    No I found it. You can't see it on your posts, which makes sense. Then i deleted my post cos I was so embarrassed for asking the question. Now you've outed me so I'm doubly embarrassed. So it goes.

    Was there in Feb, trying to push the misses to go back again this season when we head over.
    One of my favourite resorts, quite under-rated i reckon.

    Underrated??? Why would you say that?

    I think LL suffers from the fair weather skier problem whereby it gets too cold for some. I think it rocks but can be busy. Must say it's probably the most picturesque resort to ski. I find myself stopping there on a run more often just to look at the view.

    I don't think folk understand how good the back bowl steeps are.
    Always taking about Revs and KH and Delirium at Sunshine when the serious inbound steeps conversation is had. But from my experiences of them (haven't done Revs yet) the LL back bowls compare with any of them IMO.
    And the slack country is an easy an access of any resort I have skied at.

    So when people are talking about the best Canada resorts it is always spoken behind Whistler, Revs, Big White, Sunshine, Sun Paks etc.... But IMO i reckon it is as good as any.

    Only problem is that it does not get as much snow as resorts further west but it gets enough.

    This is true.
    However the quality is amazing, doesn't go over zero for pretty much 3 months, so the snow stays quality weeks after snowfalls.

    I've no pictures of any good day in Japan.

    Too busy skiing, sky no blue, too full of cold cold dry silky powder.

    Blue sky skiing sucks.

    I think my first ten days or so on snow were bluebird days...and then I copped Buller on a thick-soup-fog day and suddenly understood how lucky I had been to that point!
