    Yeah it’s always the past. Gotta check the upcoming forecast for a guesstimate of incoming snow.

    Went to big white yesterday. Snow was not very good and they need a lot more of it. 20c in Kelowna today so it’s not looking too good in the near future.

    Planning on dusting off the board and heading to Louise this weekend as they have been getting dumped on. Hopefully the snow keeps up and temps don't dip too low on Saturday.

    Just got my skis back from service. Excited to get back into it after about 8 years or so.

    Planning to go on the 27th. I had a guy lined up to wax and edge my board and he flaked unfortunately. I also haven't serviced it myself before, I'd much rather pay someone to do it.

    Where can I go for service that turns around quickly? Most places, like Mission or SportChek are likely a week wait which won't work.

    Unless this is an alpine board and you’re racing… it doesn’t take a whole lot to get it ready to go. Not once have I “tuned” a free ride board’s edges… just take a file to anything super rough. Waxing is very straightforward, only time things get a little crazy is if you have some core shots you want to p-tex. Just grab a few different temp waxes from your local shop along with a scraper, if you have an old iron you’re good to go (can get a finishing brush if you want to get super fancy)

    Just drip the wax on, smear it around, wait for it to cool and scrap off, then buff with a micro fibre if you don’t have a brush

    This is mine. If it was non-christmas holidays I might consider going but I genuinely hate / will always avoid now until after New Years. Though I guess if its this cold then the hills would be quieter.

    I don’t like sub -25… snow is too slow, never seem to have any rub on cold temp wax handy those days either

    I generally avoid anything below -15 these days unless my friends really pressure me or it’s a crazy pow day.

    We were going to do Sunshine, but unfortunately, we decided to cancel anyways. No way we're riding in -40 wind chill. Too old and wise to tough it out haha.

    I appreciate the offer though.

    Heading to sunshine Monday, should be interesting, taking way more breaks to avoid calf cramps. Looking forward to it, fingers crossed boys.
