The report only read a touch under a meter of snow and just a trace that night, but these beautifully rolling hills surrounding the city of Kamloops hold snow as well as any place I've been. Formally Tod Mountain, Sun Peaks gets the goods that'll make you feel famous. The climate is near desert, the snow light, and the runs long, long, long. Let me tell you, them kids out there can ride too, but more on that later. Thanks to locals Red Hair and Cruz for pointing me to some tight trees, which, as the kids say, were all that. "You hit it right," says Cruz. "Yesterday it wasn't nearly as nice and a lot more people." Ah yeah, it was sadly home to reality for all, but for those who lingered? Yummy.
