holy shit!! That is why I don't snowboard on weekends. It was 80 degrees today here in the lovely So Cal mountains. Btw it was probably that warm at Mtn High too, jus' sayin'
Yeah again I think we're lucky in the Canadian Rockies. There are 6+ resorts within 3 hours of Calgary, a city of only 1.2 million with basically no metro area to feed it. We get tourists but even on the worst weekends lift lines are only about 10 people deep.
Christmas is another story but regular weekends are a-ok here! I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually stood in a line at Fernie!
