MEESH'S WHISTLER REPORT - Winter in April

Posted: 20. April 2008

Whistler, BC – Well what an April we are having. Today was MINUS 13 in the Alpine with snow flurries!! So much for the sun and spring skiing. Well the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival is in town and what a circus. Whistler closes today and we can still ski out. What a shame, but the B-Side will be open until June 8th.

Enough small talk, time for the big news. I finally got my Level IV!!! Went to Silver Star at the beginning of the month and nailed the skiing. YES Tours was well represented with both myself and Dick passing. A great feeling to get that monkey off my back.

Also got my eyes lasered. What a great feeling being able to see without having to deal with contact lens. Well the Whistler Bike Park is scheduled to open May 18th, if the snow melts. Hopefully we’ll have a warmer summer then last year.
