Welcome Gabe

Unfortunately we don't have any spots locally. As soon as you find enough elevation to find snow the pesky trees get in the way.

Once Green and Alta lakes freeze up at Whistler we go there. They freeze late and some years not at all. Looking good for Jan this year?

I am off to catch up to Coolbreeze and Bugeyed at Tunkwa lake. About 1 hour from Merrit. It's just far enough we prefer to overnight on the lake.

I am a fellow arcuser as well . Lets get together and share our gear!

Send me an email at my name kendunion at hotmail
