dump

The day begins early for the drivers. Start digging Zepp.

While our guests are eagerly rising to head down to the restaurant for their big cooked breakfast we have a dedicated team of workers up bright and early to get the vans ready to shuttle everyone to the resorts. This morning it was all hands on deck as it had not stopped snowing at all. The road clearers usually come around early however because of the massive amounts of snow they have had to clear the main roads first and our quiet little street was not done. We first had to dig out the cars and then create our own track to get them down onto the main road. Tough work but we got there and our guests were able to get to the resort for first lifts.  I was able to get a few runs in myself with top to bottom, dry bottomless powder.  Once again people were struggling with the conditions.

This skier was up to his chest in powder. Be careful where you ski into.

    Dear god it looks amazing!
    I’ve been watching the cams at happo pile over with pow and am finding my self checking every few hours and I’m not due at whitehorse for 45 days!

    Can’t say I’ve ever ridden pure pow before, so I think going off those pics and your comments on people having trouble in the deep that I need to find a resource on riding pow!

    I’m here to help you along the way. This was one serious dump and the first time I experienced one of these I had to learn how to board all over again. good times though. Squats and cardio are your friends for now. (maybe some beer exercises as well for the apres)
