Snow Hits Vancouver

In a row

There seemed no better way to spend a free Saturday than to check out some of the early snow on Vancouver’s local ski hills (well, one of them anyway — there’s only so ambitious a guy can be), and I can safely say it didn’t disappoint.

The snow at Cypress was nearly Whistler-grade, with fresh powder almost a half a metre deep in places, with a base of nearly 2 metres, and plenty more coming down during the day. And to think I’d nearly driven two hours to break in my new Whistler Blackcomb Edge card, when it was this good right next to home.

Imagine my surprise, however, at around 3:30pm when my poor out-of-shape legs weren’t going to tolerate any more boarding for the day, when I drove back down the mountain towards the city only to find that the snow . . . wasn’t stopping. Nor did it stop even upon reaching sea level.

Granted, it wasn’t sticking to anything then, but now, looking out at my car, it’s nearly completely covered.

. . . As was the cat, who chose not to come inside when originally called. A nice dusting of snow on his head sure changed his mind.
