Whistler Creekside, Saturday Jan 11th, 8:30AM

The forecast looks promising (http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/the-mountain/snow-and-weather/index.aspx) :)

Let's meet up and have fun at Whistler for a day trip on Saturday!
Meeting point: outside of Guest Services in Creekside (not Whistler Village) - there is a bench just outside of the door (it's same building as the ticket booth)

I can drive up to 3 people + gear (or 4 people if you don't mind being cozy in the back), but please note that if you'd like to carpool together I leave early in the morning (around 6:00am from Lougheed Mall area). If I have to pick up someone from downtown, that means I have to leave even earlier.

If you're a beginner, you may want to make sure you have someone to ski/ride with so you don't end up by yourself.

    Friendly reminder to everyone - the forecast for tomorrow is snow and high winds. Make sure you bring your waterproof / windproof gear with you in order to better enjoy the day on the mountain. If you can't make it for 8:30 meeting or would like to meet later in the day, you can txt me at (604)[masked]

    See you guys tomorrow!

    • Andreas

      If not, I can take 1 more person w/ gear <168cm on my way up from Richmond. If I'm driving I plan to go through dwtwn. I may return to Rupert if Lions Gate is jammed.

      I think there will be enough snow that getting up the speed to hit the pylons might be difficult ;)

      Ok, human golf it is! I hope you have some steel skipoles!

    I may cancel my RSVP for Saturday, and create a meetup for Sunday instead. It's looking like the alpine may not open on Saturday.

    January 9, 2014

    • Jen

      It's looking like it's going to snow harder on Saturday than Sunday, so alpine probably more likely to open on Sunday. I'm going to take my chances and go Sunday

    • James B.

      I might just have to go up both days haha!

    We have ended up at the apine lodge (www.alpinelodge.com) for friday and saturday nights. They still had availability if anyone wants to stay over :)

  • James B.

    Oh my god the snow!!!! Going to have a crapload this weekend! It might be worth it haha! I am definitely interested! Will be heading up from Rupert and Grandview. If anyone wants to meet up and combine rides I am interested!

      Yup, Sounds good. So far I have offered Dino, Will and Trina a ride. That would make me full if they decide to take the offer. We can either meet at Whistler Creekside gondola or Blackcomb Base 2, not too sure which mountain is going to be better this weekend. Im leaning towards whistler though as it has more of a base.

      January 8, 2014

    • James B.

      Hey Trina, I emailed you please reply asap so I can verify you want to hitch a ride with us!

      January 9, 2014

  • Patrick P.

    Anyone have room for 2? We are in New Westminster near Hwy 1.

    January 8, 2014

    • Raz

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.
