    Skiing and hammocks

    We went to Fernie in British Columbia for some skiing and had too awesome of weather....almost spring skiing a month early. At least the snow in the upper section was good. Had a great couple days there. In my pack I was carrying my hammock for when I got tired lol. Lots of cedars.

    Used my hammock anchors setup and was chilling in 2 minutes. Great time with the kids.

    Heard one young skier say...."dad he brought his hammock!!" Too funny!

    That's great I went on a sky weekend with the boy scouts this weekend. Its our one trip per year that we sleep inside. I was wishing I had my hammock when I saw how many trees were next to the slopes.

    Wouldn't you know it that you'd have a down tree on the ground parallel with you hanging points. I hate it when that happens. I see these videos of sample hang situations and they seem to have absolutely no ground cover. I'm sure one can find those situations, but not usually where I hang.

    Looks like fun - even without any pad or under quilt. I try to bring a hammock when I go out, but my skiing/hiking companions just aren't "into it". I'm glad you had some fun are were able to share it. Thank you.

    It was cosy and warm. +4 celsius and we were wearing warm gear. We were also trying to find an area to show some mountains not just snow ... Happened to catch a skier

    Nice! I'm glad someone else had the same idea, but actually went through with it. Fernie's snow looks a tad low, did you just stay on piste? I'm taking it you did not use, or need, fat skis. Kootenay resorts seem to be surviving while the East has locked up shop for the season.

    All the hills are suffering except Kicking Horse and Jasper up North... bizarre weather.
    We tried to stay in the upper regions of the mountain.
