On a side note word is that the Lake will open more this weekend. If they open top of the world on Saturday I will be there! Let the punters have the first track at sunshine!

Same here, I used to bitch all the time about the extra 30 mins to louise but when my buddy has to drive 4.5 hrs from edmonton to ride sunshine i feel pretty fucking lucky. We make weekend trips to kicking horse because we think thats far lol

Sounds like a fun weekend, let us know hoiw it is. If you're anything like me you'll be curled up in the fetal position on sunday from all the pain. I used to be able ride 2 days no prob but i can barely do a full day now if its just guys(our significant others are slow and we have to wait)

Im heading to Louise from Edmonton. SSV just isn't worth it opening day, and I am banking on LL opening some more terrain before Saturday to try to steal some SSV customers.

In terms of driving, come winter I normally get up at 4am, drive to SSV or LL from Edmonton then drive back that night.

I was up yesterday for opening. They have heaps of snow and the runs that were not groomed were above the knee. I only got about an hour there but I will be back on Sunday if the temps don't go to crazy!

Yeah I clipped a few stumps and fallen branches etc. Always an issue on opening day. After the weekend everything will be compacted so the next snowfall will cover everything up.

Ahhh. I'm so excited. If the city is any indication of what the mountains is like, this is going to be a SICK season.
