Last weekend of the season!
Last weekend of the season!

Just about ready to blast out to the hill for the last couple days of the 2012 season!  The slush cup awaits, as does my first BCIT examination on Monday…soils…booo. Going to try out Pilsner Urquell this weekend.  Apparently it is the original pilsner beer and thankfully isn’t spelt the same way as Steve Urkel. […]

Open Ski Maps
Open Ski Maps
