Tomorrow is the day!! Kicking Horse is open for the season. I haven't hit the slopes yet but from all reports it is the best early-season conditions for a long time. Friend told me, he can't remember such good conditions and he has been skiing here for 20 years. He goes back to the Whitetooth ski Area days before it became Kicking Horse.
I am posting a video I came across the other day and it is well worth watching. It was shot in Nelson and Rossland and is certainly the most imaginative ski related video I have seen. He spent a lot of time on this with all sorts of great cutaways, great angles, closeups and good music. Very impressive and the setting is so unique. All the ski videos are basically the same nowadays. Strap a Go-Pro to your helmet, and away you go. Put some horrible music on it(showing my age) and you have a ski video. Take a look at this. I think you will like it.
