For all of us Canadians, we take great pride and privilege in being home to some world-class slopes.

I had flown there when I was younger on the way to a family ski trip in Kamloops, where MuchMusic’s Snow Job happened to be on and I saw Treble Charger and Shaggy in all their early 2000’s glory, but that's the closest I got.
