We should see if we can get all/most of our Vancouverite brethren to hit up opening day @ the various hills.
Opening day is one of the best days imo, most of the time if the snow has been on the ground for a bit, it hardens up so you don't sink like fresh powder but it's still super smooth fresh lines.
You don't lose your speed as much either, which I think would be a big bonus @ Seymour, but if we all hook up, you local Seymour boys know the good linesanyway, so good times for all!!
Hemlock is usually EPIC on opening day, the don't open when they get a foot of snow like Cypress, they usually wait a bit longer. The last few years have been like 4+ feet of goodness for opening day & Nobody goes there.
Fresh tracks all day until close & you can ride right onto the lift cause there ain't no lift lineup.
Plus I need someone to film me riding off the chairlift, so I can bury that thread.
