    I really hate snow now, I will post pictures of how much we got this weekend, it's around 20-40cm (about 1 foot). On Friday the temperature was around 12c and then the snow came, Saturday/Sunday -2c. And tomorrow its going to be 11c! Wacky weather!

    Yeah, but B.C. Looks beautiful...ya need to get into cross country skiing or snowmobiling and just enjoy it, or you're bound to be miserable.

    Yeah thats my own downfall. I really gotta find a winter sport I enjoy. We have enough terrain to make any season fun

    If you've never been its a worthwhile trip for any kind of bike. Roadies have 100's of km's of stunning roads to ride. The sites would be awesome for sure.

    I hate snow with a passion, no riding and it's usually -20c when there is snow. I can sometimes build snow jumps but they always get destroyed. When we get snow in December it seems nice but after a month and a half , you start to hate it...a lot.

    Well Like I said, about 1month when it is cold enough to snow, so that 1month a year of snow, and its sort of exiting in Autumn waiting for it. I probalby would get a bit sik of it, but I ski a lot and I dont like hot temps that much so its just right for me . God our lowest in the resorts would have to be like -9 at the max for min temps in a year. Anyway winter is fast approaching . Going up to a resort in 2 days so you never know, we might be lucky.

    Summer wasn't all that hot this time in Melbourne. I think it reached 39 degrees one day, then was just in the low 30's and mid 20's. I can't wait till Winter, i really want to ski.

    What's the lowest winter temp in Northern Austrailia? Itsn't still warmish there? I hate really hot summers, too much pollution=me choking to breath, which= no biking . Low 30's and mid 20's sounds good to me!
