It never fails to take my breath away! Every time I leave sea level and venture out to the North Shore Mountains I feel invigorated. Perhaps, the feeling is amplified while alpine skiing. On those perfect days, the sun shines brightly; the air is crisp and the snow sparkles. As I raise the chairlift safety bar, lift my ski tips and prepare to unload, a sheer sense of joy comes over me. Moving away quickly from the unloading area, I begin to anticipate the views, and they never disappoint! Imagine panoramic ocean and city views all from the top of a snow-covered alpine run. Awe-inspiring and breathtaking!

With bated breath, I diligently monitor temperature and precipitation predictions. Anticipation builds! While commuters curse, I gleefully thank Mother Nature for the early season storms and unexpected blast of winter. I visualize fresh tracks and apres ski! Well, Vancouverites, the wait is over. It is official; Cypress Mountain kicks off the season this Friday, November 10th.
