Kootenay Pass Dec 3
Cooler temps today continues to tighten up the snowpack. We skied terrain similar to the other post from earlier today. Temps -2 parking lot, -5 at the Baldy Rocks ridge. We found good stability on the N and NW aspects but there was a strong westerly wind all day which made it quite cold on the ridge top. Heavy loading on the other side so we elected to ski the N/NW aspects. Met up with a group that did some digging on the S side and they found easy results and didn’t ski it. Snowing S-1 pretty much all day with more forecast for the next two days.
Had some great turns with lots of face shots today! Will need to keep an eye on the wind over the next couple days but good to see the snow getting drier and the coverage getting better. Hoping this cooling trend continues….
