    Day 26

    Looks like it was going to be another lovely day out on the slopes. The fog down in the valley below.



    There was a nice covering of cloud up top.



    Looking down Powdergulch Run. The cloud wasn't bothering us.



    Looking back up the run.

    Do it the snow way!

    Top of Powder Chair



    How different is it above the clouds? Awesome!

    Snow Ghost Express and Ridge Rocket Express lifts just poking through the clouds.



    There was hardly any wind and lots of wow in the views.



    On Blue Sapphire - one of the blue run picks for us for the stay there

    Another scenic shot looking towards the Monashee Ranges (I think)



    A girl lost a brand new snowboard, when she was trying to clip it on and it skidded off down the mtn. She took 3 and a half hours to get back from where she was for help. I have no idea which way she decided to go. A group of her friends were trying to find it...good luck!

    Day 27 Australia Day Pics.

    These were taken with the Canon video camera in photo mode. I didn't have my other cameras with me this morning.
    We all met up at Kangaroo Run at 10am. The drinking for some had already started.



    Jasper got into the mood and skiied down in the Aussie Day t-shirt. He was cold later on - no surprise.









    All I will say is that I was cursing I didn't have my Nikon with me. The bloody Canon took too long to focus...



    And down near the village...



    DOwn at Happy Valley they had cricket, football and an Aussie bbq. Fun day.

    Day 28

    A sad day :(

    Packing day and our final snow group shot together.



    Took the 97c hwy from Kelowna to Merritt. Surprisinly for an alpine road it is mostly 110km/hour. Not a hard road to drive and it felt like it was over high altitude plateaus as there were no distintive peaks along the drive.

    The fog was thick. One second no car and then it is out.





    And this next bit - well it was probably more fascinating if you were there. It was a very distinctive cloud formation - I call it the UFO cloud. There was another much smaller one and like a round ball near it but by the time we had a clear shot of it, it had broken up.





    We arrived back in Vancouver pretty late that night.

    DAy 29

    Our final day in Canada and probably our only real bad weather day. It was raining and it was miserable in Vancouver so we decided lets drive up above the rain - we headed to Whistler for the day, just shopped around and looked at how much bigger it is since I was there last and had dinner there before heading from there straight to the airport.

    I will say they have these magnificent Olympic rings at the end of their mall and they have planted trees right in front of them so if you are up the other end you cannot see them. Seems like a bit of a planning mistake not to have them highlighted.





    Well, 191 photos later I hope you all enjoyed sharing a little in what we thought was an excellent, memorable and hopefully one of many trips to Canada as a family. It was everything we had wished for and more

    Chunky again thanks very much and it makes me look forward to the planned trip in a 3 years when princess pollo is a good age.

    One question, how did you deal with the crowded slopes that you took photos of? I understand why you had time to take photos as there was no room on the runs

    I had to wait ages for the crowds to disappear to take those ones
