Blackcomb - May 5, 2009

words and photos by Sharon Bader and Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.

My rubber arm got twisted to play hooky and ski Blackcomb. Storm board reported 3-5cms. White board at lifts reported 20cms. Felt more like the latter was true. Jesse skied with me and provided photo sluttiness but needs a brighter jacket. Snow started at 900m. The best snow was on the Jersey Cream.

Alpine did not open due to gusts of 50 - 70kmh. Undoubtedly windslab and that amount of wet snow sitting on top of frozen crust is a prime sliding surface.
