    Wife can't go to the states.

    I would love to ski in Colorado one day though.

    Looking at going after New Years, take the kids out of school for a few days catch some short lines and fresh tracks.

    Seriously where else should I consider going? What might be a better choice than Big White?

    It's built for people from Toronto. What do you expect?

    I love Big White and would recommend it to anyone. Great family mountain with tons of trees to blast through or you can stick to marked runs and have a good time as well. Lower village has ice skating, horse rides, tubing, icewall climbing... If you check dates and it shows unavailable it might be due to minimum night stays. In peak season you need to book 3-5 nights. If you decide to go there let me know and I can give more info. If it's midweek and you have a crew of four or less I can let you use my place.

    If the village experience is a high priority then Sun peaks would be a good option. I've never riden there but I hear good things, lots of terrain. I go in the summer for DH biking and have lots of fun.

    Apex is in Penticton but it's a small mountain with very limited village. Only four chairs but it's known for being steep if that's your thing. Peak to parking lot in six minutes tops.

    Silver Star is the other good spot in the Okanagan. Awesome MTN that suites skiers more but still fun. Lots of runs, skating, bowling alley but is pretty pricey compared to BW.

    Big White it is. I've been there before and loved it. None of those other option attract me more.

    Thank you for your generosity, I'll invite the gang over and have a party at your pad. I assume you have a good cleaning service lined up, right?

    Ya that would be sweet. I'd suggest looking at The Inn at Big White. Good prices, outdoor pool and hot tub, restaurant, bar and a thirty second walk to village and chairs lifts. It's well kept and clean.

    I tracked down @Lars@Lars ‘ house pretty easily. His shed is something of a tourist attraction. The travel guides call it “The Shed of a Thousand Over Cuts”.

    Police say a bucket of what was believed to be feces was dumped on a female outside a University of Toronto building late Monday night, the third such incident in the city within a four-day period.

    In a tweet sent out early Tuesday morning, police said the latest assault occurred at around midnight in the area of College Street and University Avenue, near a building on the University of Toronto’s downtown campus.

    Police said a man dumped a bucket of what appeared to be feces on a female on the sidewalk and then took off eastbound on College Street.

    Officers are currently investigating two other incidents where “liquefied fecal matter” was reportedly tossed on people inside university libraries.

    The first assault allegedly occurred at the University of Toronto’s Robarts Library on Friday.

    Police said an unknown man entered the library at around 5:20 p.m. carrying what has been described as "liquefied fecal matter."

    The man, according to police, then walked over to two unsuspecting people seated at a table and poured the contents of the bucket on them.

    He then fled the area on foot.

    On Tuesday, police released a photo of the suspect believed to be responsible for the two attacks around U of T. He has been described as a black male who is between the ages of 20 and 30 and has a medium build. He was seen wearing a yellow construction hat and a dark blue jacket.

    A similar scene unfolded on Sunday at a library at York University's Keele campus.

    In a statement released Monday, a York University spokesperson said an unknown male entered the university's Scott Library at around 5 p.m. and "deposited a substance, suspected of containing fecal matter, on a student."

    Surveillance camera images of the suspect in the York incident were released by police on Monday evening. He has been described by investigators as a black male in his 20s with a medium build. He was wearing a black hat, a blue sweater, light-coloured pants, and thick black gloves at the time of the alleged incident.

    In the image, the suspect appears to be carrying some sort of a bucket with a handle.

    For any anyone considering visiting Canada, with kids, if you’re into tobogganing, Ontario is your spot.

    BC has decent tobogganing but the hills are very slow. If you want your kids to putter down a hill, having to Tokyo drift around weed junkies and broken bongs, BC might work for you. Ontario has huge expanses of the most beautiful and thrilling toboggan runs on the planet.

    There was a cop at the top of the hill today, I asked him to put the radar on my daughter and she topped out at 108 km/hr as she ripped through the lower bowl.

    First half of my life in Ontario, second half of my life in BC, and there is no question about it, mountains and oceans over skyscrapers every single day. I love Toronto and all the energy of that hustle and bustle, and the glorious skyline as I'm driving down the Gardiner Expressway into the city at night, but the landscape in all of it's variations right across the privince of British Columbia can't be matched, from the Rockies on the eastern side to the coastal mountains on the west. Add to that some crashing Pacific waves and old growth rain forest, laid back ladies without all the glitz and glam across their faces, best pot in the world, and fresh air and clean water like nobody's business.........it's why me and so many others never went back home once we got a whiff of the west.

    Alberta is pretty awesome because of Banff and Canmore, as well as the amazing prairie landscape as you head souch down hwy 22 toward the Crowsnest. Plus cowgirls!

    Quebec has Montreal, which is undoubtedly the funnest city in the nation. Old Quebec is kinda cool for a day. Oh, and French broads! Ooh La La!!

    The Maritimes, I've never been to but I would love to get over there some day. New Foundland would be a blast. Halifax would be pretty awesome as well.

    Lastly, you forgot the Yukon dude. You forgot the motherfuckin Yukon! Big ass bears, and ya.

    Northwest Territories. Nevermind.

    Like most native Canadians, the lynx is an absolute pussy. Even a guy like Kelly Birdwatcher would have nothing to worry about.

    A bobcat would have murdered the entire hill.

    Health officials in Ontario have confirmed the first presumptive positive case of the new coronavirus in Canada.

    Dr. Barbara Yaffe, the province's associate chief medical officer of health, said a man in his 50s who had travelled to Wuhan, China, was taken to Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital and is now in stable condition in a negative pressure room.

    "We were notified of the lab result today, in the middle of the day," Yaffe told a news conference in Toronto on Saturday evening.

    "The emergency service was aware of his travel history and used full precautions."

    While the case has been confirmed by a test in Toronto, officials said it has yet to complete separate testing by the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases in Winnipeg. The illness will officially be confirmed once it completes that testing.

    The news of Canada's first coronavirus patient comes as authorities around the world grapple with the new type of virus, which originated in China but has since spread to Europe and North America.

    Authorities around the world have confirmed more than 1,200 cases so far, including three in France and two in the United States.





    RIP ontario . i hope you got your flu shots
