A Visitor from Home

This week has been busy with our daughter, Tammy visiting us. She has never been west and was humbled with the vastness and beauty the mountains have to offer. We both skied and toured the mountain during the week.

Thanks Shonna (our tour guide)
We did manage to snow shoe one afternoon and it was wonderful for Bob to be able to experience the afternoon with us. Julie, her best friend since grade 4 drove from Calgary to visit. It was great to see her again.

Tammy and Julie (Juice) had lots of catching up to do, and some great skiing, since we had a dump of fresh snow. Good timing! They both left  yesterday with big smiles and very tired.

As for Bob.... Yes, Bob has clearance to begin more strenuous activity as he is recovering very quickly since he had the fluid drained from his right lung. Bob is expected to ski this Thursday after a quick x-ray and exam scheduled early that morning.
Yes, the medical system here work according to snow conditions. You can't spoil a good ski day by seeing patients throughout the workday when you can see them before the hill opens. We love Valley Time!!!!

A good afternoon
Thursday 1 March will be a good day. We will celebrate as ski bums should: At the Mile One Hut in front of the fire with a toast of Hot Chocolate and Amaretto under the mid afternoon sun.......and of course, Bob and I will be Skiing.


  1. Looks wonderful. I'm jealous. There is just something so nice and cosy about being in the snow. I have to wait until July for a little 5 night stay at Perisher here in New South Wales, Australia. I am a reasonable skier but my son is better so we end up in places I shouldn't really go. Entertainment for him as I inevitably crash on some of the black runs.
