We have had plenty of snow over the last week with one day receiving up 30cm. Lisa and myself were the only two to take advantage of the fresh powder. (The rest of the crew were too sick, too tired, too hung over.........dhh,dhh,dhh...) The fresh powder is certainly what we came to Canada for. Lots of snow also means that we have plenty of snow to shovel off the driveway. (The price you have to pay for good skiing....)
Tony and Dave both had a go at skiing for a day. For Tony it looked like he had never been off them and he had a great time - so great that he was even looking at buying a set of skis. I wish I could say the same about Dave. The Big Fella looked like a complete Gumby - which I found hilarious as he used to be such a great skier, his comment was once I can't Snow Board anymore I'll be playing golf.
09/01/2008 - 11/01/2008 - We all headed up to Big White for 2 nights all 13 of us (9 adults and 4 children) all with snowboards or skis and luggage in two cars, so as you could imagine there was no spare room anywhere. Big White looks just like all the postcards and was true to form - the first day of skiing / snowboarding you could hardly see two feet in front of you and there was powder everywhere. The Elford's all did a mountain tour with a volunteer host on the first day. He decided to show us a lot of the runs that went through the trees and that had powder up to my chest - so if you fell over it was quite a huge effort to get back up (okay not for all of us).
