Ya, Baker is fine for a 1 day trip. It's about 2 hours from van.

I don't have a passport or I'd go with you, but you can come to Cypress when your down. Can't you hear my fancypants Palmer callin' ya?

You shouldn't miss Cypress while your here, it's @ least 3rice as big as the other two mtn's.
Skychair is by far the highest point of any of the mtn's, there's been snowghosts up there for more than a month when even the bottom still had dirt everywhere.
It's a whole different world up there, Seymour & Grouse, as far as I know, don't have anything like this?

Sweet! Yeah I'm going to leave the 23rd as a game time decision, either Baker or Cypress depending on snow... The 25th I'll be at Seymour all day. I might board on the 26th too but I think I'd like to rest my legs before two full days at Whistler on the 27th and 28th!

I'd like to see the Platinum and I know you're just dying to check out the ironing board...

Yeah I was originally thinking about driving. It's about 12 hours if I went through Banff and Revelstoke, more like 14-15 going through Fernie, Nelson, etc. I've got a season pass for Fernie and Kimberley so I could have hit them on the way through, but they company is paying for flights so I can't pass up an 1.5 hr flight instead of 15 hrs on the road!

I will come out your way one of these days, maybe do a Kimberley trip and do a couple different mountains in the area?!?

Not sure if it's different there with the snow being heavy to begin with, but one of my best days last year was a day after rain at Fernie. I thought it would have formed a crusty layer on top as it froze, but it was never freezing rain, so it just soaked into the snow. Boarded through great powder that day!

Yeah, nah, out here it's more like wet snow-crete that is total shit to ride When it gets tracked and groomed they have to write up on the resort website that conditions are "machine groomed death-pack"

Yeah bro! Kimberly is super easy for me as my brother lives there and Fernie isn't too far away at all.
