Yesterday's strong winds blew through 'til evening time, disrupting lift services, but also shifting lots of snow. Only a little new snow fell overnight, however, deep powder has settled all over the mountain. Once again Strawberries and the valley below Hana 3 are bottomless, and combined with this morning's sunshine, the run off the peak is magical. Avalanche awareness, as well as exposed wind-blown area caution is required.

Late update:

Warmer temperatures softened the snow and made for good turns on the lower half of the mountain. The wind affected areas are still hard, but a dose of new snow should take care of that. Currently, the sun is out and temperatures are mild. It's a great afternoon for cruising around the mountain.
