First trip up to the Forbidden Plateau area in the winter.  Forbidden Plateau was once a bustling location for skiing on the island and I have met friends who used to ski here as children.  Remarkable to find the ski hill abandoned currently with the chair lifts still looming in the wind.  We drove up early Saturday morning only to find the road impassable in our Mazda 3.  We had to go back down to Courtenay to buy tire chains to get up the mountain.  On the trip into the city, we decided to pick up some “crazy carpets” for the trip down the mountain – fun!!!
