Cold, cold day

We had a good day today, but damn, it was cold. I think the high was like +8°F. I did not head out until after lunch and even then it was quite chilly. The snow and wind picked up too making it difficult to take any pictures today. Having my hand outside of my gloves for even a minute made them stinging cold.

Conditions on the slope were not ideal. We think the very cold snow was compressed by the groomers leaving behind some very hard packed snow. That made it not so ideal for some good snowboarding. However, I was able to find some powder in one of the large bowls. After about 3 hours the cold was getting to me and I had enough.

The snow is coming down quite nicely and we're expecting up to 14" of new snow by tomorrow afternoon. If there's a lot of new snow tonight I'm sure I will head out first thing in the morning.

Hope you're having a wonderful time, despite the less than ideal conditions.

Sounds like you're having a great time although at 8 degrees, I'd be staying in the hot tub or sitting by the fire with a hot drink in my hand.

There was a story on the news this morning about two snowboarders who got trapped in the snow. Thought of you, but they were from Canada - silly Canadians.
