Closest is 10 mins from my place.

So many runs so little time.

Dammit, you guys are lucky,

In South Africa we have one place, and that is a 4-5 hour drive from Pretoria depending on weather.

I'm about 2 hours away to the closest mountain. Close enough for a day trip, but still too far to get a season pass. I make it out about 15 days in a season, mostly on weekends.

4-5 hours to get to a mountain makes my drive seem like nothing though.

Luckily the mountain is closer than the ocean, ocean is about a 6 hour drive.

40 minutes to Seymour, Grouse, or Cypress; Hour and a half to Whistler or Hemlock; 3 hrs to Baker or Manning.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
