Soldier Hollow hosted the Super Junior National Qualifier last weekend.  Conditions were perfect.

J1, OJ and Guest class for the Super JOQ last weekend.  There were 640 skiers racing this weekend.  Alive and Well.

Favorite kind of frost.  SoHo has been amazing this month.

Having landed in Vancouver a number of times over the past four years I didn't expect this, but when the pilot said we were making our final approach into Vancouver my feet started to sweat.

I woke up at 5 this morning.  Randy Gibbs looked at me and said I might have a mild case of Olympic fever, just a litte bit.
