Vancouver 2010


Since beginning with ski lessons in November 1996 I skied on a regular (weekly) basis on Cypress Mountain (see picture) during the winter season until 2001.This local ski area is located 30 minutes by car from my house. Since 2001 Whistler/Blackcomb is my playground, but I also visit other ski areas like Grouse Mountain (see also more interesting stuff). 

Downhill skiing totally got me! I’m very confident on the blue runs now (and the easy black ones … by the way … the color codes are different from the codes used in Europe) and I’m having a lot of fun. The ski season here starts in November and lasts until April or May. In Whistler the season ends around August.


Vancouver, The Burrard Inlet in winter with snow on Grouse Mountain. That you also see snow in downtown Vancouver is very rare. Snowfall in the city happens only a few times a year. But it never stays long, because the temperatures are to high to keep the snow in the city. Cleaning the roads almost never happens, because the snow will almost disappear automatically.
