The crew was three splitters and one snowshoer. We stayed at the Taylor Meadows shelter last weekend. Breaking trail and heavy overnight packs ment we only get one run on Saturday and two on Sunday.

We stayed in the trees due to a scary avi forcast, but our pits BTL and at TL were all pretty bomber. Oh well, the trees were still great with 40 cm of heavyish pow on the fun south facing slopes we rode. Just wish we had more time and energy.

A bit more is here:
