Lots of stuf to write today

So I am feeling like writing a real blog post today.

  1. Toronto Star wrote about Lost and 24 finale and I never expected a spoiler tag on printed edition of newspaper.
  2. The topic of summer snow camp was brought up in a conversation today. It is about snow sport camps in the west coast mountains. No, I am not that crazy yet. Or, rather, "hardcore".
  3. A couple of farewells in upcoming months. Kinds feel sad over that, one moving to Vegas and one to Seattle. :(
  4. They are adding keyboards to Rock Band 3. GF+DM+KBM+vocal session anyone?
  5. So hot last weekend. Two years ago it was snowing in the same weekend.
  6. Writing up a bucket list now.
That's all.

Things happening now.

Now, winter is over before we knew it. Time for a recap.
  1. I originally planned a trip to Quebec, which never happened. It is too warm to worth the trip.
  2. I can do the more difficult ski runs now.
  3. No, I did not watch Winter Olympics men's snowboard halfpipe. Everyone knew that the Flying Tomato would have won.
  4. Bought a bunch of game, and moved away from World of Warcraft.
  5. hooked up with a ski buddy.

The Fall

It is not snowing yet.
And it appears that weather has been like fall since like July. Does this mean we have a 6-month Fall? That's a very long Fall.

Best Job winter version

Just stumbled upon this contest about being s snow bum. To summary it up it is a contest where the winner will live at a resort, all expense paid, for 3 months in interior British Columbia. There, the winner ski/board,tube, sled, and blog, tweet, youtube about the life there in cyberspace and doing PR their event.
Just need to submit a 60 second video about yourself.

Someone got the idea from that Island Reef Job, apparently.
I'd be interested who will end up winning. Snow bum... hum... not really the thing for me, even I am a snowboarder. Going there means I will need to find a new job upon return.

Certainly someone in Land Down Under have noticed that. (What we call ski hill/resort is called ski field there)

White Heat

Stumbled upon this book in the library, by Wayne Johnson. It gives a lot of insight of the life around the mountain and the life behind it. Avalanche control, patrol, and the life around the resorts.

This book is about the ski and snow culture. It is a good read for those new to the sports (this includes riders, thus plural) like me.

Wait till winter comes....

Oh, more snow quotes:
"Are you asking me to give a testimony, based on experience on snow, in summer?"

snow quotes

"Last weekend I was hanging out at Blue Mountain and people are still skiing and snowboarding. They are absolutely insane." First thing I heard on radio when driving to work - and that's what I did on the previous Saturday.

"O Yea, we are learning snowboarding next season. You see, even my younger son had all his [Burton] apparel ready."

"I am young enough to use the word 'stoked'. S-T-O-K-E-D."

"I forgot my camera today."
"To take pictures of you falling [on snow]?"

"Whistler? That's crazy.... yet awesome and EPIC."

"good to know.... I should save more for 'misc expenditures' like snowboard trips haha."
