Here are some pictures from the Whistler-Blackcomb trip. Garth was a pansy and didn't come along with us, so it was Brady, Mike, and myself. Click here for lift maps and town maps.
I apologize for the low quality of this web page. I don't have time to do a better job at presentation for a few days. And all the pictures need to be run through Photoshop's "AutoLevels" to make the colors better. The weekend wasn't this gray, the camera just interprets lower light conditions this way.

Picture 15 - Brady skiied off a cliff, 8 feet straight down into a river. Here he is at the bottom.

Picture 21 - Fabulous picture of guy with a broken ski. He says he hit a mogul wrong. He had to walk off the mountain this way.
