Wow! Just saw this on weather network. Looks like the heaviest stuff will be north of good resorts around Prince George, but KH, Revy, and others should get pounded too. Anybody in Sunpeaks right now? Looks like they may catch some of the heavy stuff.

Still have just over a month until I head across the boarder for Nelson and Whitewater, build that base!
Well Revy was saying this is their best season ever so far this year and that was before this storm. They have only been open for 10 years but still that is really good. So I'm sure Nelson/Whitewater will be good in 30 days. I will be in Fernie at that time so I'm praying for snow in that area too.

This is Revy from 2 weeks ago, before the new storm. I $#@!^ love Canada !!!

Coincidentally, I just got home from work and found an envelope addressed to my wife from Revelstoke Mt Resort in the mailbox. She was hurt skiing and we had to visit the patrol clinic there. I was thinking worst case scenario: a medical bill for her clinic visit? She asked me to open it, and it turns out it was a very nice follow-up letter from the lady who was staffing the clinic just following up on wife's injury. Super nice people all around town and the resort. What an amazing place. Wish I was still there.

I just got back from riding 40cm at Sunshine. Some of the best turns of my life, but fuck me why did I not get a Lake Louise pass as well this season :facepalm2:

Sunshine does not handle that much snow well. Especially super cold, slow snow. Not enough steep runs, at least not enough when lifts are opening one by one so the crowds follow the newly opened lifts. I was there until 4.30pm and did 11 runs. Normally I call it a day around 2.30 at 20-25 runs. Bonus is I'm more in love with the Archetype than ever, only reason I lasted all day. Friends dropped like flies, and even on the cat tracks or ski out, I was overtaking every one. It's super satisfying to casually glide past a skier who's skating and using their poles >:) Fantastic base on this board, and it absolutely slays the steep and deep.
