Today, there was spring skiing above the fog that enveloped Vancouver. It was great to be above the inversion and have windless sunshine.

Hi nwo,

I'm doing pretty darn good considering. Pain is minimal, just working on getting feeling back 100% in my left leg. It's coming, and i get more return all the time which is nice.

Sorry i never returned your email. I got a whole whack of messages at that time which was very encouranging, but overwhelming and i'm afraid too many went unreturned.

Edit: great news Jim! Let's get out for a tour when conditions get better.

That's a good one. Urban schralping = huge cringe factor for me. Lots metal and concrete. No fall zone

I got up fairly early today, only to arrive at the lifts and realize that i'd totally spaced on my boots.... Doh! So back home i went and i missed the first couple runs.

When I got up Solar I headed straight to 7th heaven.

The minute I showed up, the chair opened.

Sixth chair on 7th Heaven

I got three decent laps in on the pow groomers and then peaced out when it got chopped up and busy.

Tomorrow looks sweet!

Nice Rick! Looks like you guys are killing it this year!!

ThisJustIn and I got to shred some hot pow together Thursday morning.

I had a little snow on the truck.


Website said 13cm's. It kept getting fatter all morning though.

Justin after our second sweet lap.


After a couple more laps We hiked up to the top of crystal chair.


It was total elephant snot up there. We dropped in on a sweet untracked groomer, and I dropped my nose in for the first turn and instantly felt like i was going over the bars. The rest of the run was a sticky nose wheelie. Very challenging and not extremely pleasant.. Lol

Justin got a little wet...


That evening Sandra and I went to visit Justin and Mindy at the club for a soak in tub.

Mindy, Justin and Sandra



It was a great day, and I was happy to share some of my lines with Justin. Hopefully next time he comes we have more to work with! ;)

one word to describe the skiing on mammoth today.......DANGER...rain all the way to the top ,froze last nite....makes for some slick conditions. Only climax had a little blown in snow which was ok then the clouds rolled in and they shut it down.
