Catfish and Peachtree do Xmas, Grouse Mountain Style

christmas-soldierHey gang, Hope everyone had a good xmas/Hanukah what have you! Mine was a little on the quiet side (the economy hit hard I guess). Despite the excessive pyjama lounging, I managed to boogie on up to the hill with my good friend Graeme for a couple hours.

If you have a minute, check out Graeme’s videos. This guy pumps out some fan-freakin-tastic little edits.

We managed to muck around a bit, slashing some serious pow and finding cute pillow lines all along blazes and inferno. Mind the rocks, as they are out and about as usual. With the mountain closing early and our stupid late start to the day, we moseyed  on over to the park, which was a little snowed in, but still managed to have fun. We played around on this roller, which has probably changed by now I’m not sure.

So yea we got tired, thus a trip to Lupins ensued. Après ski consisted of some hearty poutine and a little present-scoping under the massive tree. Graeme thought he’d check it out.

Feeling pretty beat up from our extensive 4-run day, we headed home for some turkey and family time (mainly sleep though). Overall, a good day was had by all. I hope everyone has a marvelous new-years!
