Snowed In jokes fresh as powder

Jokes from Snowed In tour as fresh as the powder the four comedians rode on Hudson Bay Mountain before their show.

Jokes at the Snowed in Comedy Tour in Smithers last Thursday were as fresh as the powder the four comedians rode on Hudson Bay Mountain before their show.

Dan Quinn, Paul Myerhog, Arj Barker and Craig Campbell spent their visit tackling double-black runs at the ski hill as part of their combined snowboarding and stand-up tour of northern British Columbian ski towns.

It was Myerhog’s first time visiting Smithers and the keen snowboarder wasted no time seeking out challenging runs to explore at Hudson Bay Mountain.

He said the performers dedicated most of their time on the hill to the steep run called Cold Smoke.

“I’m not sure if I’ve ever been on a run that steep without it being considered to be a cliff,” he said.

“I was just like, this is phenomenal.

“It was really challenging, if there wasn’t fresh powder I think I would have died.”

The performers collected more than just notches on their snowboarding belt at the ski hill.

Experiences on the Hudson Bay T-bar, and the no-frills approach of some local skiers and snowboarders, provided prime comedy fodder for the show.

Myerhog performed a joke about the ski hill he had written just before his set.

“As a stand-up, when you’re having a great time on tour, that just kicks in that joke writing machine,” he said.

“Your eyes are wide open, you are looking for fun new ideas and stuff.”
