Actually it was damn good last night. It was snowing all day (it turned to rain around 9:15 when we got off the hill). There was probably 5 to 8 cm in places, and the hill was virtually untouched when we started.

So I heard.

And today on the radio it talked about how the fresh stuff had hit so I packed up my gear, got all ready, and then got a call from my boss saying not to come in tomorow and that it was currently (10 AM ish) pissing rain.

:mad:

Last night was sweet. Some areas had a crust under 5-6cms of fresh and other spots were 10cm of fresh with no crust. It snowed all night and lift lines were pretty small. One of my best times at Cypress.

Knee to waist deep powder at Cypress until around 4 pm!!! The best riding I've seen all year!

The snow was still rideable when I left and will likely be decent tomorow for those who are thinking about going up.

all I have to say about tonight was epic. It was rockies powder, and at 10pm I was still skiing knee deep break-away powder.

Cypress got more snow.

I just got called in to do some extra shifts but I had to let the boss know that I'd be on the hill for a could of hours before setting my back to the shovel.

I think it just stooped snowing half an hour ago.

I'll be up Friday too.

50 cm expceted over night. Show up early if you are going to Cypress.

Baker aparently had so much snow comming down today that people were turning back because of the roads and making the drive up to Cypress.

I'm going to hit the hill Wed for some ridding, if anyone wants a ride let me know.

I should have a snow report tomorow as I plan on shoveling the piles of it that have been crushing the buildings there.

by the time I got there yesterday at 4:30 it was totally tracked out and icing over. The dark side (black mountain?) was still really soft, but everyone went over there and by 8:30 the line was 15 minutes long.

Well runs or not, the 45 cm of snow that hit over the night means that I've got some work to do (my arms are burning just thinking of it).

I'm thinking of heading up in late afternoon but can hold off until after office hours if anyone needs a ride up.

Either way I'll be on the hill tonight.

Pouring rain on Cypress today.

Survey says... wait for some fresh stuff, the weekend wasn't great either.

or, if you're more of a glass half full type....

No line ups at Cypress today!!!

Fucking amazing, I heard you could get right on the lift every run without any waits.

Maybe a free umbrella with any lift ticket purchase?

Yes, I think prices do drop but I'm not sure when.

It's snowing a lot right now. I got called in but I don't think I can make it.

Tomorrow it's supposed to snow too.

But they (who?) are calling for rain all weekend.

Despite the warm sun yesterday there is still snow on Cypress and more is falling right now.

It's expected to keep up until Saturday afternoon.

I'm planning on heading up to the hill Wed. around 1 if people are looking for rides.
