Hey all, My name's Dylan Gillespie and I'm super stoked to be one of the Grouse Park bloggers for this season! I've been skiing Grouse all my life, and got into the park/freeski scene a few years ago, though I love doing anything with skis on my feet. I live really close to Grouse, so you can be sure to see me lapping the park on weekends and after school. If you see me, stop me and say hi! I'm usually wearing a orange jacket or black hoody, and blue pants. I always enjoy meeting someone new and spining laps with another stoked rider!
Now overall, the weather's been pretty good this season which has let the Grouse Park Crew put together an AMAZING park setup, week after week. Add a bunch of new and improved features for them to work with, and you've got one of the best parks Grouse has seen in a long time. So be sure to get up there as soon as you can and check out either the Quiksiver Park or the Paradise Jib Park, both of which are sweeeeet right now.
I will be posting numerous edits, photos, and videos thoughout the season, and you can check those out on my Vimeo page and my Flickr page (which shall be set up with content in the near future).
In the mean time, here are a couple of my favourite photos from my past season.

I'm not going to sit here and claim I'm any good at photography, because I'm not. I'm really hoping to improve this year, because right now, I can't tell the differance between f-stop and flash sync. But very, VERY rarely I can sometimes click the shutter button on my Casio point-and-shoot at the right moment, which I was luckily able to do here.
That's all I got for now guys, but keep checking back for more great updates from me and my fellow bloggers.
