SAA Members run the E-Venti

This is one of my favourite photos of the day for a couple of reasons.

No it doesn't, tell me you got me very curious.

Great picture... You're right the stories behind the picture make it so much richer.

I wonder who else in the SAA crew has a blog where we can follow their stories... you will have to fill me in at the next workout.

See you soon, J.

In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
