It is hard to describe the last ski day of the year. So many mixed emotions. Celebrating with so many familiar faces that have added so much joy to the year, but also realizing that the season has now come to an end.
There was a lovely end-of-the season gathering today just off Glades run, where people had carved a huge snow bear, and were cooking up a storm. Barbecue’s sporting chicken breasts, lamb sausages and more! Quite the treat. The skies were blue and the snow was great, still at this late date! What a fantastic season we enjoyed this year.
I write this report because it is important for me to share just how much exercising outdoors can really change your winter, and your mood. Often in the Lower Mainland we have overcast and rain throughout the winter season, and up on the mountain it is frequently brighter. Also back at home we tend to not get outdoors when it’s dreary, whereas skiing and boarding pushes us to do that . . . and enjoy it!
