Got the chance to go to Baker on the 1-3rd of March... I was dead set keen until I saw it is going to be 'heavy rain' the night before we leave. Will be my only chance to go see Baker though

Heavy rain? I don't think so.

If you decide not to go, I will bug you everyday because you missed probably the best days you'll ever have.

Remember that tiiiiiime, when you were supposed to go to Bakeeeeeer,
but di int, cause you thought it was gonna rain?

Then it snowed like 4 feet & you were @ home playin' captain cord puller.

Do you remember that?

Yeah I know, my mates would never let me live it down. Though, the top is forecasting for +1 and a +3 at the mid so either way it's going to be pretty damn heavy snow

I guess staying in Whistler isn't a exactly the worst thing

Default Vancouver 12-13 Season

So, last weekend at Hemlock with timmytard... after riding through the dump on Saturday, we got up there at about 9 and had tons of fresh tracks. Wide open carves through some open steeps. Snow was heavy but it was still prettt sweet. Lots of other side of the rope riding across some big cliffs and gullies.

Some shots of Sunday:

timmytard doing a drop and ride down a steep with a coffee in hand and a smoke between the lips - no spill. Reminded me of Julian or the Lebowski... "CAREFUL, MAN. THERE'S A BEVERAGE HERE!"

Couldn't get into my YouTube account and I only have an iPhone.


This weather is making me giddy! Cypress tonight! Possibly earlier looking at this work day... Whistler and Baker this weekend methinks! Anyone else?

Somehow this doesn't surprise me at all!

Hopefully some of that moisture makes it's way to us in the next few days.

Baker was epic today, they only opened the 6 chair for a couple hours in the morning though. It was snowing sideways all day, heavy storm winds, tracks filling in as fast as they were being made. Tomorrow will be better.

They are predicting a storm coming thru on Sunday night so Monday should be awesome. Was up Seymour Fri am after a huge dump Thurs night.....unfortunantly it was pretty heavy and slow snow.

Whistler was epic today.....sunshine and tons of pow stashes
