My First Weekend in Whistler of 07/08
Just when I thought it would never come, my first weekend 6 months after shoulder delivered a cold sunny day with my best friends and light powder.
Jamie telling Calvin and Hobbes how it's going to be.
Of course there was some ice, some rocks and not all the lifts were running. Now my calves, quads and back are screaming. But I can't wipe the grin off my face with steel wool! It's on now, the alpine is open the base is settled and it's all cold smoke from here.
We stared off the day with a few quick laps in Spanky's which was deeper and lighter than I would have expected. After a late lunch we started to hit the typical boot packs. Then finished off the day with tour up to the top of Spearhead.
The run down Husume from there was glorious. We all had fresh lines down the high shoulder into the gut. Sorry no pics of that, it was getting dark and the beer at Merlins was calling!
