Canadian heatwave snow

I had a great Sunday, starting with work work work, with some progress I think, then went skiing, and finally returned to have a nice sauna and a swim at the hotel. And afterwards met some fun new Argentinians from my meeting at a late reception.

And yes, I did find snow after a long heat wave here in Montreal. Maybe a six meters long stretch, perhaps even as much as seven :-)

Thanks to Patrick Corcoran and Greg Rich who kept me updated on the melt in Saint-Sauveur; thanks!

This Backcountry Mom’s Video Is Hilarious

In typical gals night fashion, Donna Armstrong and Carole White got together to chat about their daughters over a couple of margs. Apparently their girls, Alex Armstrong and Ginny White, “rip the shit” out of two planks. Not surprisingly, like mother like daughter, it's clear that the passion for skiing is shared by the whole family.

If for whatever reason skiing doesn't work out for him (though it sure looks like it will!), Andri Ragettli might want to pursue a career in Parkour. His pre-season workout involves a whole lot of creativity and athletic prowess, and most of those moves look like they translate to snow in one way or another. Who else wants to set up a course like this at their gym?

Exploring Pemberton’s Pillows with Pep Fujas

Pep Fujas may be one of the most understated skiers in the game, effortlessly styling technical pillow lines, throwing big tricks off natural airs, and making it all look so easy. Oh. And he’s been doing it longer than most. Last winter, he headed deep into the woods of B.C. and found a fresh angle to an old zone, doing the usual: blasting endless pillows. The skier takes some time to analyze the new zone and walks us through what it takes to make it all look easy. RELATED: Pillow Popping and
