Come see it to believe it!





Days like today are few and far between in Ontario...but I'll take every one we get! The roads may have been a challenge leading here but this rare dump of powder snow was worth it for all those who decided to make the trek.  At 6:20am when I was spilling the details of the overnight snowfall to Jane Haughton of CBC 1 radio I had no idea that we would see double the amount of forecast snow today...by that time the snow depth was boot deep...


Shortly after that time the snow started falling again...heavier by the minute it seemed. By mid afternoon on some of the protected areas where the wind had not blown and affected the evidence...it was knee deep...

As you can see in this next photo...I'm not making this up! This was taken in the middle of one of our western runs....and as I write the snow is still heavily falling.


Here are more photos taken by Laura B and myself today at the Brim,

 Early am just before start up...Main Street Chair



Our snow blowers and shoveller's kept busy all day

Full skies!

GOOD TIMES WERE HAD BY ALL!

















 The forecast snow is supposed to wind down but the weekend weather looks FANTASTIC! We have lots to enjoy this weekend so come on out for some downtime on the slopes of Brimacombe!

It was another day in Paradise,
Cheers,

Mark
