    Yep, socked in at the top of the hill. Went over to Blackcomb and skied off the glacier lift. Didn’t go any higher as the visibility wasn’t great and there’s lots of avi clearance debris which if you hit them at speed would mean really bad things.

    So took the peak to peak over to Whistler and skied down to Creekside for lunch.



    Had a fun afternoon skiing by feel off the t-bars at Whistler. Off piste up high would have been brilliant if one could actually see. On piste from the Roundhouse down was actually skiing quite well.

    Did someone say apres ski ??? :)

    The sun is shining and fresh snow has fallen but I’m going to call it for skiing for this trip. I need to listen to my body trying to tell me I need a break after 5 weeks of pretty solid skiing and I don’t fancy facing the weekend lift queues.

    I’ll put up some final thoughts in the next day or so as I make my way back across the Pacific to Oz to complete this trip.

    Well done.

    I actually took a day off mid week in Niseko, just cause I could. No need to push myself (if snow was epic , maybe)

    I just hate badly made coffee, luckily I work near Canberra’s best coffee shops!
