I've come to really appreciate the snow at   Lots of powder,  with a little weight to it, so you  don't just sink into it on board.    Not as cold as the Rockies, either.

Here I am at  the midmountain lodge on Blackcomb Mountain.
This was the year that I got hit on the back of the head by a lift char.  I was riding up with Max, who was on his second year of snowboarding, and he fell at the top of the lift.  Easy to do on a single speed lift on  a board.  I was trying to help Max stay up, but he took me down with him.  I sit up, and BAM, the following chair hits me.   Fucking liftie just stood there  & didn't even move to slow down the lift.  Asswipe was probably stoned.  I went and screamed at the head of lift operations, but she didn't really seem to care.  I guess since Canadians don't have punitive damages, they are comfortable letting stoned kids operate ski lifts.    Henceforth, I always wear a helmet.   Actually it's for the better, because I have more confidence when I am riding through the trees, where the really awesome fresh is.
