Snowy day

We have new fresh snow…finally. I woke up early..very early, the full moon  was high in the sky, I guessed the weather should not be very good in the mountains but I tried anyway….let’s go to White Pass for a solo trip. At the summit, there was no visibility, a bit of SW wind  but 5 cm of new fresh snow…. Closer to Fraser the weather was a bit better…but I was too early anyway….it was still dark…I waited  a bit.  I did some nice skiing, the snow is very good now. The last weather system brought around 50cm of new snow, and it is still snowing a bit. But be aware of stability, the snowpack is very variable with a lot of weak spot but even in conservative terrain it is possible to make nice turns.

Good start with the moon rising
