Going to Sunshine this weekend, our 4th on the card so free  8).

Nice!

Heading to Lake Louise this weekend.

Fortunate enough to get to Sunshine 10x this year.  Worth the drive.

the lac was pretty fun on sunday.  Hit some big drops but only got a photo of one.  The really big knob at the top of paradise is on the list for next weekend! Terrain park is SO fun, I wish Fernie had one :( Why can't we have nice things.  First time at LL in about 5 years

ehhh we have different standards.  It was stiff, I wouldn't have considered it spring above the top of glacier.  And paradise/summit was stiff.  Sun never really came out enough to soften things up.  Last weekend was WAY, WAY better

This is a fair assessment of the conditions. I took a lap on the backside and decided to return frontside and stayed low for the remainder of the day. I had a lot of fun just doing cruiser/park laps. NOTE: I don't do cool stuff in the park but my buddy who I was riding with does.

I'm the same, when I'm feeling good I can do 360s on the big jumps (not the XL) but I definitely wasn't feeling it and only did a few grabs on my laps. And cased one haha

Heading out to Jasper for Marmots closing weekend this Friday. Have never been there for closing weekend so it should be pretty fun.

Ugh, I wish. This is my first time missing Slush Cup in like 6 years. Easily the most fun weekend of the season.

I've never been but have always been curious to check it out. Are the conditions even decent by this point in the season?

If you like spring riding, there is a lot of fun to be had; a lot more exposed rock, dirt, and trees but they can make for fun little features. There is a party atmosphere around the mountain that has most people in good spirits as well.

I am a huge fan of warm slushy spring riding so I love it.

It is more so just the atmosphere that makes it so much fun. I brought a bunch of my friends last year that don't even ski/snowboard and they said it was one of the best times they've had.
