woke up this morning to find out that the weather forecast was correct for once. the streets were covered with a layer of snow and all parked cars have an added layer of icing. i’ll be driving out to my nash and my meeting with my mom’s rav 4, but before then, i had to scrape off the icing on the car. the snow is not heavy but it keeps falling through the day. i wonder if what condition it’ll be tomorrow and whether driving my beemer is plausible

annual ski trip

image

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

day 558 – whistler we go

image

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 206 – snowy days

wake up to a vancouver of snow covered streets and rooftops. glad that there’s finally fresh new snow on the mountains. a few days of sunshine just as you think spring is almost here, coupled with a few days of snow. that’s not unusual and that’s kind of sums up vancouver’s weather pattern

day 151 – cypress open to close

image

beauty overlooking cypress bowl from above in the night time. stayed up on the mountain from open to 7:30pm and skied on all the runs with a mixture of both beginners and super advanced totalling at least 25 runs. slope conditions were bad in morning but improved when it started snowing after noon. today must be a good day for skiing, bumped into so many different groups of people. wonder if i will still be able to move and do exercise tomorrow
