    My "hideout"

    Just some pics I took the other day. Anyone want some snow? I am not a computer type guy so the wife worked on this for me while I sanded all afternoon! Hope this all works, seems to be easy once you get on to it But would still rather sand

    Jason. The blue is some paint that I had left over after painting my raft rails (own a resort). Have stopped using it and it is not because I ran out... The door is a metal door which I stuck insulated panels on. The foil is suppose to reflect the radiant heat back into the room. Used an adhesive that was suposed to work but didn't do that great a job, hence the pink showing on the one side. Have to do something with that

    Stu that snow is the same stuff that they get at Big White! You should be use to it...

    Nice set-up, and I'm envious of all your room. I can think of much worse places to be snowed in. Thanks for the tour, Rob.

    Yep Rob, some of the BEST Champagne powder snow on the planet, broke my leg twice (different seasons) skiing Big White

    Loved that powder, we used to hike up to the bowl on the left side of the mountain, and skied the cliff a few times too

    Stay warm!

    That snow "looks" great . . of course that's from here. The shop looks great too; lots of room to work which is a blessing.

    Rob,
    Great looking shop.. you need to go down there right now and do some work and mess it up.. it's way too clean....

    The first picture is the reason I don't live any further north than I do... My ideal climate would be some place like Costa Rica, Aruba, Trinidad....anywhere along the equator...
