Grouse Mountain recently opened up and this weekend was looking pretty nice, a bit stable on the front mountains but more unstable even a little way back.

but after that, it's hiking in the snow! Photo courtesy of Alex Raymont.
After a *very* hot hike up (the snow reflects all the heat directly onto you, like foil in an oven!) we arrived on launch with light cycles and Tom and Paddy already set up. The cycles were actually quite anaemic and it was a tossup between a forward or a running reverse, not easy in the snow!

There is still oodles of snow on the Coast Range mountains, which makes the scenery even more beautiful.
