The video of the backcountry skiing looks AMAZING!! I'm jealous and would love to have the time to do that!.

 

I suppose I'll have to wait till next winter seeing as this last academic term of engineering is quite intense.

Too funny! I just went skiing yesterday... although we made the trek our from Surrey to Manning Park. It's a longer drive but the tickets are dirt cheap, there are no lines (or people throwing snowballs at you from the lifts!), and the snow/terrain quality is amazing!

 

The same is true of Hemlock Valley, which is a little closer and cheaper than Manning.

You should totally try them sometime, if only just to say you did.

 

...I swear I don't work for them. lmao

Glad you had fun =)

I grey up in Harrison & Hope so I learned to ski on Hemlock & manning. I need my big mountain terrain though. Might be fun to go back for nostalia sake though. This weekend at Whistler was just a perfect storm of busy, I went last week on a weekday, not a single line.

ahh! I assumed it was grouse or cypress. Although looking at the comic now, that's clearly Whistler isn't it? I do love the larger mountains... Haven't been able to find the time or money to ski them recently though. :(

Sorry... I will explode if I do not say it...

 

That's not how you spell rediculous.

Might not be how you spell it, but it's how most people with a dictionary do... unless they want to be objects of 'redicule'!

Well, I'm just glad to have been able to enlighten you! And if you look through it, you'll find that the Urban Dictionary is pretty good...

oh noooes,

I wanted to watch the video of the backcountry skiing

but, noo, since I'm from Germany it says... this video has content of umg and is not available in your country... meh sometimes it sucks living in Germany

 

I cannot say how often the video was not available in my country.. or that spotify doesnt work... or that we get dubbed movies...a rgg

 

sorry, that little thing got out of hand and changed into a rant about everything ;)

I love it. If you layer right it's actually not that cold and if you go to the smaller hills lift tickets are dirt cheap, the staff are really nice and welcoming, and there's also the benefit of no lines.

Actually during my winter break I went to Austria to a smallish hill in Tirol/Tyrol to a place called Kaunertal Valley, the staff were really hospitable and cheerful (and one of the waitresses kind of looked like Catherine Bell), lodging was quite cheap and tickets were only 80 EUR for 3 days.

If your timing is right, just about any theme park that's open on a weekday after Spring Break and before schools let out for summer is an AWESOME theme park with NO LINES. Seriously, the longest we waited for a ride was about 3 minutes, and often times you can just stay on the ride and ride it until you puke.
