Why is is very good when it rains in Vancouver.

I love the rain in Vancouver in the fall. It means snow on the local mountains and that means snowboarding.

This could be a banner year for early-on-the-mountain. As I write this, Blackcomb is open, and locally, my season-pass-hill, Cypress is talking about opening next week.

This is good.

This is better than good.

Bring on the rain.
