Ski Update !!

Ya, so as you all know (all 3 of you that look at this blog) there hasnt been any ski updates lately……. Well I hurt my back pretty bad about three weeks ago so I was just takin it easy, the weather was crap anyways. So ya, it was sunny all weekend and pretty warm out, the park was pretty bangin, but it was pretty windy making the jumps a bit of a no go. We (ian and i) spent most of the day just hittin the rails and some moguls too of course, cause we’re rad. So we never like havin to pull out the camera, but it was too nice out not to get a few little shots…

April in January?

Well its been blue bird and +7 degrees give or take the last little while at our home mountain of Big White… Certainly a little strange, but we can’t really complain. It would have been a banger park weekend but unfortunately it was closed down all weekend for some lame snowboard only slopestyle competition… So when you’re actually losing base instead of adding to it and the park is closed what do you do????? Ski bumps!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy New Year!

No, I haven’t stopped skiing!! We’ve just been having too much fun to bother pulling out a camera for 5 minutes… I haven’t been updating too much because of the lack of pictures, but I am going to go against the rules and let everyone in on the last couple days of skiing that was had. Last Sunday Dec.29 Ian and I headed out to Revelstoke after the aforementioned DUMP of snow. Originally we had planned to go Saturday and Sunday, but Ian’s flight from Saskatchewan was delayed. Ian and I were both rocking our new powder sticks which was alot fun with all the new snow. It was a super good day, and I think the first time we actually were able to squeeze a full day out of our bodies at that mountain (BIG). Also as a side note, the new Ripper Chair is complete crap… Fast forward to Dec.31 at Big White. Again skiing with Ian it was our first good “park” day of the season. No airs yet, all rails and jibs… It was nice and fresh out there and seemed to be the only place on the hill that wasn’t busy. We rode the lift up twice but sessioned features for about 4 hours before calling it a day. We were just having too much fun to even remember to take some pics!! It was a great day of progression for both of us. Lastly, Jan.1 being a little bit ronnied it was a late start, but a start nonetheless. I skied with Seth and his cousin Nate from the island. It ended up being one of those days you get about 3 or 4 times a year at Big White. A larger than expected snowfall occured overnight, and you would expect everything to be tracked out to hell and back by noon, but that simply wasn’t the case. With the hill being fairly quiet and most of the people being tourists, we were able to find a couple REALLY good spots, and I mean REALLY good. I was on my dinky little park skis because I hadn’t expected anything like this when coming up 2 days prior… I wish I had my ARG’s, but it made for some good face shots being deep in the snow!

Cold Snap and Big White

The interior has been in a deep freeze for the last 2 weeks with a high pressure system. Temperatures as low as -30C with little to no snow. The last few days has been better with a fairly decent accumulation of snow. After braving big white for several days in the cold with only groomers to ski, we finally headed up yesterday with over 10-15cm of fresh snow to work with… oh ya, the park was open too.
