Stoked to see the PNW get a return to winter and everyone getting after it.  It's been a while since the local Vancouver mtns have gotten a significant dump with a sustained period of low freezing levels, but this holiday week has been it!  Haven't felt the need to drive more than 30 min from downtown Van for the past few days.  Huge storm over the weekend followed by rapid consolidation and cold sunny weather = good times!

OK views, I guess

Your videos are GREAT.

The Hollyburn reminds me of tree skiing on the backside of Stevens Pass. Nice tight lines.

The Cypress backcountry line was beautiful. Thanks for showing us what is near TOWN.  Wink

Thanks Zap!  Being from the east, I'm always blown away by how close to town this stuff is.  It's not often this good, but when it is, there's no need to go anywhere else.

That looks fantastic, you know it's good when you are on cold smoke at sea level!
