Looking at the weather last week, the forecast was for a bunch of fresh snow on Wednesday, so Karen and I decided we would go up skiing on Thursday. However, Karen got sick with a cold on Tuesday, spent Wednesday not feeling the best, and Thursday in bed with me playing nursemaid. In the meantime, 20 cm fell on Wednesday and Thursday, so I was itching to get up to the hill. When Friday came, she was still very, very sick, and at 8 AM said she wasn't coming with me. I headed off to ski alone.
It was a great day, snow wise, less so visibility wise. Occasionally socked in with a white-out, most of the day was overcast with OK viz. So I was staying near trees, playing in glorious 25 cm deep untracked powder.
