a few things we've been up to in the snow...
getting snow off the carport roof is important...
(too bad amanda had already cleared the driveway)
cross country skiing at the BV Nordic centre, halfway up the mountain.
good for days like last week when it hadn't snowed in at least a week, it was above zero in town and rained (!!) and the snow was all crusty hard--no good for downhill, but good for going horizontal.
jon, in perfect form
amanda, not-so-perfect form
and yesterday the hill was closed so we hiked up it anyway, rode down the ski hill and then continued on to the trail to town, which is a 4.9km run that winds its way down the mountain from the base of the ski hill and ends a few streets down and across the tracks from our house
cabin on the trek up
jon and dharma on the trek up
amanda & amy on the trek up
jon, happy to be almost done the hike up
(knowing how worth it the hike will be)
before the pow, surveying the lines
(we beat it)
jon, relaxing in powder
the trail to town
