Yes, last week I completely have forgotten to write a snow report. I had too much fun skiing all this super light powder … This week again we skied the best powder ever. All the new snow came from North-West and was mixed with cooler temperatures, resulting in super light powder or as some ski guests called it ….. dust.
The week started out with good weather, then slowly the weather deteriorated and all tracks covered up with daily fresh powder. Despite the deteriorating weather we had two groups at the Empire Lake Chalet
(hut to hut skiing) for two nights. Skiing the grand terrain at this magic alpine place. We also skied a new line, or better said ski-route. It started at the summit of Centrale Peak, led down part of Centrale Glacier and
crossed over to Snow Cap Glacier. From there down a narrow couloir to Allalin Lake and further down the steep magic carpet of the Boundary Peak West Ridge - North Slopes to Woolsey Creek. Sounds complicated,
but it was an outstanding skiing experience and … adventure.
Amongst the best ski runs of the week are: Magic Flute from Mt. Fang to Fang Creek, the Half Pipe from Philharmonic Peak to Charlotte Lake, Forbidden Glacier from Forbidden peak to Fang Creek, then as mentioned
above the Centrale Peak - Woolsey Creek new run, Morning Glory, Holy Grail and Missing Jack from Woolsey Peak to Jack Canyon.
Of course what really made the week were all the great and enthusiastic ski guests from the USA, Europe and Canada.
Enjoy the magic of powder snow
