    Kicking Horse

    A very different place than Revy. About 2.5 hours East we got a private van..the driver even gets to ski..nice.
    A good place to test your nerves..lots of bowls,some very steep. We climbed the stairway to heaven to a rather scary 40 degree drop in..good wake up call. It hadnt snowed in some time so it was all hardpack and chalk. Spent the day hiking as nd dropping bowls, some mogul runs as well. Get there when its good and it will be an experience.20180228_104503.jpg20180228_103405.jpg20180228_143055.jpg20180228_143053.jpg

    The day I skied there was very socked in. You were blind stepping out of the gondi. Fresh snow so some good turns were had but...it was unnerving.

    Stuff like that gives me vertigo. I just want to get down, it's hard to have fun.

    Put some trees there and it's a different story altogether. Gives you a sense of up and down and cures vertigo no matter how steep.

    The tree skiing was tough..right off the sides and super steep. I liked the bowls better
