Lol ya I heard. I was hoping he would take it easy on me but I'm sure a healthy sandbagging is in order... Call me tomorrow

How was last night? Maybe a report on Squamish photos?

It was a bit warmer today than yesterday so the snow was quite a bit heavier but still fun. A good workout for the pow leg.

Woody drops in to one of my favourite sub alpine laps




Cruising back to the lift.




Another wall lap was in order...





Then back up Jersey Cream.



This time we hung a Louie



Then took a quick pit stop for some water and a hunk of banana bread.

After our break we decided to head over and sample Whistler so we headed over to;

Just after leaving the station

I got a K2 split with sparks, pretty hyped about it although I am nowhere near responsible enough to even think about taking it or myself up on any snow covered peaks until we get about 4 more feet of snow. Can't wait!

At this rate that should be before Christmas!

Thanks Ekat. Looks like you will be skeezin soon!


Sick pic eastside!


I forgot to mention yesterday that the gondola takes 11 minutes in optimal conditions. It was pretty windy yesterday and stopped a couple of times so It took about 25 mins.


Here's a couple more clicks from yesterday.
