On a comfortable yet slightly brisk May 2nd morning, I and my cohorts headed for the slopes of Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler. I have to admit, my skepticism rose as our chair lift climbed up the mountain. For the first few hundred feet, all I could see below my chair lift was a ribbon of death surrounded by rocks, mud and grass.
Much to my surprise (and giddy delight,) once we hit mid-mountain, the month of May ceased to exist as I was surrounded by snow; both on the ground and falling from the clouds!
We spent an entire day exploring the terrain of Blackcomb Mountain. Being a Utah snow snob, it takes quite a bit to impress me.…..skiing powder in May definitely impressed me.
