A powerful storm is sweeping through Vancouver today bringing with it high winds and torrential rainfall. But while the wet and windy weather isn’t exactly enjoyable for those of us who have to venture outside into the elements, it will be music to the ears of the region’s ski and snowboard enthusiasts.
