Or do the classic loop: Riverside to Nordic Centre then up the gravel road to Goat Creek and fly down that all the way back to the hotel in time for happy hour!

Damn, that sucks. What happened?

Well, the percentage of women with beards is the highest in Canada. On the plus side, most of them have two arms.
Lots of biking, hiking, camping, obviously. I only scratched the surface of...

Accidents of North America. An eye-opening read.
04-10-2013, 06:19 PM
Yeah, reading the BC Interior thread it sounds great at Revy.
I picked a lousy weekend to be driving to northern AB instead.

Well that's ironic. Started dumping at Kimberley yesterday on closing day and a half foot new this morning at the base, likely more up top.
Might have to skin up to Easter and poach the lift for...

Season ends this weekend at Kimberley and just in time as half the runs are now mostly dirt and bush. Last year we had over 200 cm base on closing day.
But still fun riding today until it started...

Awesome ski mountaineering accomplishment, Skian. The Royal Group are spectacular.
Can't imagine King George has been skied before on that line. It doesn't get much traffic in the summer let alone...

Great spring ski day at Kimberley. Perfect corn snow, fun times in the sun pit, then good band down at the plaza for après ski !
03-30-2013, 08:27 AM
Cool photos. But going to miss your old user name. It was one of the best on the forum.
Boy, where did winter go? +12 at the top of Kimberley ski hill yesterday. Quadders are out, saw climbers on...
03-25-2013, 09:02 PM
Cool. What's the reason for that? Weather change, or some solar phenomena?
03-25-2013, 01:31 PM
Yeah, just saw that.
Another fatal in Rogers. AlexC has linked his story in the BC Interior thread.
Cool first shot. But tell your buddy to quit with the big arm extensions. Looks like he's hailing a taxi cab or swatting away a swarm of bees! :wink:

Fatality near Kimberley. Might have been sled skier/boarder.
I was sledding up Hellroaring last Monday scouting out ski slopes and there are some major slide paths. Recent snow, wind and then sun...

Apparently another 20 new on Saturday while I was at Whistler, but prepare yourself for spring skiing. The forecast is for way warm by midweek.
Likely going to be frozen groomers in the a.m. then...
03-24-2013, 06:32 PM
That's why I got one. Don't want to ski the long boring approaches, but still happy to skin up to ski once I get there.
Anyone know how the resort is skiing at Revy?
EE and me are coming back from Whistler and thinking of skiing there Sunday. Still winter snow up high?
03-21-2013, 04:54 PM
Someone pushed the reset button on winter at Kimberley. Great pow day. Snow report said 20 cm but more on Easter and OB.
Still lots of fresh at 11:30.
03-20-2013, 06:33 PM
Been snowing all day at Kimbo. Hudge flakes a while ago that look like pieces of bread falling from the sky. Weird.
03-18-2013, 05:48 PM
I thought the inverted riding in a couple pix was intense! ;-)
03-17-2013, 10:31 PM
Here your freakin Paddys Day drunken tray races stoke.
03-13-2013, 06:50 PM
Snow all day yesterday made it feel like winter again at Kimberley. But temps went to +7 at the top of the hill by afternoon today.
Now we're screwed unless it snows a bunch or we have spring...

Looks like another Pineapple Express rolling though B.C. the next few days.
Freezing level even going to hit 2,000 m in Banff, according to EC.
03-11-2013, 03:58 PM
Nice shot! Hope you don't mind but I tweaked it a bit as the camera really underexposed the photo.
Thinking of buying a buddy's old sled: 1996 Arctic Cat EXT-580 EFI.
I'm used to working on cars and know nothing about sleds. Is something this old going to be hard to find parts for?
03-06-2013, 03:36 PM
Lots of time for the hill to recover. It actually started dumping around noon today and turns were already getting softer by late afternoon.
If you do make it out here, holla and we can meet up...
03-05-2013, 08:08 AM
Thanks, just hoping for a dump in the East Kootenays to fix things. Ski school at Kimberley went to Louise yesterday for a ski day as the hill here has been deserted since Sunday.
03-04-2013, 10:58 PM
Thanks for providing a daily update on every little thing that pops into your head!
03-04-2013, 02:18 PM
Thanks, J, this had me concerned.
That's cool! It really does look like a miniature model.
You are smart to realize that you will need different insurance than someone for whom photography is only a hobby. Some people making $$ off their pix try and fool their insurance company, then are...
I'm still laughing from Lee's preamble. Brilliant writing. :biggrin:

Any word on the snow at Pano after the Hawaiian freight train?
Buddy wants to go there and I'm thinking this may not be the week to do it.
03-04-2013, 12:55 PM
True. People always ask me which I like doing the most, and I always answer "both."
03-03-2013, 11:31 AM
Doesn't look that busy at LL or KH today, from web cams at 11:30.
Kimberley hill is fuckered until we get at least a foot of new. Bulletproof groomers or frozen coral reef after last night's cool...
Hey, Sparkle, we had planned to do WW on Sunday and were going to see if you and your guy could show us some of the new lift terrain. But we decided it might also be a bit toasted so went east to...
Warm temps hit Red hard. Was slushy and sticky schmoo this morning almost to the top. Knee ripping stuff other than groomers.
Unless it snows a foot, it is going to be brutal once it finally goes...

39 at SSV, 20 at LL, even 19 at Marmot!
Have fun guys. These Pinneapple Express weather systems always seem to turn out great for the Rockies. Not so much further west.
Couple pix from Revy.
Into the woods....
Drink with Shadam? He can't handle my game. ;-)
Anyone have the good/bad news on Red? Planning to be there tomorrow with my Bro EE.
Pouring rain in Revy town now. Good first thing on the hill with creamy snow. But kept warming up higher and higher and by 1:30 not too far down Stoke it got sticky.
Fun day anyway. It only it...

Moving where, CA?

GS, I'm sure you've mentioned Holt before and the ongoing issues.
Can't believe Lamothe made it his first sled outing.
02-10-2013, 10:21 PM
Junior Freeski Comp at Kimberley this week. Tough conditions with more moguls than pow.
Cool to see kids eight, nine years old ripping it up!
Got some pix for a few parents.

His sled is better than your sled. :biggrin:
(Just a guess.)

Snowing hard on some BC Highways web cams.
What happened to KH's advanced weather data? It's been snafued for a while.
01-22-2013, 10:26 PM
Repo man? Assassin? Angry neighbours?
Snowfall warning for Nelson. Hoping we get some further east, also northeast at Golden?
One free lift ticket Friday at Schweitzer if you drive up in a...
