Nahhhh @DarkWeb these early season days are the only way I can ski top to bottom/bell to bell on a pow day. It's all just practice for a pow day for me :hump:
I'm the same, any shit day on the hill is a better day than on the couch.
A die hard I've been called;
rain boarding, barely there coverage, you name it I'll ride.
All in prep to chase my Whistler local pal down top to bottom runs at whistler and blackcomb in about 15-16 minutes.
Low ground flying is more like it.

I aim for 30 days a season at minimum.
My riding pal aims for a million vertical ft in descents a season.

I was up there a few years ago for the month end of January month of February, I would try and end my day with top to bottom Dave Murray Downhill. The burn in your thighs at the end of the day was intense. Sometimes you would be thankful for a bottleneck so you cheat and take a 30 second break so you navigate the cod slalom situation.

Lol
I wish!

I work hard all year to be able to just barely afford it. I think tickets are $208 a day pass at WB. I buy a 5 day pass for $500 preseason rate.
I'm also lucky enough to get gifted 50% off tickets from staff at the hill.


Going up tomorrow just to lap cord at Cypress for the first two hours and be home before lunch!

This is my first season since '93 I've had to buy a pass. It's nice, I think I'm gonna like it. I know I'm going to miss it.

What did You do in the industry?
@BobBitchen What didn't I do......never sold tickets......ah it's not over....Just for now. Wife said it's my dirty x-gf I keep going back to lol. Mostly coached or instructed but also some tech, bootfitting, gear retail, designed and help design gear that has been sold everywhere....but mostly teaching, it's been my winter thing for a long time....and evolved into what my life revolves around. Been balancing two professions for a while. I've also done a lot of welding and fab work for some places. Man the more I think about it there's so much more in those years. :blsmoke:
