Okay so flying into Vancouver tonight, when I looked to the South across the delta I saw a MASSIVE mountain. Very prominent and off by itself. Very distinct from the range inland from it.

Is that Baker? If so I had this totally different impression of the area. I didn't think you'd be able to see Baker from the city.

I've got a pic from the plane, but it's not the greatest.

Oh yeah and a European ironing board under my feet!
Haha! Sweeeeet! I'm super stoked to ride some fresh snow tomorrow. We'll give you a call as soon as we get to the parking lot then. I'll be riding up with Timmytard.

Oh, and YES! That is Baker, my friend. We'll be hitting up Baker and Steven's pass on the 8th to the 10th of February. Let me know if you want to join us.

A little Big White edit. Hit that Like button.



And critique the riding if you want.

Well, I had a friggin' blast today. Up on Cypress with poutanen, timmytard, and kung-pow. A little wet in the morning, but snowed all day, and it was getting deep by the time I had to leave. At one point we found ourselves riding along inches from the edge of a significant cliff. OK, I'm awake now!

Yeah great day! I just made it back to my hotel. Everything is soaked but I'm still in one piece. It's still snowing up there.

Fuck, it just got better & better. We tried to leave a few times, but every run was so much better than the last, we stayed til about 8 & even then it was hard to leave.

It cleared up & continued to dump, by the end you could go anywhere & not bottom out on ice.

Tomorrow will be wicked, if you can see

But ya, kick ass day!!!
Good ridin' with you kids, & I don't think I saw Charles all day

Tomorrow is gonna be so good I think Kung-pow might have got hurt, & probably won't make it in to work again?

Hopefully y'all got some good footy

TT
