Blackcomb - 2/11 Mostly
« on: 02/11/20, 08:26 PM »

Colder, windier, greyer lower mid mountain cloud layer and high clouds above the Peaks early, so it wasn’t yesterday! Everything else pretty similar – snow, people, lifts, but sadly less brain energy. Did a lot of Glacier bumps, only rode Glacier, Jersey and Crystal during the morning.  Did the P2P ride early afternoon – nice, then just did a few runs to Whistler mid station and Garbanzo with a finish to the base. Quads hurt. Vis most of day good, felt cold but that might have been the winds on some lifts.  Tops of the peaks were pretty grey fuzzy during the afternoon. Hopefully big clear tomorrow.

Other – took a break and had a nice expensive bowl of Stir Fry Vegy Rice. Walk to the lifts the same, parking very similar to yesterday(?).  Lots of locals complaining about the “new” owners – hhhhmmm!

Yeah the Australian one year locals...I paid $15 American for a sandwich the bartender forgot at the Bullwheel at Stevens for an hour. There isn’t any new snow off piste? I’m going to be unhappy!
