WINTER SPORTS -- Powder is the word for President's Day Weekend skiers.
Around 2 feet of blower powder piled up and was waiting for skiers today. The full moon is out and everyone is ready to go out and shred!
For those of you heading off the managed slopes of area resorts, John Olson, Forest Service hydrologist in North Idaho had this reminder:
"No matter how much fun you are having, you can still die in an avalanche."
Fernie Alpine Resort reported 9 inches of new powder snow earlier today and it was still snowing.
– 22cm in the last 48hrs and currently snowing close to 5cm an hour of Blower Powder.
