When we got all that rain last week in Whistler, I thought we were done for eh. It was a full monsoon pretty high up and my brother Dwayne and I thought we were gonna have to move back to Calgary for the season.
It just totally dumped there eh.
But now that the sun’s out and we’re walkin’ around, the boardin’s actually really frickin’ good up high.
And the Stamps won the cup on Sunday, so unless you’re a powder-hatin’ Tigercats fan, it was a pretty epic weekend.
Dwayne was so sure the boardin’ would be crappy on Sunday that he didn’t even wanna hit the slopes. He just wanted to stay at home and do prep for his world famous Grey Cup nachos (he makes ’em with All Dressed chips eh).
But he was pretty fired up once we got up in the alpine and saw how filled in it was.
“Some of these lines are more filled in than they were last season eh,” he said.
And he was right eh.
It’s still really haggard below 1800 metres , but that didn’t stop Dwayne and I from riding all the way down to Lot 7 on Blackcomb. We only had to take our boards off once eh.
Better than downloading, like Edmonton Eskimo fans.
