3.5 weeks after tearing his right calf muscle, David is finally back on the mountain. Just in time as we received 31 cm of powder in the past 24 hours (not that he went near the pow... calf is not ready for that yet).
A little less of an "old man" today.

Tons of snow for opening days at Whistler (November 23rd) and Blackcomb (November 24th) -- over 200 cm new snow in a week.
Unfortunately, a gentle forward tumble in the powder on Day 2 has put David out of action for at least 3-4 weeks: a Grade 2 right calf pull (or strain, tear, etc.). This injury feels very similar (and not worse) to his left-leg injury back in 2012 (running to catch the bus here in Whistler) -- it required 3.5 weeks to get back on the mountain. This time, though, help from a physiotherapist has been sought (who informs him that it gets worse with age...).
So much for being in such great shape after our 12+ day trekking in Nepal! 🙁
Meanwhile, Michelle is skiing up a storm ⛷ in all the new snow.
