Whistler, BC – Well its that time of year again when our thoughts begin to drift. Images of snowy slopes, bottomless powder and fresh tracks start to swirl in our heads like snowflakes caught in the wind. Your dreams are punctuated by images of wide open glaciers, tight trees and light fluffy powder everywhere. Your skis no longer want to stay in the closet and you find yourself sleepwalking in your boots. Whistler has been silent the last couple of weeks, but she is slowly starting to wake. I sit here looking out my window and everything is covered in a beautiful white blanket of fresh snow. We woke up to 10 cm on the ground and its still snowing. Forecast is saying 20-30 today, 20-30 Saturday and 40-50 on Sunday.
Morning of November 10, 2006 – Whistler, BC
Mountain is officially going to open on the 23rd but it looks like we might get a 18th opening. The Symphony Express lift is on schedule and should be opening in mid-December. Can’t wait to check out the new tree runs. Level IV exams are in January this year so I will be making the trip out to Sun Peaks. I will be back working with YES this year and Margie is taking a break from the Ski School and is continuing at Nature’s Door where she is enjoying the work. For the past 7 weeks I have been on Vancouver Island helping a friend build a cabin. Between the two of us, we put in all the big fir roof beams and over 60 exposed fir rafters. Then the roof, windows, doors and siding. It was hard work but a great experience.
Well, time to go. Let’s hope the snow keep coming down and we’ll see you on the slopes soon.
