It seemed like we waited along time for the storm that rolled into Whistler on Sunday night. Almost the instant the rain turned to snow an excited buzz flowed through the village. As I was out working, watching the flakes fall, I became more and more pumped for the powder day to come.

Although snow was forecast throughout Monday, it turned into a stunning bluebird day. With limited lifts open I was surprised to see how well the slopes held up. We were a little late uploading, however we still managed to put in some amazing turns while admiring the stunning scenery at the same time.

Taken with my old point and shoot, it's looking a lot more like winter around here.

After I came off the hill I didn’t want to stay inside on such an incredible day. I decided it would be a great idea to go for a cross country bike mission to see if “Cut Yer Bars”, the trail closest to my house, was still ridable. As it turns out, it is, and I got fresh powder tracks from start to finish! BOOM!!!
