Bruce is now where he asked to be left. Now that we have been there, I understand why he picked this place. It's called Top of the World located in the Purcell mountains.
The day was perfect. Blue skys, calm winds and beautiful early evening light and great company of close friends. Emilie and I picked out spot and threw Bruce's ashes screaming "we love you daddy!".
Then we spent the next hour sharing this wonderful moment, enjoying the view and having a fine drink of scotch.
It feels good to fulfill Bruce's wish. Onward & forward / LIFE IS GOOD!

It was only wright to be honoring Bruce where he skied most of life. Lake Louise will miss Bruce...Lining up on top of Whitehorn ridge/second gate, the sky started clearing. We cheered Bruce down the ridge and skied away. When having a great day skiing at the Lake, Bruce had the habit of visiting the "Table" through out the day. It was only right to honor this area with some of Bruce's ashes. So now there is a couple places you can go say Hi to Bruce. Thank you so much to all of you present skiing for him. It was a memorable day.
Lastly, we will be spreading the main body of Bruce's ashes, this comind Thursday (weather permitting). Emilie and I. will take a helicopter flight to a mountain top in the Purcels called "Top of the World). Bruce's remains will be spread where he wanted to be...in the mountains.

This past Saturday, March 6th, on what would have been Bruce's 51st birthday, 51 of our friends lined up on the ridge above Feuz bowl to spread Bruce's ashes on the ski slope that he skied his last powder runs. It was under a blue sky that brought friends together in celebration to honour Bruce's life. Bruce's spirit was very present. We could all feel his energy skiing with us as we were fulfilling on his wish. Loud cheers filled Eagle's Eye patio on the mountain top gathering friends from all over.
A big thank you to all of you for attending this wonderful celebration; to Mark Groehl and Bill Marsh as they took unforgetable footage of the day. For those of you who could not attend, there will some images and video posted on the blog shortly.
As Bruce would say; "Best f..ing day ever!"
We love you man. Forever in our memories.

During the last week of Bruce's life with us, he described with great details, how he wanted his ashes spread. A few days before Bruce went to the Calgary hospital, a snow storm had brought a great accumulation of snow. A member of the ski patrol gave Bruce a little wink and dropped the rope for him. Bruce skied a chute called Mustang Sally where he left his tracks in the powder. He went back 3 times and skied the same chute because it was so good. He talked about his tracks proudly.
On Saturday, March 6th (Bruce's birthday)we will be spreading Bruce's ashes in Feuz Bowl from the top of Mustang Sally, leaving our own tracks in the same slope. It will be a ski day that we will put on video. The day will follow with a celebration. More details will come.
The Lessor family is doing well. As each day passes Emilie and I always talk about daddy. We honor him with our thoughts, ask him for guidance and protection. Bruce is with us no doubt.
Keep it between the trees!
