Snow Information

A few new runs opened up yesterday, most notably Jekyll & Hyde. That natural snow catchment showed the best of it's multiple personalities, with deep snow through the upper trees and some plentiful lines down below the cliff bands. Taynton continues to ski well in general, and the lower drainages are starting to pack in nicely for a more consistent exit. Outrider was in good shape, especially earlier, the expanse of Sky/Roller let you really open up with the great groom offering superior grip and the groom on View provided a nice flat track from summit, and any diversions off the sides found small, soft pack bumps that allowed a pretty quick rhythm. Still plenty of good chopped or packed powder turns throughout Founders Ridge runs, with the varied fall lines offering a vast range of challenges. The last week of snow has set things up really nicely, and forecasts this week look promising for a little more, possibly later today/tonight, and then on Tuesday.

SNOW REPORTER BIOGRAPHY - EVAN PACEY

About Snow Report Evan 2
The wandering wordsmith is back for another season of masochistic 5:30 AM starts – he may have made his bed, but it seems he is unable to lie in it! Here is his bio:

A transplanted Aussie via the UK, he can still be heard lamenting that with his accent, he used to be special around here! Having been on the mountain more winter’s than not over the last decade and a half, he’s seen the constant evolution that is Panorama, and still finds plenty to turn his head amongst the massive variety of terrain.

Enjoying the easy option of chairlifts up and gravity feeding down on either one or two planks, Evan spends the majority of his winter on the mountain. Be it teaching with the Ski & Ride Centre, volunteering adaptive technique with PASS, or simply making tracks for the pure joy of it, he’s rarely off snow for any great length of time. (That said, he can often be found perking up on a Lusti’s coffee, or regaling in the T-Bar after the odd social lubricant – we all know what happens with all work and no play!)

Working in conjunction with the Panorama Avalanche Office, and with backup provided by the Countess of Accumulation, he intends to info-tain you throughout the season, direct you to the well groomed and the rough diamonds alike, and provide the interpretations that are the stories behind the figures. Now buckle up, strap in and ride off into the sunset...
