Ski Day 11: Better than Nothing

Vert: 10,540 m YTD Cum Vert: 112,695 m
Runs: 18 YTD Cum runs: 185

We were in town again to watch basketball (the #5 nationally ranked Dinos were playing the #1 nationally ranked UBC Thunderbirds; we lost, but not by much). The games were good; my girls in particular toughed out an incredible win on the back of fabulous play by Ashley Hill after losing to UVic on Friday. But that means we skipped skiing Saturday.

Not much snow in the last week anyway; all of 4 cm on Friday. So we're back to hardpack again, meaning eminently carveable but firm snow everywhere. The day started with fog down low below the base of Goat's Eye and overcast above. AM viz was OK with splashes of near sunshine...

...but it deteriorated in the PM as the cloud deck got thicker and blacker and it tried to snow.

We played a bit in some trees today, and there were huge bumps in there no matter where we went. All in all, it was a pretty low key day.
