It was an incredibly beautiful sunset last night.                                                                        Joanna Harrington Photo
At 2280 meters at 07:00 it was -6.5, winds were 10-15 KPH from the East. At 1550 meters the temperature was -1, 65 % humidity and the barometer is on a slight rise. In the valley it is 0.

The snow has tightened up and the North American Public Avalanche Danger Scale is rated as low. Click here for the latest Avalanche Advisory issued by WhistlerBlackcomb: Avalanche Advisory

In Europe many countries are debating what back country skiers should be equipped with and if they do not have the essential gear what the consequences will be, this debate will be coming to Canada.

The Peak to Valley race yesterday had ideal conditions. Fun was had by all!
