    November 23, 2012

  • Maria De Los A.

    Hey Does anybody still have space for 2 more people with skis? (me and my friend)

  • JennS

    Okay... So I might be able to make it, but there's no way I can drive, I'll be too exhausted. I'll be coming back from surrey, so if anyone has a spot left in their car for me and my skis and could meet me along highway 1 I'd be very grateful!

    November 22, 2012

    • JennS

      Taylor way would be perfect for me.

      November 22, 2012

    • JennS

      think I found a ride :)

      November 22, 2012

  • JennS

    Arg! Was just informed I might have to work this weekend... Would anyone have room to squeeze Maria +1 in their car?? I should know for sure tomorrow...

    November 21, 2012

    • JennS

      Next weekend is 110% :)

      November 21, 2012

    • Maria De Los A.

      Oh no Jen! that sucks! well, you're going next week anyway :). In the meantime, i'll ask for a ride from someone else, thanks anyway!

      November 21, 2012

  • Jodi

    Hi everyone :) I am new to the group and would be interested in going up for Saturday only if I could carpool with someone. I live in maple ridge but could meet somewhere and contribute to gas. I am a fairly new snowboarder and just learned last year. I have been up to whistler a few times before :)

    November 20, 2012

    • Andrey

      Hi Jodi. I can give you a ride. I'll be in downtown in Vancouver at 7am to pick up one more person.

      November 20, 2012

    • Jodi

      Hi Andrey - thanx for the offer :) I won't be able to make it up his weekend after all but if you are going up in December I'd be interested in going then...

      November 21, 2012

  • Edgar

    Damn! No more spots left at a hostel!...
    Anyone up to share a hotel room and snowboard both days?
    Also, I got room for 1 person (maybe 2), let me know if you need a ride...

    November 21, 2012

  • JennS

    If anyone is interested in heading up next friday

    November 20, 2012

  • Edgar

    Is anyone staying overnight?

    November 20, 2012

    • James B.

      Depends what kind of hotel I can get for points, it would definitely be cheaper than a hostel. Most likely I would ask only 10$ or so a person. Most likely could fit up to 4 people, as it will probably be a 1 bedroom. And pretty much every hotel at Whistler has a hot tub so that isnt too worrisome. Another option would be to wait and book another weekend. Might be easier...so no one has to scramble.

      November 20, 2012

    • Edgar

      That sounds awesome! I will be staying overnight, so let me know if down for that… Otherwise we can plan it in advance, both works with me!

      November 20, 2012

  • JennS

    Blackcomb will be open this weekend too :)

    November 14, 2012

    • James B.

      Sounds like it could be fun, if its free that would be awesome. At least on the site it doesnt mention entry fee or anything...

      November 15, 2012

    • JennS

      Pretty sure it's free... And the lifts are only open til 3 anyways

      November 19, 2012

  • JennS

    If anyone wants to head up the weekend after, I'm going up for the whole weekend and have a hotel booked... got a great deal, but would love another person or two to split the cost with :)

    October 30, 2012

    • Rick

      I would!

      November 5, 2012

    • JennS

      I made a meet up event here http://www.meetup.com...­ :)

      November 11, 2012

  • JennS

    I might have room for 1 more, depending which car I can get my hands on... I'll try to confirm that soon.

    November 11, 2012

  • James B.

    Whistler is lookin good! Hopefully we will get some powder opening weekend....that would be awesome haha!

    Hi, Eastwood,do you have room for me or Herbert?? I am not sure from your comment... If not I'll still try to figure out the way to get there

    November 10, 2012

    • Eastwood

      Sorry, my car's full this time...

      November 11, 2012

  • Eastwood

    Hey everyone: it looks like Herbert, Mariko, kayleigh, and Mark still need rides. Can anyone else pitch in to drive?

    November 11, 2012

  • Herbert

    If anyone has a car spot available let me know... 778.228.4384. I live downtown but can meet somewhere else.

    November 9, 2012

    • Eastwood

      Herbert, seeing that you've got more experience organising Whistler trips: would you recommend meeting by the Long Horn? What's a good meeting time (considering that it's opening weekend)?

      November 10, 2012

    • Herbert

      Long horn is great. That's where we usually meet up. Also be really specific about the meeting time. I usually say "meetup at 8:45am and head to the gondola at 9am sharp". If not you'll be waiting for a bunch of people and waste time. The mountain opens at 8:30 so you may want to meet earlier. It's up to you. Ideally you also mention your cell # in case people are late so they can catch up with you on the mountain. But it's up to you.

      November 10, 2012

  • Mark

    Hi Eastwood, do you have room for one more?

    November 10, 2012

    • Eastwood

      Sorry, don't know if I have more room for another passenger + gear, wish I had a larger car... Hopefully you could still join us? Maybe Rick would be able to help with carpooling?

      November 10, 2012

  • Colin G

    I would like to join (either day) but need a ride (it's not worth it to buy a whole Greyhound ticket to Whistler when they only have a small percentage of their runs open).
    Does anyone have a spot left in their car (I'll pitch gas money of course)? I'm downtown but can meet at any Skytrain station that is convenient.

    October 31, 2012

    • Eastwood

      Yup, there's room for your gear! What do you think would be a good time?

      November 10, 2012

    • Eastwood

      Probably early... aiming to arrive by opening. Let's figure out within the next two weeks.

      November 10, 2012

  • JennS

    Just an FYI... Groupon has a bus trip to whistler... Good for the whole season :)

      November 9, 2012

    Hey I'm looking for a ride up on Saturday the 24th... Will contribute to your gas fund!!!

    November 5, 2012

    • Mark

      November 5, 2012

    • Mark

      November 5, 2012

  • Grace

    AHHhhh, work x-mas party happening on the 24th. i already booked the limo and such crap. this woulda been great. i'll wait for the next meetup.

    October 30, 2012

  • JennS

    Saturday would work better for me... I might have to wrk Sunday night... I can probably get a car and drive up from kits if need be :)
