    Thanks for these links, I'm hoping to get into backcountry travel in this area within the next few years, it can never hurt to be too careful, especially after what happened yesterday in CO

    I skinned up Tear Drop to around 2,800ft yesterday to get an idea of the base before tonights storms. Although in some places I found nice turns for the most part the TD needs a healthy dose of snow before it's skiing well. Hit some rocks and lost a ski at one point. I hear the storm is going to be wet and heavy snow. Perfect for base.

    I opted to ski the CCC road down to the lot from the TD/CCC/Maple Ridge intersection. Tons of Fun! Mellow powder for 2 miles back down to my car.

    Avalanche risk is high in Tucks right now. 2 people were caught in a small slide this weekend in the ravine.

    Looks like a foot of heavy wet stuff should do the trick! Thanks for the shots

    Too bad last night's storm missed us up here. We could have used it. I suppose southern areas needed it more though.

    I skinned up a nice isolated logging road I know of on Mansfield today for some crusty turns. Difficult conditions right now in the BC.

    Maybe snow coming for the weekend.
