Whistler Ski & Snowboard Festival 2014

I just moved back to Vancouver after living in Whistler for the winter and am stoked on going back up for two weekends during the Whistler Festival!! The idea is to either head up on the Friday night or the Saturday morning, ride on the Saturday then take in the village festival scene and ride again Sunday for whoever is up for it.  Hopefully find a few others up for sharing accommodations and shredding together :-)

The festival features plenty of outdoor concerts, free board demos of just about any of the[masked] boards coming out next season, giveaways and pro riding competitions!!!

Please note if you plan to stay either or both nights and if you can drive/need a ride.  People will need to group up with others and find accommodations.

Fitzsimmons Chair between the two gondy's for an 8:30am Saturday morning meeting place. Leave or pm cell numbers to make life easier :-)


Cheers!

    Good to meet you all up at Whistler this past weekend. Though I wasn't quite skilled enough to ride with you guys. Looking forward to another event next time, if I can make it.

    We will wait until 9:00 and then go. My number is posted, nobody else posted a number so whoever is there for 9:00 we'll head up with.

    Anyone here yet?

  • Maya

    I'm already up here. It'd be nice to meet up with you all!

    Today it's pretty cloudy on the mountain. :( But it's supposed to clear up at about 4 for the weekend. Who should I pm my number to?

    April 11, 2014

    • Graham K.

      Hey Maya! You can send it to me or just post it up if you're comfortable with that.

      April 11, 2014

    • Maya

      I slept through my alarms. :( no way I'm going to be able to meet you all at 8:30. Sorry about that.

      April 12, 2014

  • Graham K.

    We just got to our room and it's huge so we have room for another person tomorrow night.

    April 11, 2014

  • Richard

    I'm going up on Sunday, leaving van around 7:30am, come back same day. Have one seat available.

    April 11, 2014

  • Maya

    It's showing up at the top of Whistler right now!

    2 · April 11, 2014

  • Edgar

    I'll be going up tomorrow (saturday), leaving van around 8am and coming back Sunday. Got one, maybe two seats.
    I'll be most likely riding both days

    April 11, 2014

  • Graham K.

    Please send or post numbers so people can contact each other once up there. We won't be waiting at the Fitzsimmons chair for everyone as there are always no shows. People tend to group off with the same riding skills anyway which will no doubt happen here too.

  • James B.

    I will be driving up on Thursday night and back home on Sunday. If anyone needs a ride TO WHISTLER on Thursday or FROM WHISTLER on Sunday hit me up!

    April 7, 2014

    • James B.

      Hey Ivan, unfortunately because my dad and his friends are over from Ontario I will probably stay at least for dinner. Which means it might be 6 or 7pm before I leave.

      April 10, 2014

    • Ivan

      Thanks for the heads up James. I think I rather get back in town a little earlier since it's a work day the next day. I've just bought bus tickets for there and back. Hope to see you up there on Sunday!

    Let's go for an 8:30am meet at the Fitzsimmons Chair in the village Saturday morning. My number is[masked]

    April 8, 2014

    • Simon L.

      Hi Graham. I'm taking a shuttle up there early Saturday morning. Since I'm new here, I'd really like some company. Hopefully I can meet you all there.

      April 9, 2014

  • Graham K.

    For those still looking for a lift http://www.epicrides.ca does keep shuttles to and from Whistler.

    April 9, 2014

  • Graham K.

    Three of us have a hotel near Lost Lake and might need a 4th. We are staying on the Friday and Saturday night, likely going to party in the village on Saturday night so someone with the same plan would be cool.

    1 · April 8, 2014

  • Simon L.

    Is anyone driving there? I do appreciate a ride if possible.

    April 7, 2014

    • Simon L.

      That sounds great. If I can get a ride I'd really appreciate it. And since there's a festival going on up there, hopefully we can leave Vancouver early Saturday morning so that we can start snowboarding as soon as the mountain opens at 8:30. I hope that's not too much to ask.

      Staying in Squamish for the weekend so will just see you guys up there! What time and where are we meeting on Saturday?! :-)

      April 8, 2014

  • Simon L.

    I found a package deal 2 nights stay including lift passes, for roughly $600 for 2 people. I'd love to split the cost if anyone's interested. Please let me know.

    April 7, 2014

  • Ivan

    I'll be coming up just for the day on Sunday the 13th. Anyone driving up?
