BC Boost!

The past week has provided a monumental boost to Sierra ski psyche. Conditions have been stellar both in and out of bounds, particularly if one chooses their terrain and timing wisely. Steep lines are filling in, but sharks still lurk. Overall the mountains have finally transformed to the magical canvas where turns can be drawn at will. This transformation does allow localized instabilities to be realized as terrain complexity is still high. Zones of tension and windloading (read: convexities) must be carefully evaluated with regards to larger scale slope stability to enhance safe travel conditions. The ever-increasing solar radiation inputs add a complicating factor that must be continually assessed. Interpret the solar and topographic signals correctly, and ye shall receive glorious turns!
