Back on Skis!

Our camp here down in Mnt. Bachelor was looking skeptical after a very hot mid 20’s day up on the hill on day 2… We weren’t sure if we were going to be skiing on snow when day 11 rolled around. A snow fall on day 3 however turned things around and its looking like it’s going to be super productive camp for us all! Yes, a snowfall at the end of June. It happened.We are skiing till lunchtime, back at our hotel for a short siesta before our afternoon mountain bike rides or outside workouts with Craig. Long, fun, tiring days!

About

My first name is Alice. I'm called by my middle name, Georgia. I grew up getting beat up by my 3 older brothers Christian, Boyd and Julian. They rock. I love pretty much every sport there is, except maybe rhythmic gymnastics. I wonder who invented that one? Cooking is a fun pastime on a rainy day. The feeling of being on the brink of disaster, going as fast as possible, is indescribable. And I'm not talking about driving a car. It feels awesome being completely and utterly exhausted after giving 110% during a workout. I tell my mother everything (almost)... Examining snowflakes fall onto my jacket while on the chair lift could keep me bewildered for hours(haha, ok maybe not HOURS). I'm pretty sure I make myself laugh too often. Listening to music with my headphones keeps me sane. Making someone smile is contagious. Finishing a knitting project, such as a wicked awesome headband, is totally satisfying. I love being Canadian and having people laugh after I say the words "eh" and "toque". And it happens often. Having friends around the globe is a really cool thing. Experiencing different cultures is eye opening. Traveling all over the world is the best thing, but there is nothing like flying into Vancouver, eating a home cooked meal with my family, and falling asleep in my own bed.
