Sometimes you're a hero, and sometimes you're just stoked you get to go home.
This was our second line today. It was super fun walking up this thing. We normally can't get into it because of the massive cornice that grows above it by this time of year - which was absent today. I knew the snow in the upper 100 feet was rotten, so I decided to ski slowly and conservatively to play it safe. I probed any weird looking thing on my way up, but I guess I missed one. I'm fine, a bit sore. I somehow stopped quickly, which is good because the alternative wasn't really an option - it's steepish and there's a bunch of exposure at the bottom of the line. Not my time. @blackdiamond#liveskirepeat#protectourwinters@smithoptics@dissentlabs . . . . #skiing#backcountry#whistler#pemberton#skimo#climb#winter#powder#oops
BALANCE // 33 hours in 3 days and it’s only Wednesday! As we’re in the midst of one of our biz’ craziest working months & with the holidays quickly approaching it’s hard to even think about time off, but it’s SO important to remember that balance is the KEY TO LIFE. The most helpful things getting me by this week: 1. Beautiful Mountain Offices = grateful 2. The following quotes, I thought to share 👇 . . “I’ve learned that you can’t have everything and do everything at the same time.” -Oprah Winfrey . “Reconsider your definitions. We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind.: - Dr. Martin Luther king Jr. . . I know so many of you are dreamers too, Any thing you want to share on work + life balance? . . (Excuse the bed head Hair 🤷♀️) #entrepreneur#balance#nomad#businessowner#creativepreneur#worklifebalance#wednesdaywisdom#neverstopdreaming#lifestyle
Meet Alta, the new "house dog" @fairmontwhistlr. She's two-and-a-half, and very sweet. When she's not "on duty" at the hotel, she lives with the Fairmont's excellent Chef Isabel Chung. And really, what could be better in a #slopeside#ski hotel than terrific service, a brilliant Chef and a sweet, sweet dog? . . #dogsofinstagram#itsadogslife#whistler
