creekside would be awesome.
But I'm not down with the Blackcomb expansion. They need to keep the dirtbags on the Whistler side.
Imagine the May opening long weekend "SuRReY RePreSent" spreading through the whole resort.

Aha! The bastards are gouging us just so they can line their filthy pockets by expanding the bike park! [sarcasm].

Watch the bike park ticket prices start rising with each expansion phase. It might be to the point where it rivals the winter season prices. Not to mention the number of riders that will also be on the increase. Expansion may not necessarily be a good thing for the riders

When you consider the Portes du Soleil in Europe charge 104 euros ($140) for a three day lift pass you kind of have to wonder what WB do with that money. Granted, PdS do considerably less in the way of trail maintenance, but they run WAY more lifts and cover a far larger area of terrain.

Yeah, my bad. Looks like the number I gave above was for the Winter tickets. Which makes a mockery of WB ski passes also…

Still, my point stands. A week's pass for ~ 15 lifts and a vast amount of terrain for ~$140, vs WB pass at $150 for 3 days and 2 lifts.

Do they do flowy-jumpy trails like Dirt Merchant, A-Line and Freight Train? Or is it mostly natural, whatever is there type stuff?
