- I had an amazing day with my old university riding group a couple years back at Jay Peak... Only time I've ever rode with a group of people all roughly my level. Was a blast!

- May 6, 2012 at Lake Louise, bottom of the mountain was slush, top of the gondola was solid ice, thought it was going to be shit. Headed to the top of the platter and found the powder that never melted and refroze! Was riding in 12" deep powder down 100% slopes in May!!!

- Dec 19th 2011, was puking snow out, we were heading for Lake Louise but decided the roads were too bad, turned off and went to Nakiska "just to take a couple runs and see how it is"... Turns out there was 8" of fresh at the bottom and over a foot at the top, played all day in perfect fresh powder! Fantastic!

It's so tough to pick one day though. I used to have a blast with my friend at blue mountain a few years ago... Another day I was at Fernie when they finally opened the bowls after a 4 foot dumping of snow, another day I did 87 km on snow at Lake Louise, how do you pick a bestest!?!
It is hard and you just reminded me of another Bestest Day, the crazy thing is it didnt involve powder. It was my bachelor party at BAKER 17 years ago (yes, still married), My best man and best friend of over 30 years rented a cabin for 15 of our buddies. It was a bluebird March day, what a blast rippin up that mtn, it also goes down as my most memorable meal. We went to Costco and bought a 10lb bag of meatballs, spaghetti, couple gallons of spaghetti sauce and about 10 loafs of garlic bread. The dinner was good, but the next morning we still had 4 loafs of bread and a couple lbs of meatballs, so we scooped out some of the bread and filled all four loafs with the meatballs, after riding hard all morning we couldnt wait to get to the van and have lunch, that was my best meal ever.
