>shelter from the storm

Wind and new snow… a lot of new snow closed area schools and filled in all of our tracks from our Saturday blitz.

Chad Jr joined me and Heather for an afternoon hunt for windless terrain. We quickly figured it out on our way up to the Patrollers Chute; the west side of Moose drainage is where we needed to be!

We watched the wind create some amazing ground blizzard effect on the Ski Hill as we watched and skied from the shelter of the west end. Needless to say, there is A LOT of snow being transported into starting zones. Higher elevations where more snow exists will be severely impacted with the intensity of wind. Be safe out there!
