Feature photo caption: Full Debriefing at Dusty’s

The Vancouver Branch had a great RMC Club Ski Day on Saturday Feb 17th 2018 starting at the Whistler Creekside Gondola entrance where the keen skiiers gathered in non-parade format.

Ken and Carol Tanner, Dana and Margaret Vanier, Craig Riddel, Bob Parsons, Darrel Madill, Richard Ronhalm, Scott De Lange Boom and Mark Duncan were in attendance.

It snowed all day and the powder was over a foot in most runs attacked by the group. (see slides and pictures at www.rmcvancouver.simplesite.com )

After an enjoyable day on the slopes, a wrap up cocktail hour and debriefing with numerous expanded stories occurred in Dusty’s Tavern in the Creekside Village.

Thank you to ken.tanner@ymail.com for organizing a fabulous day.
