The morning started out with clouds and wind. It was cold on the Super Carpet, where we spent close to an hour before the kids got tired. Our plan was to take all three of them to the Village in the afternoon but I realized that the weakest one wasn't going to make it all that way so I knew I would be staying back on the Magic Carpet with him.
The snow in the morning was hard packed and we were interested to see how the boys would do in those conditions. They did about the same as in the slush. In the afternoon, the sun came out for most of the time and the snow softened up to it's usual slushy-ness. Bel took Hamish and Lucas to the Village where they started turning a bit better. I stayed behind with Noah, who really had no interest in snowboarding all week. But he was happy to be in Snow School and hanging around with us. Darren had his level threes jumping a gap and over kids. Quite amusing. We painted the boys faces again to kill some time in the late afternoon. At the end of the day, the parents thanked us for a great week and showed their appreciation by tipping nicely. It was a decent last week to the end of the season.

Bounce last night. Once again, we started the morning on the Super Carpet trying to get them turning. They can definitely "do it sometimes". But fatigue was definitely playing a role in their riding today. Bel and I decided to take them on an "adventure"… so after lunch we took the Village Gondola to the Roundhouse then loaded on the Peak 2 Peak gondola. Once over at Blackcomb, they spent about a half hour playing Nintendo Wii at Rendezvous. We then rode the Peak to Peak back over to Whistler and downloaded back to the CLC. We didn't do much riding today so we are thinking tomorrow we might venture and take them to the Village!!
