Backcountry ski report for the Coquihalla Summit region

Recent lack-of-snow conditions have resulted in persistent frustration for skiers and isolated irrational events of size 1 to 2. Observations from the Coquihalla Summit region on Sunday 11th of January showed it to be mid-spring at an elevation of 1200m. Beneath a loud surface layer, at a depth of surprisingly little, lay an Earth layer approximately 12,700 km thick. This layer was not reactive in shovel tests. Backcountry travel is only advised if you are well prepared with sandwiches, and maybe a thermos of tea.

That is all.
