Hey those are some good shots Mike. I like the LSD versions of Kyle n Nina & the shot of Ben n Kyle Mad doggin each other.

Try closing one eye and breathing slowly...

... it sort of comes into focus.

Big Mike, there's something wonderful about the first 2 sets of photos above that reminds me when some of us would just head out to Murrin just to fool around and have a good time. You would have fitted in well with my crowd!

Wow Ryan! Really impressed dude. I knew there was a photog in there somewhere under the boulder weenie! :)

Thanks Todd. It seems faster from afar i am certain! :)

Considering how well we get on Glenn i'd say you're right! Fun.. It's all about fun. Can't wait to rope up with u this summer!!

Good eye Andy!

Kyle was kind enough to put up Werewolves of London, so i could hangdog and flail all over it. It was NOT pretty, but i managed to take it down. Ryan took some shots, i believe?? Maybe he will post em up.

If the resevoirs and forests dont get some....we wont be doing much this summer. Last time this happened they closed down everything....but not the Grouse gondola so I doubt Shannon Falls gondola would close.

Hey how is that Heresy route? The other lines to the right are primo, a little airy but primo

Heresy looked good. I didn't get on it, but it's a bit of a boulder problem at the bottom and the difficulty eases twards the top.

We definetly need some precip. It looks like this low is going to hit mostly to the south of us... Doh! Climbing is nice, but water is life..

Is this year drier than 2010? Remember them trucking snow in for the LimpDicks?

Skiing sure seems perilous this season. Three of my students have had accidents on the hills.... ( one minor MCL injury, another broke his collarbone and one young lady with a gr1 concussion )

Yes Tami, it's drier for sure. We had good snow in 2010. The freezing level was really high so the north shore mountains didn't do so good. By compairison, we were riding pow all the time, with next to no one on the hills thanks to everyone thinking whis would be too expensive!!

This is a lot more like 04-05. That year we had 253cm's cumulative by the end of January. Then we had 47cm's in feburary and March and April were epic with 143cm's and 197cm's respectively. May didn't hurt either with another 45cm's for a grand total cumulative snowfall of 640cm's.

I am really hoping for something similar this year. This high pressure has to push south again eventually! They don't call us the wet coast for nutin' !!

Edit these are the numbers for 2010

Nov 266cm
Dec 363cm
Jan 195cm
Feb 259cm
Mar 315cm
Apr 143cm
May 38cm
1579cm total cumulative.

It was f*#k!ng epic!!!

I will be in Vienna next week getting the pad ready!

Specifically, these are the records for consecutive days without measurable precipitation at YVR wiithin the month of January. Measurable precipitation is defined as 0.2mm of rain or 0.2cm of snow. Observations began in 1937 at YVR.
