Any Nelson Locals Here?
Maybe I could bring like a block of Parmesan or something, though that's hard to smuggle into the States too.
Prickly, if you are a good skier and can keep up with the locals, just be friendly and ask questions on the lift rides. I'd bet someone will hook you up with a run or two on the backside, and probably some of that other stuff too. I find the Canadians to be much more polite and friendly than people from the States. Nelson has a pretty good ski bum population and it shouldn't be too hard to find someone willing to show you around, or at least point you in the right direction, especially since you are an "exotic foreigner." By the way, the girls up there can be pretty friendly too.
Send me a PM when you get closer to making the trip. Maybe I can hook you up with my friend, or at least get some better info for you. Sounds like you may be headed for some cat or heli skiing. That area has tons of options, and usually tons of snow. MF
