Today was one of the trickiest mornings

24 April 2008

Today was one of the trickiest mornings of the season. Yesterday afternoon’s cloud cover kept in the heat and put a crust on what was wonderful powder but the clouds also stopped the suns rays from properly transforming the snow. The result was no powder or spring and a delicate situation. We found that mid-altitude and away from the sun (meaning west and north) worked because anything in the sun had already lost its support and we managed a decent Sachette and little play on the Lavachet. It was hot and sunny today so tomorrow we should have some proper spring snow and we’re expecting a better re-freeze than last night, which was minimal. We now off the Gourmadine’s 2nd Annual BBQ!
