And the sun comes out at the end of the day.............


Pineapple Express

The pineapple express is a little milder than I would like to see this afternoon.
FYI - mec.ca and other stores sell these products that I use to wash my ski clothes. They work.

I stopped by the lodge this afternoon, the kitchen is now operational, and there is more food available. Sandwiches, salad, and I heard there was poutine.

Groomer Mornings

So when Will was grooming this morning, and Kevin was doing the lift checks at the top of Sugarlump, it was a beautiful sunrise - then the cloud layer came up.

Thanks Will - lifted from your facebook page.

Mt. Baldy Alpine Club

The Mt. Baldy Alpine Club is looking to start a new Nancy Greene program. There are sign up sheets in the lodge, and there is new information on their website. There are some awesome skiers on this mountain who participated in the program when they were younger. Many lasting friendships too.

http://mtbaldyracers.org/

"Baldy’s back and what a great feeling to ride the lifts again at this great place in the Okanagan Valley. The club is excited to start a Nancy Greene Program for 2015 and welcome all new children that are interested to sign up so we can have a bright new beginning. We have always been a strong presence on the mountain on Sundays and the tradition will continue. If you are interested, please contact Paul Rauhala at paul@okaped.com for more information on the program and how to get started. Welcome back, join and bring a friend. Lets have a fun time at Baldy!!"

Three Cabin Break Ins

A cabin was broken into on Whiskey Jack , most likely Saturday night. The time frame appears to be the same as the theft from vehicles on Cougar. The owners left about 4:00pm, and the break-in was discovered after the owners, and perpetrators foot prints were covered by Saturday night's snowfall.

One item stolen Saturday was recovered in Oliver this week - linked to a place associated with criminal activity.

Keep an eye out for suspicious activity.

Update - I have now been informed about two other cabins broken in to - owners have been notified.
