I was up there on Tuesday and conditions were absolutely epic - I've rarely been lucky enough to ski snow like that in my entire life, never mind in mid-November. Powder galore: there was no need to go hunting for stashes because the entire mountain was covered in the stuff. First day legs couldn't really do it justice but we did get in some amazing runs through the trees around Chunky's Choice/Dapper's Delight.
Heading back up again on Sunday - if they open the peak, it's going to be mindblowing. Nothing in the high alpine has been touched because until the last day or so, blizzard conditions were keeping even the avvy patrol out. Blackcomb opens Thursday, so I'll be going up Friday to check it out.
