New snow

Finally, we got some new snow. Conditions are getting better. Easter week-end is closer than ever, time for skiers to go out. Another week spent skiing in the Chilkat pass area.

Good skiing

Few pictures from last week in Haines Pass area. Weather was great then slowly getting warmer, cloudy and eventually  the snow came.
