T360 Late Eve. Apres Ski Edit, Under Construct @ 11:18 P.M.

Tomorrows User Friendly, Will Be The Grooming Night-Shift
Going On Now, Because...

More Snow Equals More Challenge...

...And we think the Groomed Terrain will be Outstanding
tomorrow morning.

There’s no doubt, abundant, thickly falling snow, especially
snow that has higher internal humidity, creates challenge
for all skill levels. It just takes more effort to push it around
while you’re controlling direction and speed. However, it also
packs really, really well, and that’s why we think tomorrow/Friday
has so much excellent potential.
(Please Note: The majority of the new snow fell after grooming,
just before, and during Open hours.)

We’re going to start from the ground up, so here is the basic
snow that fell over Wed. night in an overhead close-up. It’s not
hard to see that there is a quite soft, somewhat thick buildup.

We can safely make a broad generalization with “More Snow
Equals More Challenge” because the distribution of the new
snowfall seemed to be very similar over the entire Mountain.
We think the biggest factor was the 180 degree rotation of
wind direction that accompanied the snowfall, so basically,
all sides of Tremblant got a turn getting some facing snow
exposure, or drift-in benefits.

With that context in mind, and starting above, we take a closer
look at the snow, and how it accumulated, in a pic. sample sequence
on Versant Soleil, Trail # 95, Algonquin. You can more or less
transfer this sample everywhere groomed at Tremblant today,
however we are focusing on this “Green” rated terrain to re-assure
Beginners and Intermediates who are always the most sensitive to
challenge. Experts can, and do, take care of themselves and thrive
on the enjoyment of new snow that their experience allows, so they
do not need our focus, other than to say “Average Is Excellent” at
Tremblant right now.

One step up in perspective, we can see the thickness, but at the
same time, we can also see that it is reasonably well able to support
a skiers weight. The critical part is the skill of the skier to exert
control moves that do not cause the Ski edges to “Dig In”.

The final shot in this sequence is the “Big Picture” in which all
the snow visible, from side-to-side, and top-to-bottom, is all
exactly the same as the first pic. above, the close-up of the
snow with the skis showing the detailed nature of the way it
lays on trails.

In an environment as safe as Algonquin, this is actually a very
good learning experience for Beginners and Intermediates.
The pitch is shallow, there is still very good floatation, and with
correct instruction it is a vital lesson in how to manage/implement
control moves safely when Mother Nature makes things a bit difficult.

Otherwise, as we stated above:

"Experts can, and do, take care of themselves and thrive on the
enjoyment of new snow that their experience allows, so they do
not need our focus, other than to say “Average Is Excellent” at
Tremblant right now."

Tomorrow: Sunny, -3 C, Groomed ... Wow, Nice!!!

------------------- 5:43 A.M. Orig. Post -----------------------

102/102(*) Open Trails on the Snow Refreshed Slopes at #Tremblant .

Just Add 5 cm’s Of Fresh Snow Over All Of This:

If You Were Looking For Increases In “User Friendly”,
Then Let's Look In 2 Directions.

1) It Is 20 Degrees Celsius Warmer Now,
Than It Was 24 Hours Ago.

2) More Snow, now forecast in 2 separate time-frames.
The first was overnight, the second, today starting
at around 11:00 A.M. and going through to about
7:00 P.M. this evening. So far, an Officially recorded
5 cm's

The Skiing can only be better, and it’s been fantastic for
a long time to begin with. So, if you’re arriving at Tremblant
anytime within the near future, you have the constant,
incrementally improving conditions of a very fully mature
Mid-Winter base of exceptional depth and refined development
to look forward to.

:) Bring Back The Memories... :arrow: Research Future Visits...
If you would like to look up dates you visited Tremblant, or you
want to research days/weeks/months to visit, you can sample what
they look like historically, month by month, year by year.

GoTo: Archive, Search Reports by Date: Index: http://tinyurl.com/yktelmu

When reviewing dates from any of the past, numbered, archived pages,
you can use the "Previous Topic" or "Next Topic" buttons, located
screen far right, in upper date/message bar to scroll through sequential
dates, or use your browsers "back" button to stay on the selected index
page for non-sequential date reviews in either forward or reverse order.

There are approximately 6, 25 day Index pages per season.

( :idea: If you "Bookmark" the link above, it will always take you to the
First index page with the latest posts. That gives you an immediate,
current to 25 day past, review scroll of Winter Alpine Conditions by
consecutive date.)
