2 Cool Skiing-Related Things

Posted by Jane Carswell on Nov 30, 2011 3:43:00 PM

I came across two cool things that made me want to turn off my computer and head for the ski hill today.  But, alas, I'm still here looking at the local ski hill and hearing from our heli-ski guides about the awesome ski conditions around Revelstoke these days.  That won't stop me from sharing my finds in hopes that you will also be inspired to get out there and ski or ride.

#1 Cool Find of the Day

My new best friend, Marty Schaffer has been taking full advantage of his down time before he heads into the Bobbie Burns for a season of Heli-Ski guiding and has been out and about in the hills around Revelstoke getting his skiing fix.  Marty grew up in this neighborhood and knows the place like the back of his hand.  You can count on him to find the best early season stashes.  He's my best friend (or maybe my worst enemy?) because he's been sending in some great photos of his day tours around Revelstoke and in Roger's Pass that make me smile.  He compiled this video yesterday based on a day on Mt Begbie outside of Revelstoke.  This will make you want to get out there!

#2 Cool Find of the Day

I tell ya.  Those people at Skiing Interactive know exactly what skiers need.  Today, they were kind enough to provide the skiing and riding public with 3 modern day 'mixed tapes' (aka playlists); one for driving to the ski hill, one for skiing and one for your apres-ski.
