I like the snow. But -20 is my limit for non necessary winter activities. Way too many days spent shoveling snow in sorels and parkas. That's when I usually consider life choices like moving to oz or New Zealand.

What do you think we are? Freaks who bust out thongs at -10?!

I wear t-shirts at -20 if I'm just going from my truck into a store or work or something. Get your system used to it in November and you won't even feel the cold in January!!!

If it's -20 to -25 or so I'll usually board for about an hour and a half, grab a hot chocolate, go again, repeat. Below that you just have to shorten up the hot chocolate intervals!

Yeah I've got a season pass to the Lake... lol Don't think I'll be heading to Sunshine at all this winter, trying to maximize the pass usage.

Its only logical, yeah i wont pay 60 bucks for a lift ticket, i can just go to sunshine and get more or less same snow and terrain. I think lake is more challenging and harder charging but i cant justify the extra 60 km. Thats like another 45 mins....

Have you done the dive yet?

So many runs so little time.

Not yet... Looks like some of the entrances to the Lizard bowl in Fernie but a longer descent!

Got any free passes you want to spread around? I've got a free day at Louise up for grabs! lol
