Dr Jen’s Ski Report: Opening Day – Nov, 10 2017

Doctor Jen, the counselling group
What!? Cypress is opening on Friday November 10th! Sorry clients, but as an advocate of outside time for mental health, I must cancel our appointments. 

So here we are, my husband Mike and I, having just finished our first day of skiing this season. I have a smile from ear to ear.

Two lifts were open today, Eagle Express accessing Maelle Rickers and the Skate Park, and Easy Rider for the beginners.

Until today, I had forgotten how a few runs outside on the mountain can make all of life’s stressors disappear. So lovely. 

The mountain was really busy too, which is great for Cypress. Old and young were flocking to the opening. I rode the chair with a boy in grade 5 who had the day off from school. I also had the pleasure of a chat with a Ph.D. student from UBC. Chairlift Chat is a part of the great experience up here.

Looks like we are in for another great season! I hope you can carve out some time for yourself, maybe cancel all your clients, and enjoy an early start to warding off those SAD symptoms!
