Tour 5 at Crescent Spur is now done and dusted and it’s a bit hard to believe that at the end of this week we’ll be a third of the way through our season. It’s true what they say, time sure does fly when you’re having fun!
In contrast to the mostly clear skies during tour 4, tour 5 was cloudier and snowier meaning a week of awesome powder skiing for our guests. A midweek highlight for guests and guides alike was skiing the Quickening in MacLeod Creek and getting over-the-head face shots all the way down.
The hazard was low for the week as well allowing the groups to ski some less frequented runs including Vanessa in the Mount Rider zone, and Lagavulin and Viagra in MacLeod Creek – tree skiing at it’s finest!
Our honorary event coordinator, the heli-devil himself, Mr. Garry James, spent his third consecutive week with us during Tour 5 and had us playing all kinds of games every night after dinner. Between the infamous ping pong game, singing along to Bohemian Rhapsody at the bonfire and Richard’s nightly post-dinner jokes, there was hardly a dull moment around the Spur last week.
Tour 6 got underway on Sunday and although the morning presented some challenging conditions, after lunch the weather cleared up and the afternoon was spectacular, a trend we hope continues for the rest of the week – we’ll keep you posted!
