canada eh

I suppose it is time for an update! Here we go!

I finally got myself a job! I'm working in a Chocolate Shop in Whistler Village, and I start my training tomorrow! It will be evenings and weekends type work and it will allow me a lot of time for skiing and snowboarding.

The snow situation here is shocking. Last week there was a huge dump of snow and it was going so well that the mountain decided to open up early on Saturday! We were in Vancouver on Friday for the night, so didn't get to go on the slopes till Sunday. Walking to the bus and to the gondola in the rain wasn't very reassuring one bit, but once we got to the top of Whistler Mountain the snow was lovely (for early season snow that is!) and everything was good! Got a run in and then the winds started! It was like a blizzard up there, white out! You couldn't see a thing and it was so windy you could put your arms out and get blown to where you wanted to go! (as long as that was the direction of the wind)

All the lifts were then put on standby as they were getting thrown around too much, so we decided to head home and call it a day. After all we had 6 months on the snow!

Besides the uneventful trip to Vancouver this weekend, we haven't been up to much! Gotta go now and get some sleep for work tomorrow!
