our mountain (mt washington BC canada) closes tommorow with 6.5m of snow, the past few days have been some of the few in my memory that the parking lots were so full that cars were parked on the mountain road around the first bend.
why would they make such a horrible financial desicion you might ask?
literally, mt washington is home to some of the very few, vancouver island marmots, and may is when the furry little bastards tunnel their way out of the snow to get it on, on our god damned mountain.
due to the fact that there were fewer than thirty of the species left in the wild at the last species assesment for the recovery plan in 08, they decided to enact mesures to protect them, including forcing our mountain to shut down in the midst of what could possibly be the best spring season in all of history.
what do you propose we do?
