Ski and surf on the same day.

You can do it if you live in my adopted hometown, Courtenay, BC Canada.

No kidding.  They opened the local ski hill for Canada Day long weekend.  July first and Mt Washington had good spring skiing conditions.  Not surprising since they had 19 meters of snowpack this winter.

This photo was taken on June 1st.

Definitely no shortage of snow.

It’s burn your feet on the beach weather here in Spain.  When the car’s air conditioning cuts in I pretend it’s a brisk breeze as I speed downhill.  While I spray sunscreen on my sweaty back I imagine fluffy champagne powder.  This is what Mt Washington can deliver.

And the video dialogue gives you a nice taste of Canadian culture.

Oh Canada. My home and native land of incoherent, unemployed, but ridiculously happy ski bums.
