It's March Now!

Here comes your Whistler weather update: it has not been a great season, yet still somehow we have received over 9m of snow! Last weekend we saw a Pineapple Express come through the area. This left the lower mountain soaked in rain, and the top closed. On Sunday when it cleared the top was blanketed under one meter of fresh. The peak was completely remade, features filled in, and one of the craziest Peak Chair huckfests ever ensued.

That day- and another tasty day on February 25- have yielded a new video edit for all to enjoy...

I think that the overall weather message is that mostly we are getting dumped on in large batches, one meter last week, tons of snow in December, but scant to report in between. This weather pattern has left me most mornings sipping coffee and cursing the jet stream, with no rush to get to the mountain. This overall attitude is probably why I've been crashing so much. I don't have my stomping hat on. Legs of steel-- in development.

Although rumored to be saving up footage in order to drop a sack of hammers on our heads, Dan has had this mini edit sneak out thanks to Kris Yavorsky. Location unknown, but it sounds like they banged this off through one half day in BC. Leaving tasty pillows like these behind must make for a long drive back to University of Calgary.

Peace to all! Brapp brapp.

My Best-of Clips from Last Winter

Hello All,
Last season was super rewarding, lots of pow with lots of friends. 85 days of worthy skiing at Whistler Blackcomb. I desperately wanted to get to 100! It just didn't happen. Enjoy my re-edited highlight reel of my favourite shots from last season. See you on the mountains soon.

Next up, check out these rowdy snippets of my brother Dan loosing his mind skiing pillow lines in the secret zone in the Rocky Mountains.
