Seattle…and the Canadian spigot

Bookmark a restaurant or two, shave, shower, and head to the airport: time to pick up a buddy at Sea-Tac, chow down, sleep well, and head towards British Columbia in the morning.

Indeed, the climate models were right–a dry winter in Colorado, so we’re heading to Whitecap Alpine (WhitecapAlpine.ca) in the hope the Canadian spigot stays open and we get to make turns in deep snow. We’ll be a 30-minute drive and 20-minute flight northeast of Whistler, where Olympic chaos has taken over. Luckily for us, Whitecap sits above 5000 feet, so while Vancouver and Squamish have gotten rain, Whitecap has 30 feet of snow on the year…so far.

Check back for more pics…if we can spare time between the sauna, turns, dinner, and sleep, we’ll post ’em.
