Description:

Saturday is National Ski Day (apparently), and Cypress Mountain has $10 lift tickets.

I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to practice tele skiing because I can get lots of runs in at a resort without forking out $60, and I can do so without a giant pack on my back.  Additionally there are no other trips that weekend, and I don't have exams to prepare for :).

If anyone would like to join and learn/teach, you're more that welcome. I have room for 3 more in my car, but whether I go or not depends on the weather (or is it whether :p). It's forecast to be a slushy day, which I guess is better (i.e. less painful) to learn on than icy conditions.

I should warn you that I've only been on tele skis once, and I suck at it.  Also this is the first time I've posted a new trip, so patients is a prerequisite.
