Skied a few slack country laps outside Shames Mountain between Iron Curtain and No Dogs. Tree skiing was great, with boot top pow in sheltered areas. Wind had visually affected the alpine, especially along ridge lines, so we opted to stay low. Cold temps and little daylight make for short days out

Snow conditions were: Powder. Weather conditions were: Cold, Sunny. We rode: Mellow slopes, Open trees, Sunny slopes. We avoided: Alpine slopes. Riding quality was good.
