Daylight savings time. A concept I've never really understood, and one I've never been a fan of. But, as per some sunlight-equalizing ritual which was created who knows when, tonight I will set my clocks ahead an hour. And no doubt I will curse when 6:00am comes around - because it is actually 7:00am and that's what time I have to get up to go skiing.
Speaking of skiing.... Today we skied at Sunshine, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The conditions are marginal, similar to most ski hills in Alberta and BC - fresh snow is scarce and unseasonably warm temperatures are quickly depleting the snow pack. However, we were still able to find some areas with decent coverage and had a great day!
|We spent a few hours in 'The Dive' today!|
Since the skiing itself wasn't exactly stellar, the atmosphere of Trapper's Lodge easily sucked us in today and kept us entertained longer than it usually does. We (and by we I really mean I) enjoyed a few too many runs down 'Delirium Dive' (see the pic, above).... and when we finally peeled ourselves from our barstools a couple of hours later, I had some seriously interesting real-life runs... Note to self: Ten rum'n'cokes with lunch is about nine too many, especially when you're at the top of Goat's Eye.... Oy.
In the end, I was just fine. We skied until the lifts closed, and the plan now is to eat/sleep/repeat. Can't wait!
Set your clocks ahead people!
