      Meetup point is Base 2/gondola on blackcomb... if you head up the wizard chair you can ski down to the top of the gondola/bottom of the excelerator and meet everyone there....or we are meeting for lunch towards the top of the mountain :)

    • Mikko

      Hey Serena! Booked two rooms at the Westin but we're all guys so not sure if you're comfortable with that. Otherwise, hope to see you up at the slopes and get some runs with ya. :)

      November 29, 2013

  • James B.

    Darren and I are sharing a ride up n staying overnight. We have space for 2 more. Txt me[masked]-6204. Looks like we got quite a few staying Saturday eh? Hotel is gonna be full haha!

    November 29, 2013

    • JennS

      I've got room too :). Up Saturday, back Sunday

  • Gary

    is Saturday the main day everyone's going including those not staying overnight?

    November 28, 2013

    • Mikko

      My buddies and I are most likely going both days but I will be alone most of Saturday since my friends are getting full day ski lessons. I'm more or less the same level as you so if you wanna do some runs together, text me![masked]

      November 28, 2013

    • JennS

      There will be people both days.... Just get to one of the meetup points in the description :). I've found it too difficult to try to coordinate on the mountain :(

      November 28, 2013

  • James B.

    So I have decided I am heading up Saturday morning. I see a couple of people driving but I think if anyone is staying overnight we should combine rides...save some gas....email me if you want to discuss it!

    November 28, 2013

  • JennS

    Im going to start looking into hotels... Who would be up for staying the saturday night???

    November 21, 2013

    • JennS

      Hey Mikko, we ended up at the Westin too! see you there!

      1 · November 28, 2013

    • Mikko

      Yay! See you at the hot tub after the lifts close! Bringing some booze too so it should make for a good night!

      1 · November 28, 2013

  • Gary

    I'll drive up saturday morning, but I normally return back to vancouver that same evening as I'm beat the next morning. But if enough people are staying overnight maybe.

    November 28, 2013

  • James B.

    UGGGG can't decide whether to go up sat or sun. The weather sais not much snow on fri/sat but it looks like there will be less wind.....arg! I'm still going to say Sunday, so if anyone needs a ride there or back let me know.

    November 28, 2013

  • JennS

    So we've got carl+1 and Ricky and me +1... anyone else want to stay over?? it'll be $45 or less... I'll do some serious looking tonight. The only problem with most of the rental places is that they require a minimum stay... but if people are willing to pay 10-15 more, we could get a decent place for 2 nights :)

    November 26, 2013

    • JennS

      Driving up saturday morning, back sunday evening.... if conditions aren't great I'll probably head up a bit later in the morning (leave at 7 or 8) saturday and spend the day in the village instead of on the mountain....

      November 28, 2013

    This time no luck, only Friday available. next time going,

    November 27, 2013

  • James B.

    I will be leaving from Grandview and Rupert St. I have room for another 2 people in my car. Please send me a message if you would like a ride up to Whistler for Sunday morning back Sunday evening. I am still skeptical for conditions on Saturday, so I am just going to aim for a 1 day trip this weekend. Let me know if you need a ride!

    Hey!! So hotels are starting to pop up... Will be 30-45 each if we have 4 in a room, depending on the deal i can get. Obviously will go down a bit if one or two more want to join :) I'll probably book something early next week...

    1 · November 23, 2013

    • JennS

      I saw that one... But I think it's quite small if we want to get a few ppl in there.... It's the holiday inn I think. The 1br is the Westin, not the hilton, oops

      An option for 6 persons: https://www.airbnb.ca/...­

    Hi,

    I have a studio which sleeps 4 persons with 2 spots left in Whistler village via Suite secrets at the whistler homepage. Cost is 110 excl tax, i.e. would be around 30 each if we are 4 persons. Jenns and Ricky, would you be interested in sharing? If so I'll book that later on today. Carl

    November 25, 2013

    • JennS

      Just saw this.... I've got a friend coming up as well I think.... And perhaps James?? It did you decide to do a day trip only?

      November 25, 2013

    • carl w.

      ah ok. We are in on a larger apartment as well, let me know if I can help in any way!

      November 25, 2013

      Any feedback from the first trip on the conditions up there? I'm still waiting on my gear (being sent from home), hopefully arriving before the snow does.

    • James B.

      It was good...they still need a ton more snow. Plus 5 will wreck what little they have

      November 19, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
