I checked out Kelly Canyon today and was amazed to find 8-18 inches of powder everywhere!!
There is not any base to speak of and the powder is so light and ‘dry’ that you do have to be careful of hidden obstructions but was a blast to ski anyway!
I skinned up Moose out of the lower parking lot and followed the ‘fenceline’ track to Norm’s Hill(Tele Hill)
The ski hill folks told me they intend to open the slopes on Friday, the 19th.
