Mica Trip Review

Great week of skiing, no down days, great weather, great snow, I skied 195k feet, tops in the group (although I really had nothing to do with that, I just skied ever run offered to me). Really enjoyed Mica, great operation, beautiful lodge, wonderful staff, fantastic food, and an amazing ski zone. Truly a tops in class operation, it's easy to see what all the hype is about. Even in a bad snow year, with little recent snow, we skied boot top powder or deeper all week, opened new zones, got some classic Mica tree and pillow lines, and saw a lot more of the alpine then most people get too. Many thanks to Scooter for putting the trip together and EA for inviting me along. Great group of guys too, it's really the people that make trips like this!

I still think the funniest thing was when EA got a phone call on the bus boys cell phone at the sushi restaurant in Kelowna (it was the owner calling to say hi since he wasn't in that evening).

Here's a few shots that EA got of your truly:
