What a winter! Hot and cold and everything in between. I hope you managed to get through what was a trying ski season. I survived watching folks practice teaching in minus 27 C conditions at Nelson, B.C. Two weeks earlier, I had done the same thing in the same place, that time in the rain. But I skied some fabulous powder after receiving 95 centimetres of fresh snow in four days up in the Dezaiko Range. It was a tricky winter, but it was a fun winter. In the end, I hope yours was too.

Have a great summer!

Denys Lawrence, CANSI President
