This past weekend (Jan 19-20), the young associates of FH&P, joined their peers from all over BC to hit the beautiful slopes for the 7th annual Big White ski trip, organized by CBA BC Young Lawyers Association. This event was first created and organized in 2013 by FH&P’s very own Nancy Ling, who wanted a winter alternative to the numerous golf tournaments that take place in the summer, that allow lawyers to create meaningful networks while still enjoying the outdoors. Lawyers bring their spouses and friends for a weekend filled with all types of mountain activities ( skiing, snowboarding, and après ski, to mention a few), and get to mingle with their peers from other law firms all over BC outside of the suits. The event is open to all young lawyers all over BC, and provides lunch, dinner, and drinks throughout the weekend!
What better way to de-stress than breathing fresh mountain air and skiing with like-minded people? None!
