Whistler/Blackcomb - Feb 15 (Saturday)

Lets get going to Blackcomb Whistler on Feb 15 or 16th. Been itching to get out and it looks like there will FINALLY be snow next week. Might get some fresh stuff instead of just ice! Haha! If there is enough snow, it might be a good idea to split on a hotel. That will be decided closer to that weekend!

Figure we can meet at Base 2 (Blackcomb Gondola Midstation) at around 8:15.

    Hey guys! How was the traffic, parking, lines and snow? Have you been doing more waiting than shredding? Love to get an update on what your experiencing. Have a great time. Regardless, I'm super jealous I'm not up right now. :)

      Sunday was busy with long lineup at the gondola but skiing was fantastic. Soft snow and powder! I heard traffic was treacherous on the way back due to a head on collision but I already cleared that area so I was not affected.

      Living up here I'll be riding again on Sunday. Supposed to be solid with a bit of a dump on Saturday night and more on Sunday.

    I will try my best to arrive at Base 2 Gondola for 8:00AM to 8:15AM. Everyone else who wants to meetup should try for that time as well. Its going to be extremely busy so just make sure you give yourself lots of time to get there! Parking may also be a hassle, so if Base 2 is full I will head back down to park in one of the free bottom lots. In the end, if we cant meet at the beginning there is always lunch break, which will most likely be at Glacier Greek lodge on Blackcomb. Looking forward to getting lots of snowboarding in tommorow as its been a while and has been no snow around! Hopefully everyone will have a great time!

  • Monica

    Gentlemen, have you decided on a date yet? Is it Saturday, Sunday or both? This dump is tempting me. However, last dump led me to my temptation. Which caused me to spend the majority of my time in lines due to the crowds. Just shows you how much we all have been wanting more snow. Keep me posted on the consensus. Thanks guys! :)

    February 12

    • Monica

      Hi Gentlemen! Thank you for your replies. Unfortunately, I have prior engagements for Saturday. If anything I will head up on Sunday. I would love an update on the amazing powder that is accumulating plus and hits and misses you can advise me of. Hope to ski or ride with you guys soon. Have a great time on Saturday! :)

      Hey Monica! If you're heading up on Sunday it would be cool to meet. I'll be on the hill again Sunday.

    I live on the North Shore. I can drive or shotgun, doesn't matter. The only thing is logistics, if we are gonna stAy there overnight or Saturday only...

    February 12

    • Sean

    Hey James, can I catch a lift with you?

    February 12

    • James Becker

      For sure, I am going to only go up for Saturday as well. Want to get some biking in this weekend too :). If Saturday works for you as well then great!

  • Dino

    Hi folks, Whistler?? Got me! ^^

    I would also be keen on staying there over night. Have still 2 days left on my edge card. Does someone have a good tip where to spend the night? Hey James, can you give me a ride in your car?

    Cheers

    • James Becker

      For sure. It looks like I am down for Saturday, Sunday looks so tempting although it seems like staying in Squamish OR driving back up Sunday morning might be just as cheap if not cheaper because any hotels I could find in Whistler were pretty outrageous.

      February 12

    • James Becker

      If not booked up haha, anything I search for within Whistler is booked/unavailable unfortauntely. Even the regular Secret Suites is booked. Its looking like because there hasnt been any fresh snow...everyone wants to get out there haha.

      February 12

  • Goran

    Overnight sounds good but even a day trip works!

    February 12

  • Sean

    hi James, I can drive from downtown Vancouver; I have my mid-size suv with snow tires. let me know. Sean

    • James Becker

      I live at Grandview/Rupert St. I am not too keep on driving into DT Van as traffic coming home is usually unbearable. Especially if we hit Lionsgate Bridge. Unless we meet somewhere off HWY1 (Taylor Way, St Davids United Church is popular for meeting up). I know there are usually quite a few people who leave from DT so I am sure others will be interested. Generally there are lots coming from my area as well so filling up a couple cars is usually pretty easy haha! I am still not sure which day I want to go either. MIght end up staying the night if they get enough snow :D.
