Spring?

salmo ski hill
There's been a lot of emotionally charged events going on around these parts in the last couple of weeks. RIP Travis, SLB. Heal fast Rusty. Play safe out there kids.....

I was lucky to make it back from Kelowna. My rear wheel bearings bought the farm on the way down the Blueberry/Paulson pass. This in turn super heated the inside of the drum and fried the brake cylinder causing a brake failure...that's what I was fixing on Saturday. 

The riding has been really good but the dreaded high freezing levels have messed things up for the time being. Last week was a friends B-day at the Salmo Ski Hill and we had a great time riding the longest t-bar in North America.(?) There is more than enough time to finish a beer on the way up.

Way back on Valentine's Day I was waiting for my girl to drive back from Calgary so I went out to Ymir for their snow-fest and spent some time playing hockey on the outdoor rink. Good times!

Sorry to hear about what happened lately. Sounds tough.

I'm glad to hear boarding went well! And that ice rink looks FABULOUS! Wow!
