Had my first day of the year today, so fun! Got there around 130 or so & did one big, long 4,500 feet of pow in the old growth run! It was good times except a bit of a rowdy ski out @ the bottom. I'll try to post a pic or something later.


Why u call that thing Jimi's eye Mike?? I've always called it the eye or the pyramid??

Why do we call it Jimi's eye? Because if you look it the end of that ridge from the right angle it looks like Hendrix and that's his right eye.. Ill try and get a pic sometime.

Ekat-Sweet! Enjoy those turns!

Feeling it, could only make it to 2 pm....started at 8:30....got 6300 vert feet in today. Back side of Kirkwood open....hopefully they brought in more medics....AWFUL conditions...new owners seem to think these early season conditions are a go.

Time for a hot tub or something and some snow romping with my new doggie!

Oh poo....camera in car, pics later

That's how I felt when we opened with 25cm! It's still touch and go in the alpine too, but it's open... We've had snow years where the base hasn't even gotten this good.

Here are some pics from Thursday. I've been a write off for the past couple days. 6 powder days in a row can really kill a guy.

We got 4 cms that day.. about the same on the truck.

I'm showing you my ghetto a$$ broken windows because i'm getting them fixed today!!

We rode some trees and other fun stuff...

Sitting at Merlin's after another fantastic day. Something about McConkey just came on, and despite everything, I still can't help but feel a little sad for Shane and his family.

RIP Shane!!

Dave that's a awesome video! That is a Sherpas Cinema joint and they are based out of Whistler. The cinematography skills these guys have are simply amazing. That cut you posted was bunk though.. Here's the Sherpas Original cut.






If you like that one than you really should see their full length feature "All I Can"
