Some photos from me skiing Whistler, the boys skiing Nakiska, and
Walter out for a walk as well.

Skiing at Nak

Sunny smiling photos at Nakiska with the whole family.

On this day, the boys finally got their wish and got to ride on the tubes. Henry was JACKED
since I told him that he couldn't when we were at Lake Louise in favour of doing it here.

Walter and Grayson holding each other's tube so they could spin together.

Out for a walk at Buffalo Bean


Full size
Since it hadn't snowed in weeks, Walter and I decided to go for a walk at Buffalo Bean to check on
the trail conditions. While it wasn't totally dry, it was awfully close.

Walter jumping on one of our starter jumps.

Walter having a snack on the high point of our trail. This is where we're going to install a
viewpoint once I take the time to shoot a panoramic here.

Walter looking at our view to the Rockies.


Full size
Starter panoramic - definitely more to do here, and best light in the morning like with ours.

Looking back at our switchback climbs.

Walter says this place is pretty cool.

Our little Valentines

The boys wearing their V-day glasses from the Danyliuks last year.


Full size
Henry made a beluga whale and a narwhal at school that I thought were cool.

This bunny (from Henry's class where they made V-day cardholders) has a pink eye.

The boys with their Valentine's day cake with their cool glasses.

Being cute brothers.

I told the boys to 'take a crazy photo' and this is what they came up with.

I took a work trip and got to see a customer's new motorcycle.

And sit on it too!

Skiing Whistler and having Marc show me around


Full size
This is a cool bench made from a chair lift in the ski patrol house.

We got terrible snow, but gorgeous sunshine while at Whistler so I took more photos than I likely
normally would. Great look back at Whistler Mountain from Blackcomb.


Full size
This was a whole lot of boiler plate awful snow, but it looks cool.


Full size
Marc and I decided to ski every chair at Whistler, which kept us busy all day. It took a bit over
100 km of distance, something like 10,500 vertical metres, and lots of granola bars as we didn't
stop all day until we used all 23 of their aerial lifts.

Me on the top of Blackcomb Mountain with nothing but sideways skiing to get back down.

The cables that hold up the Peak to Peak gondola are FAT!


Full size
People hold up their ski poles to have the whiskey jacks or grey jays land there. They're mostly just
scavengers as they will eat almost everything, including Natalia's cookies at Lake O'Hara.

Marc wanted a photo on the only chair lift not running, Franz's.


Full size
Cover for people on the magic carpet. In addition to keeping them dry, it reduces the amount of
maintenance they have to do on the lift itself.

Cool shot on the way back along Sunset Blvd. Too bad my watch didn't have enough juice for this
session as it would have been a pretty epic data set.

Some cool beer league hockey photos


Full size
One of Cochrane's finest photographers - Bill Marsh - joined us for a beer league photo shoot.
In his own words, "Once you're more than 18, no one takes photos of you playing hockey
anymore, and that's just sad." Well, thank you Bill for taking photos as I didn't play before
I was 18, so these are my first professional photos of me playing hockey.


Full size
Digging at the side of the net - this is about the only place I ever score from.


Full size
Forechecking is my only super power. It mostly comes from a single-minded focus on doing something that
takes virtually no skill - chase the puck.


Full size
Skating up ice and trying to receive a puck here. In my mind I'm sure I caught this pass and did something
amazing with it.


Full size
This is the most common position I find myself in, falling on my butt. But I try hard.


Full size
My team mate Kevin convinced me to try skating with a shorter stick and I actually think it has helped.


Full size
Fighting for the puck.
