Whistler/Blackcomb, BC 3/28/00

<I>(Note from the Administrator: This report was originally posted on 3/29/00.

Like yesterday it was very foggy with little visibility at the top of the mountain, however, after about 1000 feet it would be come clear again. Cloud Nine and the whole 7th Heaven bowl was great today, full of boot high powder in places. The temperature remained around -5C with a wind gusting around 10-20kph. Because of visibility as bad as 10 yards, the Crystal Chair area was rather very empty. You could literally ski right onto the chair, and right back down without seeing a soul. Any part of the mountain below the top of the Excalibur Gondola was all corn and very tough on the knees. That's all from WB today, tomorrow I should be tackling Whistler again.
