Well, today was flat out retahded (given that's only November 18th).

Cold, blower pow and zero lines for me till I left at noon… was not expecting that today. Sure, you had to be on your guard as the base is still super-low, but as long as you picked the right lines you had knee deep fun stuff for pretty much the entire morning.

Approximately when does Whistler usually open up Harmony, Symphony, the peak, etc each year? I realise we still need a fair bit more snow until that'll happen… is mostly everything usually open by Christmas time?

normally i would say yes by christmas. I remember a few years back peak didnt open til january due to sketchy avi conditions, but i think thats more of a rarity.

I remember that year… we came up at Christmas, got our skis and headed to Rogers Pass! So much terrain was skied in the Selkirks that year, cause they had the coastal snow pack…

Funny thing was, the local mountains were good

Spanky's was good in March…

Looking to ride the shore but don't know where to go?

I'm with you norton. Been skiing almost 40 years. Don't need to ski marginal thin conditions and hurt myself. I will likely be up this coming weekend though because the following weekend we move in the City.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

Gravity + Altitude + Snow = fun.

Rode out to Midstation today.. not quite worth it yet.

As I read somewhere, I don't have any skis that I dislike enough to ride quite this early
