We road clemina today. Trail up and down was awesome. Hit the hill climb area road east of the hill, 18" of fresh pow on a decent base. Trees and rocks are starting to be covered. But still low snow conditions. Had no issues in this area booting around. Then started in to goat ridge but it was so foggy you couldn't see so headed in to morning glory. Was fairly decent in there with 1' - 18" of new. The hazards seems to be coverd never hit anything. Lots more in there to play and hillclimb area. Was snowing good when we left. Will probably hit these areas again tomorrow

Man that snow pack in bauers looks like early December. Be there in 5 days, hoping for more snow

No major details on the incident at Oasis. I heard second hand that there were burials.

We road Clemina again today. Went into hillclkmb there was another 8-10" of snow overnight. Was a sweet morning ride in there, just what was needed to make a smile on your face. Only another 1" in morning glory.

Be safe out this way and make smart choices. Juat finished AST2 with Marshall and Frozen Pirates and heard of nothing but slides. Obviously the one in Oasis that took a life but there was 2 partial buried in cellphone bowl on Saturday and group triggered Goat Ridge bowl in Clemina today.

Rip to the rider caught in the avalanche.

I was the guy in the hillclimb when Marshall and crew came over from the south east. We adjusted my chain that was very loose over 8 turns. We're you in that group. Snow was great jn there
