I decided that the imperfections of this photo are outweighed by the cool factor, so I am posting it despite it not being up to my usual photo blog standards. I took this out of an office window (hence the terrible glares) right as the clouds kind of parted to reveal Grouse Mountain across the Burrard Inlet being lit up as darkness settled in over Vancouver.

After a few trips to our Neighbor to the North and then to Utah, snowboarding has quickly become a favorite past-time of mine. One of my favorite times to snowboard is as night. Despite the misery that sometimes is the biting cold with no sunshine to warm you on the ski lift, it’s actually a pretty incredible time to be on the mountain. The way the flood lights hit the snow makes it easy to see all the bumps and groves in the snow, so you can see exactly what you’re boarding over. This particular mountain, Cypress, is located in North Vancouver and provides a pretty rad view of the city when the clouds manage to get out of the way.

I love the way the slopes are lit up.
