What the hell am I doing here

Yup, that's the question I am asking myself. Back here in Cornwall it's spring. Clear sky with the sun glistening on the sea, grass green, daffodils fluttering and dancing in the breeze ( with respects to Mr Wordsworth) lambs playing in the fields etc - looks like a scene from the Shire in Lord of the sodding Rings.

Just spoken to Lynda on the phone who tried to play down (not very successfully) just how good things are in Fernie as she was about to set out for the hill for yet another day of maximum powder - temp - 2, another 13 cms of fresh, base at about 340 cms etc. When I left she did say she would be taking things easy but from where she says she has been skiing and the fact that she is getting in the Griz bar every evening with our buddies it's doesn't sound like much has changed to me.

All too depressing for me with a few days "stuff" to do here before heading back. Flying Wednesday skiing from Thursday, just hope they leave a little for me.

  1. Well, at least Lynda tried to play it down a bit. I was back in the UK last week for my cousin's wedding and when I spoke to my missus on the phone, she told me that she'd been out and it was thigh-deep! I had to put the phone down on her.

    Mind you, I got my own back on her today. Not sure what the reports were giving it this morning, but it was easily over a foot of the fresh stuff and she had to go to work.

    Quite a bit seemed to be closed this morning (I'm going to start a conspiracy theory that it's done to save some fresh powder for the weekender Albertans) but still lots of great stuff to be had, especially in Surprise trees.
