It’s snowing at Crystal Mountain! Riding the chairlift, you often hear people say “you should have been here yesterday.” I like to think that any day on the slopes can bring that certain type of mountain transcendence we all crave.
I just wish I didn’t have to miss a powder day. My husband and I are on a brief vacation to Whistler, checking the weather and wondering why the snow couldn’t creep up north just a little more. As I read the telemetry, and see that Crystal has picked up almost two feet of snow since we left on Monday, I have to admit I’m a little jealous.
But as I look out my hotel window at the Whistler Village, the gondolas are spinning, and foreigners are queuing up for the lifts, I have to remember that any day on the slopes is great.
