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!
Read this Daily Mirror article discussing "While some resorts struggle, Big White has never had a problem with snow".
"...like the resort itself, it’s a name that does not mislead. This extraordinary phenomenon is the result of the unique snow conditions on the higher slopes of this family-friendly resort in western Canada where nature provides as much fun as any man-made attraction ever could. Take the Snow Ghost Express chairlift (what else?), ski between the trees and set your mind free about the images you can see formed by the dry and light snow sticking layer upon layer to the trees through the winter."
