OK, so I’m going to let you in on a little secret but you have to promise not to tell anyone else. You know those big powder dumps we’ve been having lately? Well, sticking to the main runs, admittedly, the fresh un-tracked stuff down the middle only lasts for a few runs before everyone has already skied through it and while you can still find un-tracked fresh powder on the far edges, where there are a lot of other Powder-Hounds out there with you, even that can diminish. There is usually plenty to be found in the trees for those who comfortable heading to the inbound glades, but not everyone likes skiing in the trees.
It might be snowing but the Big White Staff aren’t afraid to take on the anti-bullying campaign! Big White’s front line staff brave the cold with Boomer the kangaroo, the Loose Moose and two young guests at the resort, Jenna & Mia Stacey. The Moose and Boomer will be touring the Kids Centre, the Happy Valley Day Lodge and the Big White Community School to raise awareness and collect donations. All donations will be sent to the “Bullying Stops Here” Campaign at the boys & girls club in the Central Okanagan.

Last weekend started with a picture-postcard day, complete with amazing blue skies on Saturday. The Skoolers were stoked to have a day without lessons and a day on the hill working on the skills they have worked on it the last few weeks. At last lifts (3.30pm) a load of us had planned to meet at the top of the T-bar to watch the sunset, so we all grabbed a few beers and headed up there. It was awesome at the very top of the mountain, especially as there was such a big group of us! Afterwards a lot of the crew headed back to their apartments but a few turbo-ed over to the park to have a few runs on the kickers and exploit Keepo’s photography skills to the max! Later in the evening, it was the UFC finals so loads of people gathered at Sam’s to watch the game and grab some food while a few chilled at home – with the final week of training looming before the Level 1’s, lots of the crew are getting nervous and staying in to read their manuals!
