The cold snap enveloping most of Western Canada has some great benefits for those of us who ride and ski the local Vancouver mountains.
Much needed snow has dumped on Mt. Seymour, Grouse Mountain, and Cypress Mountain providing the best conditions we’ve had since early in the season. (I still ride Cypress by choice, but Grouse clearly has the best website, and my kids prefer it).
Oldest son and I spent some quality time together on Cypress earlier this week where I discovered that dad can’t quite keep up with a lanky 17 year old.
We had one interesting ‘media’ moment – waiting in line for the lift, just looking around, I spotted at least 5 GoPro cameras mounted on helmets. I had mine mounted to the front of my board, but was also shooting with a Drift HD hand-held – the photo above is a still from that footage.
If you’re in Canada and are looking for one, check out Launch Helmet Cams based in North Vancouver – they’ll get it out to you quick, have great prices, and superb after sales service.
As official photog and taster, I can attest to the fact that these are really good: Castillian Hot Choc and Churros http://t.co/JrKLk0J9

That was a bit of a haul. Jumped in a cab to the airport in Montreal 11 hours ago in a snowstorm, just in the door now home in Vancouver.
