20cm of blower at sunshine today.  I adore my new s7's. Jit, you were right about them on the groomers.  If you don't stay on top of them and allow that front edge to bite it whips you into an unsaveable turn.  I found them no harder to ski then my 172's even a the 188 length. And they were amazing at absorbing the bumps and chop. I even liked them in the moguls. What a fantastic ski.  The hype was right!

Sunshine was pretty good yesterday too... Not much for visibility most of the day though.

Yup it was good.  We rocked goats eye all day.  Rode the south chutes yesterday and then rode the trees on the left hand side.  Boot top pow all day long!

All week, they are lucky to be high enough to not get affected by the thaw.

The dive should be open regularly as well, I was in there on Saturday and it was decent.

Yep just picked up some 2011 K2 Kung Fujas (179s) in Jasper but looks like they will have to wait until next year to see the slopes.  :'(

That was taken by my buddy on his tour, he takes some really nice pics...

For being a backcountry bowl, there were quite a few tracks in there. It was still softer than anything inbounds though.
