April Skiing in Whistler

Yesterday I woke up really, really early, and drove up to Whistler for a day of skiing. he conditions were fairly icy, so that meant I did a lot of groomed runs until things softened up in the afternoon. I demo'd some skis, and even a fancy HUD google display which was set to display kilometers per hour. I, of course, had to see if it could display three digits, but unfortunately topped out at 96km/hr and never found out. The large proportion of groomed runs I did also explains why I was able to cover such a large distance -- a bit over 72 miles of skiing. That's basically like skiing a third of the way back to Seattle. Here's a panorama from the top of Whistler mountain:
