G3 Engineer Rob Moore was aching for some pre season turns last weekend, and just had to decide what local zone would hold the most snow. They chose the Callaghan Valley, about 1.5 hours from G3's office, and were rewarded with a full day of skiing up and down Journeyman Peak, even if there was some rough going spots along the way.
The front page of the Saturday Globe and Mail (a national newspaper in Canada), featured a nice image from an article on the "Most Incredible Dog Challenge", that was taking place in Whistler on the weekend. Shown front and center was the reliable and extremely durable AviTECH shovel, Gwen Milley and Chilii.
"Canine competition at Whistler has promoters and pet lovers dreaming of Spot and Fido chasing Olympic gold some day."
The CAC issued a Special Avalanche Warning for the South Coast today. Global TV's Eric Szeto was up on the local mountains, and ambushed us as we headed out for an early morning ski this morning on Mount Seymour.
Obviously all of the on-camera practice I had recording all the G3 product videos paid off, and I was rewarded with 13 seconds of fame:
The snow is starting to fall! The local webcams all show white and a small amount of snow now covers the North Shore mountains. Over the next couple of days Whistler is set to receive 70- 85cm, and Mt. Baker 140-185cm! If the freezing levels can stay low, it shouldn't be long before we can get out on the snow.
