It’s been a busy February in Whistler and the Olympics are truly underway, resulting in a very quite mountain and a very busy town, the atmosphere is amazing.  There are lots of free gigs going on, Swollen Members played the other night with skiers and snowboarders jumping through rings of fire behind them and a huge snowball fight in the crowd, pretty awesome.

The mountain itself has been so quite all month and with amazing snow conditions and blue skies I have managed to get out touring and hiking a fair amount.  I have been eyeing up Fissile, all winter and set out for a mission with a couple of mates, it was very cloudy but we hoped the light would break through, it didn’t.  I managed to get a bluebird day out to Decker Mountain with friend Martha Burley who was over from Fernie, introducing me to two local photographers, Amy McDermid and Delaney Zayac, a perfect tour with fresh tracks and sweet terrain.

Few other odds and ends going on, myself and flatmate Claire Hughes have been going to Trampolining at Whistler Gymnastics.  Hoping to improve our park riding, we are shown up every week by the group of fourteen year old boys we go with, but got the front flips dialed now – yet to try them off a cliff…
