Fresh snow in PLPP
I’ve been marooned in Calgary, and haven’t been on skis for a week. I heard that it had snowed in the mountains yesterday(Friday) and this report and photo from Andrew confirms it:
Tyrwhitt trail in PLPP Feb 7, 2009
thanks to yesterday’s snow fall, from ~2 cm at lower elevations to ~10 cm at Tyrwhitt/Elk Pass, conditions improved and were really very good.
Starting from Elkwood Parking Lot we skied Whiskey, Tyrwhitt and down by Elk Pass, we noticed significant improvement with snow condition as we skied further south and at higher elevations. Trails and tracks were well used by skiers and no ice or glazing was present even at lower elevations, some needles contamination was visible at lower elevations.

Thanks, Andrew, for the update, and yes, I’m just a little envious. – Bob
