"There's nothing like first chair on a pow day!" I've heard this nearly as much as the popular, "No friends on a powder day!" and finally decided to experience it first hand.
7am comes quickly, even after a much anticipated snowfall of 15cm in Fernie, BC. Coffee in hand, gear loaded in the truck, we're en-route by 8. I'm nervous as I'm with a self-proclaimed first chair fanatic, meeting up with other first chair junkies. I know I'll be able to hold on for a while, or at least I hope.
