The forecast said it would be a carbon copy of Monday and Tuesday, and they were correct. Sunny AM...

I know it wasn't there yesterday at 2:30 PM. I know it didn't snow in there today. But uniquely, it was only in Bye Bye Bowl. There was a touch on Green Run leading to Peyto Pass, and again on Assiniboine Trail, but there sure wasn't any in Boundary Bowl, on South 205 or South Pockets. So it looks like it either blew in or fell in an isolated snow shower late yesterday. Either way, it was sure nice. There were traces/dustings of snow elsewhere, too, but nothing as deep as in the Bowl.
Yesterday, I ran into an interesting guy from the British Army in for a few days on vacation from the UK. I took him for a single touring run through the south side chutes to show him some good stuff and the access routes, and lo and behold ran into him today playing in my powder stashes down there. In fact, a bunch of people have been using that traverse to access the nice powder, so many so that you can now see the traverse from Tee Pee Town chair. He and I did a few laps of the chutes together.
Lots of people continue to go in through Wildside and continue to Farside, as you can see by the tracks in the photo below.

I post a lot of similar pictures (from obvious stopping spots and places I go regularly). Here's a new perspective on the day, from the Tee Pee Town chair at noon.
