So day 75. 860,000’ [260,000m] vertical so far. 27 days left. Still on target.

Every day is different. Yesterday skied 6,000m. Some wonderful skiing in the washing machines and then up on chief and sunny side.

Managing fatigue is an issue. Stretching important. Last day off 14th January during polar out break.

Today warmer. Cooler tomorrow on.

Bit over 5,000m today with 6 laps of static cling.

Colder whether coming back.

Couple nice little runs in the powder from a few days ago.


warmer maximum of 4 degrees in the valley today. Are you finding the valley a bit slow?

How's the thaw/freeze first thing in the morning?

Almost no change. Appear very normal.

Today I’d say it was the cold that kept people away. -20 on the crystal.

Still lots of skiing for March.

Silverstar as well.

Was fortunate to have one powder day at Silver Star last week. Putnam Creek (backside) was well worth the trip. All Black runs. Not used to the long run-outs there but was told to wax for the conditions in advance.

Crowds thin yesterday due to wind and cooler temps. A brilliantly sunny day otherwise.
A repeat day that promises to warm up by the aft.

Mid-season conditions are in play here. Lots of areas where the snow blew in.

So unfortunately due to the potential for borders to be closed, heading home this Wednesday. 1 week early!

Snow and skiing conditions absolutely superb at the moment. Bright sunshine and cold conditions!

So only way to change my booking was to drive to Kamloops Airport and get it changed by the counter staff.

Air Canada phones are not even putting you on wait, and the web site wont rebook under the 22nd, [even though it says you can change up to 1 hour and 15 minutes before departure].

Should be 95 days. Have to call it a training run for next years 100!

So you go into 14 day quarantine when you get back here too
