Edit I hear you about the man made too. We started out on that and it was hard for me to get stoked on it too..

Yeah. . . the first lift day of my 45th season can't be on manmade. . . it just can't!

It's hard to leave a place like whistler, but mike you have to check out the Utah powder. Bring your own beer though.

Hey, Mike. . . were you born a Canuk, or did you just move there for the skeezin? (and that's a generic term for slippin' and slidin' over any and all frozen terrain.)

I was born in Edmonton, Ab and my folks moved to Vancouver Island for work when I was five. I grew up Skeezin on Mt Washington and switched to snowboarding in jr high. When I graduated I got tired of smzll town life and my parents helped me move up here so I could attend Whistler U, aka School of ski bum life and I never looked back :)


Sometimes I consider moving to the city and "getting a real job/starting a real life" then I wake up and realize there is no other place I would rather be.


Utah looks fun Justin! hmmm.... maybe I can interest someone in a little roadtrip.... Interior BC pow is pretty darn light usually as well, but not nearly as high as Utah.

snow has gotten to be a thing of the past.

:-(

i made an amazing discovery on top of mt. san jacinto a couple years ago. telemarking is probably the best way to deal with breakable crust. think about it.

telemarking is probably the best way to deal with breakable crust. think about it.

I won't call it "telemarking". . . let's call it Nordic downhill for the simple reason that you
have many more options with a free heel than you do in bondage. . .
but. . . yes. . . Nordic downhill is the very best way to deal
with breakable crust. . . and just about everything else the
fickle snowpack can hand ya!
