Anybody up for some skiing?

This Friday and Saturday, Dawn and I are going to be heading to Big White Ski Resort in Kelowna, BC. Dawn doesn't want to ski on Saturday, and none of my friends have this weekend off, so I'm still looking for a ski buddy.

You can get a cheap bed ($24 CDN) at the ski-in/ski-out SameSun Big White Hostel. If you get into town Friday morning or afternoon, you catch a ride from Kelowna to Big White with us. Kelowna's airport is served by WestJet, Horizon Air, and Air Canada/Jazz. Big White gives airline employees a 25% discount on lift tickets. So, if you're in the mood for some light Okanagan powder, drop me an email.

EDIT: Scatch that. All the rental car places are sold out so we'd have no way to get to the mountain. Guess we're gonna hang around here and ski locally.

hey Sam; I'd love to come, but I don't think my knees would take it:-).

If only you'd given a bit more notice; my wife's Dad lives in Kelowna and we usually make the 7 hour trek out there from Calgary around this time. Of course, I've heard the boarding there this year is dismal at best.

Hope you had fun even though you had to stay local. :)

You could have got the airport shuttle. Also lots of people hitch-hike the road - there's not much else up it except a lumber yard in the winter.
