and wind transported snow got the job done, even more so in the afternoon when backcountry boot packs were half filled in after each 35 minute lap. We also saw light snow during the afternoon in spite of the generally clear weather.

Last night's snow fall was small at the base but I am guessing we will get a partial reset up top.

More sunny weather here right now and the forecast is for the next decent snowfall to commence Saturday evening.

I heard Hodaigi was great yesterday with untracked pow on piste.
