dude, that 50+ km/h winds together with the snowmaking was like thousands of needles penetrating through all our various ski masks...goggles freezing up for the first time each time there was a whiteout... freezing with 0 visibility, yet plenty of powder.. madness... still, first day back and it was awesome.. definitely hardcore but whatever, the rest of the season can't possibly be that bad..
And as if the freaking snowstorm wasn't enough, we left when they closed (since we got there like 1:30 :-/ ) and got stuck in a snowbank for a couple hours on highway 26... people around us getting stuck and spinning out one by one regardless of car make or model... after three OPPs, countless people willing to help without the means, tow truck finally arrived and helped us get rid of $60
just got home now, 12:36... we left at 4:30.. can you believe it
oh, first time the go pro went out (which we lost and found), despite conditions I think it filmed it pretty well
