They also had a nightmare 10 hour drive to Big White (instead of the usual 4.5 hrs) due to pass closures.
Hope Bannick and bride are safe, with tired legs and faces hurting from grinning ear-to-ear for a week.
C'mon dood, share the wealth - I told y'all about my adventures at Mountain Creek. . .
We are alive...back in Seattle this week....it was the most snow I have ever seen. Day one was only 2" overnight after like 60" the week before....mid day monday the snow started. I think it ended up being somewhere around 40" total by Friday morning, our last day but when you factor in wind transport it was over my head in places. On tuesday they only ran chair 5 as the winds were crazy. It was socked in and beautiful and kept the crowds away.
The patrolers were basically forbidding people from going OB off the hemispheres and the arm. I had never seen them so jumpy. The had patrolers with radios watching for rope duckers and were pulling tickets at the bottom.
Closed the road up a mile from our cabin on Friday night due to avalanche danger....it slid early morning burying the road. Baker was closed on Sat but reopened for the banked slalom finals on Sun.
More details with limited pics soon.
Yes we are grinning and you bet we are sore....off to the ocean today.
