I'd say you definitely picked the wrong day to take off. Not just nice and sunny but the snow was great top to bottom and hardly a hint of wind even up top. Clouds rolled in this afternoon but the morning was absolutely perfect. Even the lift lines were surprisingly short.

Windbuff today! Skied most of the day with the kids, so didn't make it up til late in the afternoon. But face of five filled in nicely and skied creamy good. Top should be nice in the morning if they can run G2/23 with the winds.

A bit of dust on crust today with moderate winds and limited visibility on much of the mountain. Still had some fun turns on chair 4.

Yeah, skied all over today looking for some soft snow. The bottom half of Avi 2 was nice, but the top was ice/hard crust and a little dicey entrance. Some decent turns between Rodgers and the Bear. The best snow I found was on Mambo in the afternoon. With them blowing snow in the Main Park and winds out of the west in the afternoon, it was the softest snow I found all day. Sounds like this week should be good - wish I could be here.

Today was similar to yesterday with a thicker coat of dust over the crust. Even found some spots where I couldn't feel the crust. A lot more people on chair 4 today. Snow started falling more heavily as I left Canyon Lodge. Roads were dicey. When I drove up to Canyon I turned left to park and couldn't make it up the little hill in 2wd even with new all-terrain tires and a limited slip differential. Even in 4wd I was slipping.

Sierra Cement on low angle runs... spent most of the day cleaning out the snow at my cabin and get ready for the 10+ feet headed my way. Turns on Thursday, let's hope we can get a good pitch.

You know it was a weird day, when people are talking about the powdery runs they got on Chairs 4 and 15.

But I have to admit we found some of our best skiing down low in the trees on Monday and Tuesday.

One of my favorite storm days was unlimited powder refills on chair 4. Great chair for storm days but don't tell anyone. :P

I won't but it is... Especially when it's really windy.

This is the internet. Don't give up the secrets. Before you know it, people will be talking about the parking lot by chair 9.

That's one big line at chair 8 this afternoon! Looks like Canyon Express is shut down.

And the top...
Go down a few flights and then crawl your way up the drift.

Looks like pretty tall crowns where the top slid. That's unfortunate but not surprising. My friend said snow on 5 and 3 was really fun.

Perfect packed powder and creamy powder stuff. 6 feet new and your skiing the top 5-10 inches. Fun stuff
