Another great day skiing. Today is on Copper Mountain.

Drove to Colorado to ski with DTK. First day was winter park. Good conditions.

Great day skiing.



Whistler Backcomb day two. More great sun and snow


Day two on the mountain started out fine, then a slight wrinkle. The Whistler symphony bowl chair did not work and Doug and I had to hike 1.2 KM out to harmony lift to continue the day.

At the end of the day I skied out the Blackcomb glacier. I took a pretty difficult turn at one time and had a difficult time heading down a steep head wall. I private ski instructor took his group down after me and behind me. His group had no trouble heading of the steep face I had just inched down.




Whistler then Blackcomb on day one


Great conditions with over 120cm of new snow!

Colleen fell and caught her thumb under her ski and broke it on the first run. Dr Nelson the mountain orthopedist for the day gave her a splint and that ended Colleens day.

I ended the day on Blackcomb sking just great runs on shower lines. The early Saturday lines were record ing.

Rain all the way from Seattle. Rain in whistler village means snow on the mountain! 120 centimeters!

Doug and Colleen and Irene take up pinochle to wind down after the ride up in the rain.

Entry for January 02, 2009 – skiing at Mt Shasta with Mark, Irene, Andres and Doug


Had a great day skiing at Mt Shasta.

First time I skied there. Three not detachable lifts.

There was a small base of like two feet with about 3 to 4 inches on the top of powder so it was OK skiing. The weather was nice. So we all had a good time, got tired came back for a great meal.
