Probably. Vaccinations have been made available to all adults over 18 living and or working in Whistler as of today.

Still snowing to the valley....has anyone checked in on ReductiMat? Ensure he's not inflicting self harm.

Hopefully he is off getting his shot. The faster everyone gets vaccinated up there, the better the chances of opening. Its been quite the shit show.

Close the bars and restaurants (take out only) and it'll be fine.

The housing situation for the resort staff is the main problem. It has always been an issue up there. If you stuff 8-10 people in a place made for 4, it makes it REALLY hard to isolate when your roommate shows up positive.

Thanks bruv, doing great!  I've got Whistler to myself right now and everyone is getting vaccinated.

Snow levels are so hard to gauge in this pandemic time warp. Worth keeping in mind that in years past, WSSF would just be starting. There'd be a gigantic jump in the valley and all sorts of winter shenanigans happening. With that in mind, the valley is looking good I think but snow ramps up aggressively a bit below top of fitz. This week's summer-like temps with no night time refreeze ought to put a dent in it though.

What is everyone riding in the park this year? New bike or gear?

I got an ex-rental V10 from coastal culture after closing day last year, so I'm set apart from cushcore in it.

Hahahah, new bike.  That's funny!

...well, my buddy did get a new bike, but he scoured the Sea to Sky and the Lower Mainland back in February and likely got the last Nomad till 2022.

To Angu58: Out of interest, how are the 'relatively flat' case numbers looking right now? Not to be a dick, oh nevermind, to be a dick, looks like daily cases have more than doubled in the past month.

Im of the opinion that WBP will likely not be opening on May 21. Id be happy to be wrong.
