T-6 and counting.

To Whistler, British Columbia... that's all I have to say.

That's it. That's all. No, not that one. I am not crazy yet.

OK. This is getting so surreal for this winter.

So let's rewind back to March 2008. As I mentioned in here before, there was a company ski trip. I had always wanted to try snowboarding so I chose snowboarding on that day.
My feeling was that I wanted to do it for real but the season was ending soon so this soon slipped out of my mind.

Then another winter came. Apart from video gaming (one of which is Shaun White Snowboarding (which I got for PC version)) and stuff, I somehow decided to make my New Year's Resolution that I should learn snowboarding for real. So I signed up for snowboarding class at Glen Eden early January to put my New Year's Resolution. Then things are getting weirder by each week.

By late January someone in office actually asked me whether I wanted to go to Mont-Tremblant (in Quebec) in the Family Day long weekend with him. Then, a couple days later he told me that one of his friends was injured while snowboarding (season-ending type) so out of respect the whole group would not be going. It was not really a problem since it never went beyond the planning stage anyway.
A week later another group of people asked the same question - i.e. to the same location in the same weekend. My thought was like "Again?" They ended up not going but history did not repeat - they just could not get the logistic to work.

I heard they went to Blue Mountain on that weekend. In any case I had other engagement that prevented me to go.

Yesterday was the last lesson of snowboarding. I was able to ride down green run and is chairlift ready. That's all good. I posted on my Facebook asking if anyone is interested for a ski/snowboard trip on March 14 weekend. The plan was actually a day trip but I had not planned which day of the weekend at that time.

This morning:
Someone asked me whether I am going to Whistler with them (all skier...) during the March break... My thought was actually WTF. The trip posted on Facebook certainly does not mean a trip to the other side of Canada.

But don't get me wrong. I am rather neutral on this atm.

My supervisor will have my head for making him do the schedule again....
BTW, if I am going, date would be from March 19-24.
