This past weekend was a blast at Big White. For the past couple years, I have been organizing a Vancouver video game industry/tech industry ski and snowboard trip. We usually go to Big White, and every year I look forward to hanging out with friends, past and current coworkers, and meeting new people. Here are just a couple pics from our trip, but I have a pretty awesome video coming up with snowboarding footage and some funny moments… but I still have a Kicking Horse video to edit so that will come first.

On the bus

Here we all are heading up on the bus… sold out again this year! 56 peeps.

Peeps on the chairlift

Friends on the chairlift… Crista, Trevor, Allan, Greg, and Mozy.

Chairlift pics

Here I am on the chairlift looking all covered up. It was a bit chilly.

Making drinks

We had a big get-together on Saturday night after boarding… about 80% of the bus showed up which was pretty good! Lots of fun to have everyone together and have some drinks. You can see Rielly (thejerk) in the background here. He got some hilarious footage which I will edit into our video.

Drinking games

Many drinking games were played that night…

Cabin party

And I think we all had a great time!


There was also tequila…

At Snowshoe Sam's

… and then we headed out our “usual” bar there, Snowshoe Sam’s. It’s always a great time, and like every year, I ended up playing on the foosball table half the night.

Walking back

The walk back from the bar is never a pretty one.

Allan tying up some randoms in Christmas lights

Allan somehow managed to find Christmas lights and he tied some randoms up. Haha.

On the uh, chairlift

Hanging out on the chairlift…


The snow was really great at Big White even though we didn’t have a dump of fresh snow. It’s so cold and dry up there that it stays really nice.


Crista looking cute!

Us vs. the dog

Me and Trev vs. the dog. Not sure what it was doing up there!

Tree jib

We got some great video footage from the two days at Big White… we found tons of natural jumps and jibs… here’s a little teaser for the video… check out that awesome tree jib!

More to come soon. Thanks for reading!
