Conditions look like winter now, which is nice. It was clearer at the top and the pipe was perfect. Photo AR

Well, what to say about today? The weather finally kinda cleared up this morning and the cloud and fog were thankfully absent from the pipe, so obviously all the photographers were virtually circle jerking at the possibility of bagging some shots with a bit of blue sky in. They must have got a bunch, too, as there was some semi-inducing riding from a fair few folk, both known and unknown, for them to snap at. Like big, hungry black-clad crocodiles.

Rather than try to crib the highlights out of the 200 or so shreds, we’ll just leave it at that for today as tomorrow’s when things get interesting. Nothing to do with slacking off and sneaking a few powder turns, honest…
