IMG_20171222_151010671.thumb.jpg.af4cf60af403e60afcd110a854b390ab.jpgI skied a double header at Camp Fortune to check on conditions and catch the opening of the Skyline side.  Friday I skied in the afternoon and Saturday in the morning. Marshall opened on Friday. Bud Clark, Lower Canadian and Sparks opened on Saturday.  Snow was being blown on Allen's Alley on Friday and on Saturday the guns were moved to Slalom. Expect them both to open soon.  Clifford, Paradis and Sparks had the best snow conditions.  Bud Clark and Marshall were a little choppy from the man-made snow gravel.  Lower Canadian on Skyline was decent though. The right side of Clifford was being used for racing so its iced up a bit.  Crowds were small for the beginning of the Christmas break and heavy snow began to fall on Saturday. I think we ended up getting like 7-10cms! so Sunday should be great.  Happy Holidays, ski on!

Thanks for the great report. Looks like you were making up for some lost time! Did they remove the t-bar in the Alexander/MacDonald sector? Will it ever be lift served again? Looks like a couple of decent trails there. I see another dump in our area is predicted. I hope it does, it will cover up the crust we have from the wet day yesterday.
