Whistler, BC – Well after a week in Sun Peaks it was sure nice to come back to the gong show that is Whistler during the World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Actually, the skiing is quite good and the slopes aren’t very crowded. I got knee deep fresh in the Blackcomb Glacier on Monday and it was surprisingly light. It’s hard to believe that it is mid-April as it seems more like Febraury with cooler temperatures and great snow. Our snow base is hovering at around 250 cm (in February it was 120 cm) which is great and should make for good “Spring” skiing right thru May.
Anyways, I guess I should get back to Sun Peaks and the Level IV exams. First off, the snow conditions were no where near as good as we left behind in Whistler. Very slushy at the bottom with bare cover and the top was OK but re-froze at night. Resort was very quiet which was good for us as we didn’t have to worry about other skiers while concentrating on our manouvers. Getting back to the results….....I passed my teaching!!!!!!!!! Needless to say I was very happy with the result. I’m still a little off on the skiing, but at least I’m half-way there..
That’s it for now. We still have 2 for 1 Ski Esprit at the moment as well as 2 for 1 ski school lessons, so come on out and enjoy the great skiing. WSSF is still on until the end of the week, so there is lots to do around the village. Some of the Mountain Biking trails are in good shape, so we’re starting to ease into the bike mode as well.
