OK people, Gaper Day 2013 is upon us; hitting the slopes of Blackcomb this Monday May 27th. Let's make it one to remember, and by remember, we mean staying sober enough to remember anything.
Party in April, sleep in May, as the saying goes. Or is it ski tonnes of slackcountry pow in April, sleep in May. Either way, we're just over half way through the 2013 World Ski & Snowboard Festival in Whistler, and damn has it been a good time so far. (Top image by Stewart Medford. Click to expand)
Kootenay ski resorts such as Red Mountain and Whitewater always open in early December (this past weekend), three weeks later than Whistler and with less snow. To the untrained eye, this would make them seem inferior. But once you’ve been here you’ll understand it’s not about how quick it comes, but how great it is when it does.
