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.

Fawn Ridge, best snow on the mountain. Some icy patches, but wonderful runs in the trees...

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!

I got a GPS watch, mainly to track my running. But I wear it skiing and I'm able to transfer tracks to Google Earth. It's fun..unfortunately the satellite imagery it's tracked on was not shot when snow was on the ground. These were my tracks at Kirkwood yesterday.

The actual GPS application allows me to animate my tracks, get my heart rate, elevation and all kinds of fun stuff.

SNOW POTENTIAL 10 to 17 inches of snowfall (up to 2 feet above 8,500 feet

Tuesday forecast for Kirkwood, fingers crossed. Plan is to leave from there and head to Bozeman for a few weeks. Trying to get as much fun "shredding" as possible before spring slaps us with all it's glory!
