You won the prize for picking the correct day Bob! Forecast was for the same today, but didn’t turn out that way at all. My back was glad to have the rest day nonetheless, but would rather ski in the sun.

Must have seen you Bob. It was an amazing day to ski there for sure.





Skiing at its best!

I enjoyed wonderful conditions in PLPP today. It was -12 when I arrived at Boulton Creek at 11:15 a.m. and the snow temperature was also -12. The tracks were in good shape everywhere throughout the SkierBob Special.

Whiskey Jack - Excellent
Tyrwhitt - High expectations; did not disappoint
Elk Pass - Amazingly fast, but safe
Fox Creek - Enjoyable on clean snow.
Boulton Creek - Thrilling, perhaps much too thrilling.

I took Boulton Creek rather than Moraine for the home stretch. The downhills on Boulton are a bit spicy, so stay in control. It had warmed up to -6 when I returned to the car around 1:30.

I'm no longer a daredevil on the steep Elk Pass downhills and it's a good thing. As I was rounding the bend near the bottom, where the sight lines are short, there was a skier in my tracks. I was going slow enough to avoid a collision.
