Just had a killer ski day with Blanchard at Fernie Nordic.

YAY!

I've been hearing about the place. . . and it was high time to try it out.

We skated. . . it was FUN.

Have fun in RR Mike, weird that going sledding would turn into a clustertruck?! Hey Ekat we're actually in the coast mountains I believe here, Rockies are about 7 hrs due east, not sure what sub range Whis/blackcomb falls into maybe someone can help us.....

WOW. . . is Whistler really 7 hours west of Fernie?

Way farther than I thought.

P.S.

GOOD GOD. . . I just pulled a GOOG (rhymes with spooge) on it (I think I did this a while back - but forgot). . . and Whistler's almost 13.5 hours from Fernie.

Over at Fern Ridge...had the BEST snow and trees, a few places were icy where it was narrow and every one turning in the same places.

One more day of skiing until I return home to Santa Cruz and await some new snow in California before we head back up to Utah (Alta) and Montana (Bridger Bowl).

Looking forward to some "horizontal" time....I'm feeling this trip.

Nice Susan!!! I was at kwood on Saturday. The snow was less than prime so I ended up switching out my snowboard for some skis. HO MAN was I bad at skiing haha! Although after a couple hours I was linking turns together and having fun. I haven't had so much fun on a groomer blue run since I was 9!!!

Cool mojede!
