Uggg. I have a ski patrol test coming up where we have to take a loaded toboggan through the bumps and we run the set on Aurora.

Sunday it warmed up to 40 degrees. It rained, for 5 minutes. Soft snow then the sun came out. Mogul ripping!!! Love to see the faces of the skiers as I churn past on a snowboard.

Great conditions for sure.
Did you get a look at the mogul field? Large / Small? fluffy / icy?

sabatoa Highlands had some nice fresh Saturday on top of the packed powder from earlier in the week. Today was an annoying rain at the base, but snow on top. I know that sounds crazy but it's true, somewhere halfway up the hill it switched from rain to snow and then from snow to rain as you came down again.

I had a good run from January though this weekend, but I'm not able to go anywhere the next couple weekends because of some class projects. Sucks. So unless I go midweek somewhere I'm on the sidelines until end of Feb. It looks like I'm going to end around 18-20 days for the season.

The exchange rate was netting me a 30% discount, but things are a lot more expensive there. We had a few hundred dollar dinners and one was at a beer, wings and poutine joint. The exchange basically just makes it reasonable.

Airfare in Canada is stupid expensive, whether flying within or coming from the USA. I normally fly Delta to get to Calgary, so no exchange discount. Flying a Canadian carrier can be a pain in the butt depending on connections.

Yep and nothing in Canada makes for an easy trip, nonstop flights, etc.
