    Default Two weeks of fog

    Vancouver is known for its massive amounts of percipitation and yes we did have our fair share of rain already this winter. Finally the weather people forecasted some two weeks of sun. They were right, however, the sun has been blocked out by the two weeks of fog. Anyway, I thought I should share this amazing picture of downtown Vancouver taken on Mount Seymour during one of the sunny/foggy days this week. The mountain is about a 20 minute / 11 mile drive from downtown Vancouver.

    Vertical: 330 m (1,083 ft)
    Top elevation: 1,265 m (4,150 ft)
    Base elevation: 1,023 m (3,356 ft)

    Skiable area: 24.4 ha (60 acres)
    Runs: 23 total
    22% beginner
    61% intermediate
    17% expert
    Longest run: 1.6 km (1 mi)

    Lift system: 5 total
    3 double chairlifts
    1 rope tow
    1 magic carpet

    Snowfall: 800 cm (315 in)

    Such a beautiful place. I can appreciate the sentiment having lived in WA and OR for some time in the past. That is the weather that popularized coffee drinks right there.
