Well, it certainly isn't 2009 when 18 ft blanketed WB in November. While there's coverage all the way down to Creekside, meaning that the full 5280 of vertical is available, recent warming then cooling has the big hill(s) skiing more like typical northleast conditions unfortunately.
Started out this morning on Whistler, go down to Emerald and Red chair, with nothing being memorable, except for the fact that my fun skis stayed indoors, and the trusty Mythic Riders came out to deal with the crunchiness. The best was lower Ptarmigan, where the had guns blazing so we had about 2-3 inches of "powder" to put the edges in.
Later, took the peak-2-peak across to the dark side (Blackcomb), and found some reasonably decent stuff off of Glacier chair. Had to stay on groomers for the most part, but still the snow was not-so-bad.
Thankfully the tourons haven't arrived in force yet, but if they don't get a fair amount of snow in the next week or two, Christmas break will be something I'd be glad to avoid.
Compared to the rest of US this is probably the best snow, with certainly the most coverage around, but, well, it's not great. More supposed to be coming in next few days, but nothing that'll let me try out my new Kastle BMX108's darnit.

Anyway, not so bad, not not as good as in previous years.
