I have alot of relatives whom live in Vancouver and Victoria B.C.

Might spend a few months there during the snow season....

Adjusting to the new place would takes some time, but it will work it. Just need to get a working visa and finding a job while I am there.

What's your closest reasonable mountain in driving time? From Calgary, right?


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Anyone lives or been to Pemberton?

It is supposely 45 minutes drive to Whistler/Blackcomb.

My sister has a condo there and she said I can stay there if I wants to. Planning a Whistler trip, but I will probably need a car from Pemberton t Whistler unless there are decent transport to and from that area?

Yeah Nakiska is 1:10 door to door for me (I'm not right in Calgary)
Lake Louise is exactly 2:00 for me
Kicking Horse is 3:15 or so
Fernie is 3:30

Those are just the resorts on my pass, then Castle would be about 2:30 for me, Sunshine 1:30, Revelstoke about 4:00, Kimberly 4:30, Marmot Basin, etc. etc. etc.

I guess there are some in Montana within driving distance too...

Nakiska made it official they are the first to open in Canada for the second year in a row. You have to take the Silver chair up, then you can access the Gold chair and the runs at the top, not sure how to get to the Silver to head back down...

Cool

I won't lie, it is pretty awesome living here and being close to nearly any mountain I desire to explore. You have awesome waves down in Australia though! I would love to dive the Reef someday, maybe next summer.

Japan would be pretty awesome to visit for some riding too.

Ahoy Aminal, I was going to be Zombie Big Bird for Halloween, but I think I'm going to be AMiNal instead! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm also a drummer...do you like to bang on stuff?

Riding is more than just a hobby...it's a lifestyle, much like that of a Shredraptor Circus Show.
