Whistler!!!

Hi all. Nobody really took the lead in organizing this meetup but Miguel, Kia and I will be leaving downtown at 7am and plan to be ready in front of Longhorn (across from the Whistler Gondola) by 8:45am.
Keep in mind that there may be a line up/delay when picking up your ski pass...
Give me a shout on my cell[masked] in the morning if you want to meet up with us. 

So the snow is starting to fall... currently Blackcomb opening day is Nov 28th... Who's in for heading up November 16th? Probably planning on staying overnight at least... First weekend both mountains are open!

    I changed this meetup to this weekend, Saturday the 16th. Seeing as it was intended for the "Opening" day of Whistler haha :P. Im just trying to confuse everyone :D.....

    • JennS

      Then you have to change the description too ;)

      November 13, 2013

    • James B.

      I guess it would help if I paid attention....too much daydreaming :D

      November 13, 2013

  • James B.

    So I will be heading up for the day on Saturday. If anyone would like a ride just msg me. I will have 2-3 spots. Just a day ride for me.

    Any advice for a good place to get information on road conditions? Would snow tires / chains be required yet? I don't think I can make this weekend but next weekend should be good.

    November 13, 2013

    • James B.

      It can get bad on the road...especially with ice .... So yea definitely a good idea....also because of the grade of many hills its a good idea....it can be great road conditions much of the time.....but the few times you hit bad weather....you're gonna wish you had snows:-)

      Sounds like a good idea. I thought I had a few weeks to get this all sorted but will get onto it now.

    i need to get my board sharpened and waxed, any areas that do them in vancouver? otherwise I'll just get it done in whistler by the locals (they do them cheap)

    November 12, 2013

    • JennS

      Bunch of places around burrard and 4th... Not sure which is the best deal...

      November 13, 2013

    • Miguel

      My fav is VanSki on 271 East2nd st, is one block from Main st.

      November 13, 2013

  • James B.

    Ugg,.....weekend can't be here fast enough ;/ so pumped......I hope there will be some good snow for the opening weekend haha

    November 13, 2013

    • James B.

      Shorts and a T-shirt for me!

      November 13, 2013

    • James B.

      And apparently I just found out I might be working this weekend....excellent weekend to plan a office move haha.....I remain hopeful though!

      November 13, 2013

  • James B.

    Hard to focus on work when all I can think about is snoowwwww!!!!

    I hear there's nothing like getting first dibs on fresh powder on opening day. Saw some of their cam pics , looks awesome. Only whistler will be open, but their glacier runs are fun. Is there a meetup for the Nov16 opening day?

    November 12, 2013

    • JennS

      Feel free to create one :). Also check the "suggested" tab, someone might have already started on there too :)

      November 13, 2013

    I've never been to Whistler on the opening weekend. Any idea on how busy it usually gets??

    November 8, 2013

    • James B.

      Most likely as busy as any other weekend in the ski year...in the end, dont base whether your going to go or not on how the crowds are. Generally speaking its always busy at whistler...

      November 9, 2013

    • JennS

      You get free stuff if you're one if the first x people in line :)

      November 12, 2013

  • Steven

    Opening day is Saturday. Anyone else planning on going up for the day?

    November 12, 2013

      November 12, 2013

  • James B.

    So....I am ready to go.....I am now the blue knight in shining ski cloths...nothing like blue pants with blue coat with white helmet haha! Snow please hurry....I need to get out there!

  • JennS

    Snow!!!!!! Yay!!!! So who is up for staying Saturday night?

    November 7, 2013

    • James B.

      I might be, I would be heading up saturday morning like normal, then back sunday evening. I know Nick would probably be interested too...mark me down for 95% :P

      2 · November 7, 2013

  • James B.

    Ya... looks like more snow on the way for whistler by the end of the week, albeit not much but its a start haha!

    October 29, 2013

  • James B.

    It better snow soon....otherwise I might go insane.....I need my trees fix!

    October 25, 2013

    • JennS

      Doesn't look like it's in the cards.... Around this weekend was when there was that huge storm last year... Forecast is sunny, but at least the freezing level is dropping back to mid mountain. It needs to start snowing!!

      October 26, 2013

    • James B.

      Dang, yea of course a huge front is moving over Ontario. We definitely need to steal their weather. Next couple of weeks I'll definitely be watching the weather like a hawk.....waiting.....jus­t waiting......patiently..­...OK well....maybe while rocking back and forth muttering "snow"!
