oh wow.

Not being mean, but today might of been my greatest day at sunshine. 30cm of blower and wind lips up to my chest. Holy, coming out with a video, i was using my gopro. i lapped strawberry 15 times in 1 hour in the morning. I felt like shit by noon and went for a couple of banff ave's. Again, wtf. Nobody was there and i had a clear pow field to myself. I love Mondays. December, 3 marks sunshine's very best day, because the pow didn't disappaer30 mins.

Week day pow. There is nothing better! Back in the day when I had tuesday and wednesday off I used to love a 20cm pow day. Fresh lines all day long. Not quite as good on a saturday or sunday!

So many runs so little time.

With 30cm of new snow, why the hell would you lap Strawberry 15 times? That's the worst place on the entire hill unless you're my daughter, but she's 8. i'm assuming you aren't a complete beginner based off of your other posts. You need to expand your horizons just a little bit....it doesn't make me angry that I wasn't there to ride the great pow, but it does make me sick to my stomach to think you wasted such a good day on Strawberry! That better be one hell of a video clip.

Yeah strawberry's for girls...

Also with 45 minutes of those 15 laps being on the lift, you're saying you can make it down in 1 minute including strapping in? I call BS unless you post a GPS tracklog that says otherwise!

BTW I was at Lake Louise today and the snow was great in many places, but visibility sucked. It was a good day overall but if we had that snow, no lift lines, and bluebird it could have been one of my top 5 days!

LOL nope! I just don't take much time off in the summer. I save up my days and make the most of the winter! Not sure where I'm heading this weekend. Unless it snows heavily I'll probably work the next 4 days. You heading out? I need to get some more rock gouges in my board! Glad the new one's on the way because my current board is quickly turning into a rock board...
