Mt. Cain on N. Vancouver island is sweet.

seriously.

laugh at the 'two t-bars' all day, but there is FINE powder up here, no lift lines, and TONS of backcountry goodness! ! Some of the best skiing I've done in ages!!

Check a couple pics:


I DRIVE THIS BUS! no joke, I drive the ski-bus on weekends. free pass + cash... what a deal, just got my class 4 a couple weeks ago... and what a bitchin' bus it is.

a few pics I snapped after hiking this little hill (to hit some fresh lines).. I stopped, had a little snack, and took these pics.

If you get me the exact dates (of the last ones) I'll add them to picture of the week that way they don't get lost in the forum.

thats cool. I never really noticed the fish eye effect at first.

You'll have to pick one of these for pic of the month, but with all the other great shots in your other posts it would be hard to choose just one


Cool shots of the birds as well. must have been hard to shoot those solo

wasn't too bad - they wouldn't go away ! but would've been easier to take pics of someone else, yeah... but would they put up with me taking pics for 20minutes straight?! ahhaha

You beat me to it Princess! We used to feed them out snowmobiling years ago, haven't really noticed them lately though. It's cool when they land in your hand to feed!

Great pics of them flying in/out of your hand! Nice photography! About every 1 in 1000 I get a pic that good, you have several in each post! Nice!
