Surprise Powder Morning

After a couple of days of rain in the valley, waking up to snow outside the window was a welcome Easter Saturday surprise. Also being changeover day no one was on the mountain so we had the powder to ourselves...


Went to bed last night with the sound of rain and woke up to a blanket of white outside Style Altitude HQ.

So a quick cup of tea and ski gear on while What's Apping to see who else was heading up the hill. I was on the Pontellas lift at 09.05, first on the chair and the drags doing powder stashes on my own until meeting Ken and Adrian at 10.00. It was like no one else got the memo that we had a fresh 15cm layer of snow!

The cloud cleared by around 10.30 so we did lap after lap off the Crete and Barre drags, first tracks down Pikey's shoulder and had the Crete trees completely to ourselves.

Finally called it a day around 12.15 with the sun warming up the south facing snow. But a pretty good way to spend Easter Saturday!
