I have been going up to Whistler in the spring every year for over ten years now. This year I almost didn’t make it because of my broken foot, but I was able to sneak in for the last few weeks of winter weather before the heat turned up. I wasn’t able to film because my foot is not 100%, but I rode lots and got to put my foot though the daily grind of snowmobiling and hiking and building some jumps. It was good to test my foot out on all the other things that I do while out snowboarding in the back country. I rode some fun slushy days at Whistler, too, and when the weather got super hot, I did lots of hikes. It was cool to hook up with Simon and Blair and hear about their season and see all the Canada homies.
