Crisp and even

Winter! First we had some precipitation pass through BC, and then an arctic air mass set up shop over the province - as a result everything turned white. Fitted around the storm, we made a trip to Vancouver with a bonus stop on Coquihalla Summit for the first (real) ski of the season. The conditions could be described as "intermittently loud", but in between the concrete-hard crust there were some brief moments of better-than-survival-skiing.

Lina chose slow-shoes for the journey, and added to our collection of "tummy with mountains" photos.

The gang

Now we're back in Vernon and things are all white. It's also a bit chilly (like -10 at night)... which means my pump track is the driest it's been in ages, though a little slippery.
