Whistler, BC – Well if I look at the calendar it tells me that it is Spring…....but, if I look up the mountain it’s telling me it’s still Winter. Mid-April and Winter is still hanging around. The snow is still great up in the Alpine and we are still skiing out on Whistler. Snow is forecast for the next two days with Spring making an appearance on the weekend.

Well a lot has happened since the last update. Margie and I went on a Heli-ski trip which was fantastic. Our guide Vlad and the folks at Whistler Heli-Ski took really good care of us. Check out the report and the photo gallery. Five days later, Margie went Cat-skiing with a group of gals. They had a great time skiing in the sun with Powder Mountain Cat-skiing. Check out the photos.

Also had the Level IV exams at the beginning of the month. I came closer on my skiing this year but it still wasn’t enough. I was happy with my skiing and improved a lot this year, so I was OK with the result.

The World Ski & Snowboard Festival is in town right now until the 24th. A lot of events and shows going on. Bike park is set to open on the 6th or 13th of May, depending on how long the snow sticks around for. Should be a good season of bike riding ahead of us. Also, Whistler has announced a new lift for next year in the Flute basin. Check the Whistler Blackcomb announcement of the new Piccolo lift.
