Fresh Snow at Chatter Creek

It snowed 20 cm at the Lodge last night and more is forecasted for tonight. This should do wonders for the lower elevations that were badly rain-crusted 10-14 days ago. Powder skiing in the Chatter Creek alpine has been excellent, with avalanche risk significantly diminished. A week ago, there had been some fresh snow on the rain crust on the East Ridge, but not enough for safe skiing. This new snowfall will help the tree skiing on the East Ridge and the lower Lodge Ridge. The tree skiing on the upper Lodge Ridge (below Dewars Bowl in the Chatter Creek watershed) was good a week ago and this new snow will add to that. It looks like things may be getting back to normal.
