For WinFS’s Beta 1 / Sql Server 2005 RTM, work took Aubrey and I to Whistler. They put us up at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler, very nice. I got a little snowboarding in and Aubrey got a very nice pedicure. Every time I go there, I’m overwhelmed by how large the mountains are. It spent over 2 hours snowboarding and only road the lift twice. The snow was a little on the sparse side and it got a bit cold once the sun went down. Okay, really cold! But it was a great trip – worthy of the 5 years it took to ship Sql Server 2005. Thanks Microsoft!
