October 20th, my so-called "Whistler Birthday". It's my 6th full year here. I always seem to look back on the years previous. What I've done, where I've been. The people I've met. Those who've left; those that have stayed. The girls - oh, the girls. The folks I've met from Vancouver, and beyond. The reasons I've stayed. The season. The days on the powder, the nights in the bar. The hard times (and there have been some), by me, and by my brothers.
Now the season is upon us. A mere 35 days until the mountain is scheduled to open, but let's be honest, it's gonna be earlier. WB has an untarnished record for the last few years (even though a couple of years ago it was only 24 hours early, but I'll allow it).
So to all of you, this post is a thank you. I've had some fantastic times, but I couldn't have done it without you. So thanks for being awesome.
