Winter Mode mods:

Zagarus and I did a Stage 1 Exedy clutch kit install on his JDM Swagon.
This turned out to be a 11 + hour job. Yay downpipe bolt fail. Yay tranny not wanting to come out fail. Yay then using the tranny on a jackstand to lift engine so we can install group n engine mounts mod. It was a great adventure. Lots of carolans/coffee, winter ale and polish sandwiches (Thanks Mom)

75cms snowbase as of today. They have half of their mountain open. It was cool, tad windy at some parts and very foggy. Snow was great though

Excellent! I can't wait to hit up Sun Peaks sometime this year. I grew up in Kamloops so it's sort of my favorite hill.

Nice! Went there for my high school grad. Definitely can't beat the snow of the interior mountains. Champagne powder ftw

I go somewhat often, my work has me covering the coquihalla all the way up to Merritt so I sometimes just "pop" over to my parents for a visit. I'm looking to do a few Sun Peaks runs this year. Would be awesome to plan a little NASIOC boarding cruise later this winter in Jan/Feb. Book a place for a weekend everyone pitch in, man that would be sweet!

I travel for work, my schedule is 3 weeks on 1 week off. Currently live with my parents in Surrey but yes I am up in Kelowna for the majority of my time off (went to university here). So I stay with friends up here during the break to catch the beach/golf or the mountains to board!

Kelowna needs better food though

Yeah that was awesome! My friends and I rented out places at Big White a couple of times. It can get fairly cheap, aside from food/booze, if you get enough people.

Hows your subby's paint holding up lol. After one year I have more pockets on my hood/bumper than a teenage face. Dr colorchip was awesome to fill in the chips on the hood. Bumper will stay chipped until I get a new one or just paint the damn thing


Damn wish one of you fellas was up here. One of the major runs/chairs for Big White hasn't opened yet and has its complete own parking lot on the lower level of the mountain. Since getting my car last year I have been up in that parking lot in the early season before it opens when I fancy some fun. Hugeeeeee flat parking lot with plenty of snow to have fun on but also nice to test the car and her limits
