With the close of a fantastic year, I went on my annual pilgrimage to the mountains in BC. Swimming through waste deep lines, getting powder shots to the face, yes, the snow was five meters deep. The only thing that approaches the beauty of the white alpine world is the cold pint that is the Après. There is no more inspiring way to ring in the new year than to soak up some time in the mountains. I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a good year.
