Ran, Evan, Anette, Colin and I had a fun day skiing Cloudburst Mountain. We went up Chance Creek, and took the bench to the west of the notch route. It was pretty windy at the summit, but the ski down the notch was great! It was nice to finally visit this spot after driving past it so many times.

Never underestimate the effects of wind
Best sunglasses ever.

Enjoyable skiing back down the notch
Quite enjoyable actually.
Ran, telemark allstar.
A lazy day, and we're back in Squamish with lots of time to spare. Cloudburst in the mountain outside the window.
It was Ned's birthday, and we went to Chief Pascall again, this time from the Cayoosh parking lot. I had pretty low expections for the day as I woke up in the morning not feeling very well, and it was raining the whole way up the Sea to Sky with no snow in sight. But the skiing up high was some of the best this season. From Ned: "Wowwee! - powder, booze, exercise , sunshine, steep chutes, cakes, backflips, curry, and a great group of people... I don't think i could imagine a better day, It will be hard to top. Thanks for a great day, I feel very lucky to have had such a fun birthday with such a great group of people. (Birthday's are not rarely that fun)"
