End of Season Bike Ride

As some of the YES Crew had been biking since Febraury, it was only fitting that the end of season YES Adventure would be a bike ride down the Sea-to-Sky Trail.  Starting in Whistler, 50km later we would arrive in Squamish with our tour guides, Rob and PJ leading the way. (Well Brackendale really but that's close enough.)  The crew met at Olive's in Function Junction to get last minute gels etc.  Then it was off to the trail-head in Cheakamus.

Whistler - Dryland Training

What have you been doing to ready for the ski season?  Well, the YES Crew has been working hard in the gym to get ski-fit.  Nearing the end of our 12 week intensive program run by none other that our personal pain master, J.P. Fok, we are rounding into shape.  Or was it round is a shape?  Anyways, many a curse has been muttered (in several languages) as J.P. has put us through our paces.

Surf the POW!

There is nothing quite like riding the endless wave of powder to awaken the senses.

The opportunity to learn to achieve this sensation is completely possible with YES. Our professional Level 4 CASI Snowboard pros Rob Leblanc and Jaron Pauls have a combined 30+ years of experience teaching the art of snowboarding. The fact that people feel that they will never be able to "ride like that" is not something that we believe here at YES. Everyone can achieve their goals with a little training, confidence and guidance.

BASI Course - Whistler, BC

This year YES has arranged for a Level 2 BASI course to be offered here in Whistler.  I had the honour of joining the group for the first of two weeks to see what the British were up to.  BASI course examiner Alex Leaf came over from Europe to run the course.  The week started on Sunday with a meet and greet at the Alta Vista Chalet.
