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!

So serious



Mike was cold at breakfast. So he put on his helmet to eat his food. We were not laughing at him…



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.
