The tradition of pow anticipation is my favourite November past time. Each morning I go through the steps of checking weather reports and forecast outlooks. Then browse the weather stations and web cams of the coast mountains looking for the white stuff. This process can be taxing and frustrating when things aren't shaping up. Then there's a morning when all signs are go and it's time to move into action. This Sunday was that morning and my plan was only 20 minutes from our front door in Squamish.
There's always a balance of early season access to "skiable" snow but on this day we managed to get the truck to 1260 meters!
I've decided that Juneau likes face shots more than any skier / boarder I've ever met. The moment we opened the truck door she escaped into the deep.
The coolest thing about this zone is we can see it from our house!
It was a better than expected legitimate first day of deep pow!
Here we go winter!
