Well the ski season is drawing to a close for most of B.C. and one of my favorite times of the year is just beginning. Spring brings an exciting time filled with slushy jump laps, warm weather, goggle tans and a chance to reflect on another season passing.
As the leaves fell and the cast on my arm came off it became a daily excursion to take the van down to the arena and load the trailer with snow. This year we tried to do things differently rather than sticking to the casual back-yard rail. With access to a banshee bungee and some shoveling, the town became a playground.

Then once the snow began to fall, it gave no mercy. Within 72 hours over 40 centimeters of snow had fallen in town. Making driving impossible and skiing incredible!

Shortly after skiing in Rossland, my home mountain hosted the annual Fernie Jr.Freesking Competition. I was very excited for this weekend, being on my home mountain and somewhat of a veteran I was extremely comfortable skiing the venues. After 6 years of looking to the top of the podium I finally returned barely ahead of two of my good friends Jayden Starnino and Mitch Grahm. Its always a pleasure to be on the podium with friends.
Now after saving my money throughout the winter it was finally time for the trip Jayden Starnino and I had been planning. We decided to take the week and travel through south eastern B.C with a loose time frame. We made stops in Golden, Revelstoke, Nelson and Rossland before making it back home. One of the key parts of the trip is that we planned to film everything. So with his contour HD and my GoPro and T2i we filmed almost every run.
Here is a compilation of the best footage put in chronological order…..

And here we are. With only two weekends left our ski hill will be closing with a base much greater than 4 meters. There will be plenty of ski touring for the months to come I’m sure. A huge thank you to LINE and SCOTT for treating me so well, it is an honor to represent both companies.
For the Rest of Dylans season, check his skiers union account!
