    mid winter pow at Blackcomb in April!

    This ain't no April fools joke either! We've had over 20 ft of snow in the last month and currently skiing a 4 meter base! Chainsaw ridge is skiing like a big bowl these days.

    Ratcliff skis what was a fairly big cliff drop into a chute just last month. Now your mom could ski it.

    Slicer drops in and gets neck deep straight away!



    All hell breaking loose around Slicer on the way down!





    Smut sluttin it up

    Not bad for spring skiing!

    Here's a few more from a big slog out to Fissile Peak to ski summit chute. Probably one of the steeper lines to ski around Whistler and we were lucky to get it in blower pow. It was a bit of redemption for Postman who tomahawked the entire thing a few years ago. Nice job Phil!

    the long slog awaits

    Color me jealous. You guys get Apruary while we're stuck with Apruly.

    Summit chute remains one of my all-time most memorable runs, we lucked out and skied it in waist deep blower, some of the deepest turns of my life.

    P11, would you guys please send the jet stream back down south for next season? Thanks and enjoy the goods. You guys got them in spades this season. O, and great pictures, thanks.

    Looks like some folks got away with the LeeLau traverse down at the bottom left of the photo... might seem like a nice short cut, but you're asking for trouble in that zone!
