day 884 – fresh start

image

starting the new year skiing down the powders of cypress. we were one of those eager skiers who beat others up the mountain before the morning rush and out-ski the afternoon skiiers to avoid the evening traffic. i must have done minimum ten runs up and down the mountain before it was all said and done; not bad for my first skiing excursion of the season. my legs are certainly feeling tired after a full day of exertion. had some wipeouts when i unknowingly went on some black diamond runs. the weather was gorgeous, the snow conditions were great, couldn’t have asked for a better way to kickstart a 2016 full of promises

day 558 – whistler we go

my first time hitting the slopes this season came very late but i wasn’t about to let a winter season go by without having skied. spending family day up on the mountain and the whistler conditions provided nothing short of excitement. found the blue runs of blackcomb most enjoyable, snow falling at the the top with fresh powder made it best. lots of skiing done and tons of fun to be had, my legs were dead tired by the end. i am still recovering from a cold and bad cough but glad i didn’t have to change my plans and call it off. sometimes i forget how much i enjoy the thrills of carving through the snow, it gives me the sense tranquility and i find myself in calmness yet mixed with rushing adrenaline

day 215 – cypress we go

skiing season came late this year but better late than never. first time going up this year with some crazy friends who speeds down black runs and jumps at will. finally enough volume and fresh powder, but too much on some runs caused a few of us to wipe up hard and way too foggy the visibility was less than 15 feet. very happy that my ankle recovery is coming along nicely but also helped that the ski boot doesn’t allow for any extra movements
