July 31 Storm from Katie Holden on Vimeo.

It hasn't rained in Whistler for what feels like forever. After a cold + wet June, which I thankfully missed, it has been non-stop sun. There was no rain in the forecast but this afternoon the skies got dark and the wind picked up and it absoluetly poured. I love rain like that...and apparently so does everyone else, it was pure comedy.

There was a fair bit of lightning too which is kinda dangerous this time of year given how dry it is. The heli's have been running nonstop since the rain stop undoubtably on the fire patrol.

In other news, slopestyle went down at Crankworx Colorado today and Whistler local Brandon Semenuk crushed everyone and took home the gold. Nice work Brandon!!
