The last 6 days have been the best continuous period of powder I've had since starting guiding in 2001.
It thumped with snow on 4 out of the 6 days with strong winds, so we were in the trees and off any slopes approaching 30 degrees, but that didn't cause any loss of fun units.
I have NEVER worn my fat skis and downhill boots for such a continuous period. Utter and brilliant madness.
We are now well set up for the rest of the winter :)
It thumped with snow for half the week, and we've been staying below the tree line for the visibility and on slopes of less than 30 degrees to avoid the avalanche danger. Neither of those 2 "restrictions" seemed to bother us at all - the powder down low was just exceptional - light, fluffy and deep, whereas higher up the strong winds from the north have really played havoc with the coverage.
I have never worn my fat skis and downhill boots for such a long continouous period of time. It really is STUNNING.
So now we are well set up for the rest of the season.
