Through this way, Mount Cain would love to inform everyone that we are in collaboration with Section 8 Snowsport Institute offering a 2 day Section 8's Science Friction Camp. (Ed. note: Erik has a rather Dutch way to his language. It's delightful). Section 8's Science Friction camps are designed for people who want to improve not only their skiing, but also their understanding of skiing. A better understanding of why we need to make a particular move at a given moment, means changes to your technique are more likely to become hard wired and integrated into your skiing. Without that understanding it is very easy for results to fade away over time. As well as looking at the technical aspects of your skiing, we will also look at how we can develop tactics to deal with Mount Cain's varied terrain; why we choose to turn where we do, and could we make better decisions about our speed, line, and turn shape? On these 2 day camps, you will make changes to your skiing that enable you to better carve up the groomers, slay the bumps and shred the pow and steeps. There's plenty of skiing, and plenty of fun, guaranteed! The dates of the camps are: January 3 and 4; February 4 and 5 only for women, it's woman weekend! (it will be a special edition); and February 11 and 12. A rough outline from the days are: Costs: for open public $250.00 Season pass holders $200.00 Staff members including ski patrol $150.00 Outline of the course Saturday: 9.15 Meet on snow. 9.30-12.00 Skill development & video analysis (weather permitting) 12.00-1.00 Lunch (view video) 1.00-3.30 Tactic development 3.30 onwards Apres in the bar Sunday: 9.15 Meet on snow. 9.30-12.00 Skill development 12.00-1.00 Lunch 1.00-3.00 Tactic development Check out one of their instruction videos to get a feeling of who they are: https://youtu.be/DLEZ_6A5-jE If you have any question, please feel free to connect directly with ErikClevering, Snow School Manager Mount Cain eclevering@mountcain.com or778-989-1579

We're alive!! After chowing down on days of cherry cherry fresh pow pow, I've managed to surface long enough to tell you that this... is the best skiing in years. One for the ages. Uh.. bring your chains, bring your fat skis or learn how to carve some, because it is deeeeep. (oh and really....bring your chains and put them on...)

As you're coming to or from Mount Cain. We are just showing some love for our friends in Sayward. You know, lively Sayward where the bustle never stops? Lyle Fast is hosting a tea house at Mountain Side Farm on Friday Night. Check out the habitat of a real mountain weirdo. Look for the roadside sign before Sayward. Won't you have some tea? Also, the Crossroads Restaurant at the Sayward Gas Station Junction is open now. They recommend the Sunday night drive home pizza.

BIG NEWS!!! We are having a soft opening for hard-core snow enthusiasts this weekend. That means the lower half of the mountain will be open. Our winter elves have been working very hard to bring you the first opening on Vancouver Island this year. Please be patient as we break in new employees and get up and running. Bring chains (and use them!). Dogs on a leash (and clean up after them). No unauthorized snowmobiles on the hill. Be cool.
