Powder Rules Apply!

The La Tania usual suspects putting some first tracks down this morning. A 1m base now reported on Saulire.

Powder Rules Apply – Explained…

Rule No.1No Friends On Powder Days (never wait for anyone, you’ll miss those first tracks, though waiting your turn on avalanche risk slopes is allowed).

Rule No.2Everything Excused (you should be allowed to be late or not turn up for work, school etc).

Note that in very rare circumstances certain girlfriend/boyfriend rule exceptions and/or exclusions may apply on some days.

The earliest origins of this we know of are in a 1981 US ski movie.
A Californian Ski Hire shop simply shut on Powder Days for the staff to go skiing with the sign on the door saying “CLOSED – Powder Rules Apply”.
