Not sure how much the border crossing security is going to be heightened by, but it will be for sure. I suggested we should go to Cypress instead.

    On a side note, lots of international teams are practicing here in the Okanagan. A number of Nordic teams are up at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre at Silver Star Mountain in Vernon. The Swedish Women's Hockey Team is practicing here in Kelowna. And today I went skiing with my fellow employees to Apex; I believe the Swiss, Japanese, Americans, and Canadians are practicing freestyle and moguls skiing there. The T-Bar wasn't running during the day, but after hours they turned it on and the lights came on on the freestyle course. Saw a bunch of skiers heading up.
    So are you asking for autographs so you can sell them on Ebay for millions of dollars?

    No, I didn't. But my autographed Scott Niedermayer hockey stick is probably worth something.

    TY fr the info. I'll look for it at the store.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Lindsey Vonn "America's Best Woman Skier Ever" is on the cover. Interesting pose, like she's in the middle of a downhill run, while flashing a pretty smile at the camera.

    And it's getting the standard sexism/exploitation/etc. complaints.
    My response: Hey, that's how she skis.

    The resort area folks in Big Bear Lake, in the San Bernardino Mountains outside of Los Angeles, are reporting the most snowfall, and some of the best skiing conditions in over 40 years.

    Maybe VANOC can make a deal with them???

    Noooooooo! The Jamaican Bobsled team didn't qualify

    New York Times: Jamaican Bobsled Fails to Qualify for Games

    I was really hoping to cheer these guys on and I bet people that got a hold of Bobsled tickets wanted to see them as well. Whistler lost a good attraction.

    Hopefully the guys make it to Sochi. Good luck in the future Jamaican Bobsled team.

    Just a week to go:



    Northern House, the first of many free pavillions was open today:







    A pavilion in progress - interesting combination of wooden structures and giant inflatable dome:

    The nightly light show in Vancouver has started. You can upload your own design at Vectorial Elevation - Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, and they'll even e-mail you a photo of it:

    Whistler has enough, but Cypress...
    CTV British Columbia | No weekend ski sessions for athletes on Cypress

    I feel bad for the athletes that can't get in practice runs on the course.

    Apex Ski Resort in Penticton has their moguls and freestyle course setup. They shuld just send the athletes there.
