Ski Jump Skyline

Maybe this is not the world's most exciting shot...but it does show Canada Olympic Park with the ski jump tower that featured last week rising on the skyline. This photo was taken about three weeks ago. The park always has snow earlier and later than the rest of the city because they use snowblowers to make snow all winter long. The half-pipe for snowboarders needs tonnes of the white stuff!

The snow has gone from the slopes now and soon the trails that lie beneath the snow will be open for mountain bikers to ride.

And that red grass in the foreground is not camera flare...or a photoshop effect. It really was that colour!

  2. Nice shot of the hills and clouds.

    And here's a question that shows my ignorance: Do you have chinooks all year round or just during the winter?
