Whistler Randonnee Rally — and does the Sierra have too much snow?


Post by WildSnow.com blogger | January 12, 2005      

Someone finally published Whistler Rally results — better late then never. And a couple of readers sent me links to the detailed results at Life-Link.

Reader Jeff wrote this about the Rally:

“At the after party John Scott mentioned having computer difficulties producing the results and apologized for not having them at the party. The rally was very fun, it was my first and I definitely plan to do more.” Jeff

And by the way: I apologize for saying the Sierra might have too much snow. Hey, a skier should NEVER use the words “too much” and “snow” in the same sentence. Backcountry skiing requires snow — the more the better!

Blog reader C.D. wrote the following:

“Lou,
I enjoy reading your books, website information and your recent weblogs, but as a skier in Lake Tahoe, I have to take issue with anyone saying we have got enough snow. : ) After a day like today, I can only hope for more storms like those we’ve seen over the past two weeks.” C.D.

Okay — point taken!
