    leaving my house. My cat didnt seem to care.



    Arriving in Calgary. Calgary Olympic Park


    The highway to Banff (doing 140km/h )


    On the lift, let the drinking begin!!









    The drinking started to catch up with us...


    Random Pics



    On the way home after the first day, coffee for the driver, beer for me


    Entering the ski-hill the next day



    On the Gondola


    Clouds going over the mountains in the morning, looked really cool





    My Friend going down the hill



    More random pics

    More pics...



    The Alberta/B.C boarder








    Cool looking iced up waterfall


    Driving home the next morning..



    Calgary Olympic Park again


    The roads were lookin pretty sh1tty


    yep.. real sh1tty


    Truck in the ditch


    What appears to be a train de-railment


    Another truck in the ditch **note the idiot driver thats just BEGGING to be crushed by another truck




    Video #1 - Trying to ski backwards while under the influence of alcohol while taking a video... you can see at the end where i almost wipe out!

    Video #2 - A really lame jump i tried to do, it looks real bad because there was a little roller right before i hit the jump that really messed me up.. i lost one ski on the landing but i kept going about a 100 feet down the hill

    Video #3 - a big cattle truck passing us in the blizzard on the way home..

    video #4 - video of the train de-railment...

    Whoa, awesome pics!! Thanks for posting them free_pizza. Looks like you had lots of fun! It also looks like there weren't that many people on the slopes... at least less than what I've seen here in Oregon.


    Very cute kitty BTW

    yeah, it was on thursday/friday which might explain why there wasnt very many people. But i like it that way, its nice skiing to the lift and getting on a chair within 15 seconds.

    I know i know.. It was my friend, he bought a pile of beer before picking me up from the airport, a bunch of coors lite, and a bunch of labatt lite. Yeahhh, i think ill be choosing the coors!!

    Wouldve taken guinness along, but its not a good idea to drink guinness out of a can, and bottles are out of the question for obvious reasons.

    To make up for it though, there was a lot of Rickards consumed (see picture ), and a fair amount of Guinness at the pub in Banff. Thats the first time ive heard of/tried Rickards Pale. Im not sure why they call it pale when it looks the exact same as Rickards Red, but it was REALLY good stuff!

    Not as much as i would like, usually once a year. Went to lake Louise in 2002, Fernie in 2003, missed 2004, Fernie in 2005, and Banff this year. I might try get out again before the season is over. April long weekend might be a good time to get out, but it might be a zoo with all the poeple trying to get their last skiing of the year in. Sunshine closes mid-may, so i might try get out at the very end of april/early may with my girlfriend. She is an incredible skier. She grew up skiing down a mountain to get to school.

    Sounds like a fun way to school but would suck coming home

    "I walked 3000 vert ft home in 20ft of snow every day"....

    I just started skiing and can say I am addicted. Good times indeed. I suck at skiing, but another 50 days up the mountain and I should be good to go

    Looks like a fun trip.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Video #3 - a big cattle truck passing us in the blizzard on the way home..
    These guys are the biggest a-holes on the road. The Mounties really need to do a crack down on them. It's not uncommon to see one of these guys 5 feet off the bumper of some little car already doing 120, trying to force them to either get out of the way or go faster. But driving like that in a blizzard is just nuts.

    By the looks of the pics you were here last week? There were several days when there were tow bans in effect (if you went in the ditch, nobody would be coming to get you) and travel was strongly discouraged. You timed it just right -- you got all the fresh powder and unlimited skiing with no crowds. Me on the otherhand, I've been sitting on my a$$ all week trying to get rid of this killer head cold thats going around Calgary. Hope you didn't take it back home with you

    (nice pics by the way!)

    yeah, they are pretty agressive drivers!

    yep, it was thursday/friday/saturday. The storm we hit was in Swift Current, so im not sure if they had Tow bans in Sask. Never heard of a tow ban to be honest.
    Hope you didn't take it back home with you
    nope, i have a little bit of a sniffly nose, but other than the stiff back and sore legs, i feel fine!

    So how many laws did you break? Woulda been about 10 down here in the states. Then again, it's sort of against the law to have fun down here.

    I thought drinking Coors in Canada was illegal and punishable by death?
