Last time we stopped with the night session at Mt. Grouse. After the session, we checked out the nightlife in Vancouver, and had a nice little pub crawl. We spent the next day in Vancouver visiting the Sapient Snowboards Headquarter.
Enough Business, in the late afternoon we straight went to Mt. Seymour cause they are open until 10 o’clock (Imagine 2 night riding spots in one city, it’s amazing) and all of us just wanted to ride. Mt. Seymour is known for its fantastic view over Vancouver city, and definite must have shot for a photographers soul. Apparently it seemed like fog would cross our plans to get some good shots up there, but suddenly the fog lifted. Roughly 3m of snow motivated us to do a free session, and guess what: it was Ladies Night! Wouldn´t you wanna ride immediately? The girls really ripped, but we showed them how to rock, harr-harr! It was summercamp feeling cause the snow was that slushy, it was perfect conditions for some lines in the park. After splitting up for a while and checking the resort, we all decided to do a shoot at the box, cause the light conditions there were just great.
The next day when we woke up, Mt. Seymour was in dense fog. We had a look for other stuff to shred, when we met Lisa Filzmoser on the mountain, currently doing a shoot for a Canadian magazine. Luggi and Laurent checked out a nice rock to jib and did some action there.
We had to stop the session when Luggi bailed and insulted his shoulder. We agreed on our next stop, Whistler Mountain. On the way there we had a pit stop at the Coastal Riders, Vancouver’s biggest board shop, to meet Damon there. We needed some receivers and some other avalanche equipped and he gave us a really nice deal (Thanks for the support!).
We are on highway 99, heading for Whistler, let’s see what’s coming next…
