December 1, 2013

December 1st, 2013, light snow, -2.5 winds were 25-55 KPH from the S. Taken at 08:00 Hrs.

November 30, 2013, -2.5 with winds 15-30 KPH  from the S-SW, 14:30 Hrs.

At least there is skiing off Whistler Mountain. Temperatures next week will be ideal for snow making.

Over the past several months I have been trying to get company's like Arc'teryx, Black Diamond, Mammut, etc to advertise on the blog. I have also contacted many local businesses in Whistler who sell products to the reader's of the blog. Last Thursday there were 2400 page views on the site, in the past week it has hovered around 1800-2000 page views per day.  No takers, guess I will not be pursuing a career in SALES. Managing the site has gone from a hobby to a 2-3 hour per day job. If it cannot produce some sort of income for the work involved I will be shutting it down Mid December. If anyone has any contacts or ideas, please forward them on,  I would like to keep the information flow happening!
