day 823 – pumpkin carving

image

evil cheshire was created by a team effort. i did my part early on before falling asleep on the couch halfway through and woke up to see it completed. i was super tired after such a long crazy week but wasn’t going to stop me from staying up late to chill out and watch a scary movie. no fright night this year, no kicking people as well and no crazy partying, but a halloween well spent carving pumpkin and eating junk food here and there, which i should probably feel guilty about

annual ski trip

whistler bound on bc family day to continue our crew’s annual ski trip tradition. we skied in smaller groups based on varying speeds and skill level, but reconvened at lunch at whistler village to grab some overpriced pizza slices. after taking a group picture up at the peak of blackcomb gondola, we continued our skiing but this time in different subdivided groups. wished i had the opportunity to have a few runs with the fastest of speedsters as well, but my group wasn’t too slow either. the top of the mountain was beautiful, with snowflakes falling in our faces and fresh powder for our skis and boards to shred. the blue runs highlighted the thrilling experiences carving through thick powder which really worked my legs. my triceps were not a fan of the flats of the green runs or the uphill climbs when it had to do all the work to propell myself across. had so much fun today i wasn’t ready to leave the mountain even when the lifts closed down and my legs were all skied out. would have been even better if i wasn’t still feeling under the weather. i can only wish to be back up whistler very soon
