Whistler tour

February 21, 2011

Here is a quick video of a short tour that I took with Justin and George off of Whistler a couple of weeks ago.  I had the movie all set on Final Cut but couldn’t get the music to play so last night I re did it on iMovie in a matter of a couple of minutes just to get it done so it looks really rushed.  I’m not sure if Final Cut is for me.  I’m going to need to get some serious instruction from someone who knows what they are doing with it if I’m going to use it for the Mica movie (Molly?  hint hint).  I’m a little disappointed that I think I’m going to have to start over with iMovie.  So the Mica movie is pushed back a little.  I would love to get it done this week before I go to Japan.

So the last two days of Mica were probably the deepest and best snow of my life.  The last day was for sure.  Couldn’t see or breath but it was ok.  Here are a few more pics from the trip.  I’m going to start working on the video today.  I’m going to use Final Cut for the first time instead of iMovie so bare with me until I get it figured out and finished.  It will be worth it though.  There are some amazing videos!

Darren getting disgusting

The wheels fell off of the trip.  Literally.  This bus started the drive with two tires.  We looked out the window and one of them was passing us.  It ended up 300 yards down the road.  Then the other tire popped.

Mica Heli Ski 2011

January 19, 2011

Here are some pics from Mica.  I’ll have a video when I get to it.  The snow has been great.  We’ve stayed off the steep and wide open stuff because of snow instability issues but the trees have been deep!  Our first day ended up being a down day because of low fog and freezing rain which is not good for helicopters.  Yesterday was sunny and cold and we had great conditions again today.  A storm is moving in tonight, in fact I can see it already socking in as I write this.  We’ll see what tomorrow brings.  I don’t have many pictures because we have been mostly taking video but here are a few pics from the trip so far.

I finally got around to putting all the clips from the Mica heli trip together.  Make sure you check the “HD” option and watch it in full screen mode.  Enjoy.

Mica Heli Ski Trip: Day 6, 7 and 8

January 31, 2010

I don’t have many pictures of the last few days of the trip because my camera battery ran out and I forgot to charge it.  The last two days of skiing were great.  We skied half a day and then started the long trip back to Seattle.

We flew out of the lodge to a shuttle that took us 2.5 hours to the town of Revelstoke and after dropping off some guys it took us another 4 hours or so to Kelowna.  We had a really good sushi dinner at Mo Mo’s Sushi and then stayed the night in town.  Yesterday we woke up early and are  driving to Winthorp, WA.  I had some lunch with E.A.’s family and finally got to meet his beautiful daughters and see their wonderful home.

I finally got back to Seattle around 8pm and went straight to Dick’s for dinner.

It was a great trip.  I met lots of new people and had a great time skiing!
