Poutine Party.

Last week a couple of old Frenchie bike racers came to BC. Matt Toulouse was an old team mate of mine and George Visser was a legend just before my time. I only raced George a couple times as a young buck way back in the day. This time however the boys come out to shred the pow and enjoy some beer along the way. Rather then breathe through their eyeballs and eat spinach smoothies and power bars. They brought along with them Jeff Rivest who was National team white water freestyle guy back in the 90's. To top it all off the King of the Shore himself decided to grace us with his presence, yes none other then Marty Lazarski himself. We hit Whistler on day one then did two days and a night in Keith's Hut up at the duffy.
On day on Eric Crow another Legend of the sport took us up into the Whister Backcountry. We did the Musical Bumps and Cowboy ridge then skied out singing pass and right to longhorns to get jiggy with it. I think I saw Tom Cruise on the patio crushing pints. 

Matt on the up enjoying the whister experience. 

The group having lunch on the first day. I also forgot to mention Martin Lafontaine joined us also. He just bought a late 80s toyota corolla wagon and is now living the dream. 
after whister we drove up to the Duffy and just slayed the deepest pow and killed it in the hut. 

Just like Montreal

Jeff doing a double blunt flat spin. oh wait........

after the first day we were the walking dead. ran out of water, Matt's 6th toe was falling off and Marty almost lost his leg due to going huge. Tara it was out of control, it was every man for himself.

I ran into some guys from bellingham at the hut who went up for a sun set rip. 

good night at Keith's hut.

burn baby burn. 

George and Jeff getting poutine ready for dinner. 

I think we went to the top of Vantage peak but Im not sure. either way it was unreal. we only skied a half day because the snow was turning to mush. They say it got up to 12c in Whistler village that day. 

we were all back at the car killing food by noon. It was a great couple days with a great group.
