no need for the smart remark. I was asking how avaliable it is, I am aware of the area but I am unaware of how things go down. Now I do realize posting about buds is out there and not a "smart" thing to do, but I am not asking for you to hook me up during my visit nor am I asking anyone else to do a personal favor to someone they do not know. Right, this is my first post because I only read through things, I do not interact via posting on the threads. I was discussing this with someone in a class about mountain towns and the avaliability of specific things and Whistler came up, I sought to find an answer better than a search engine response. So yes, I am asking how availble it is, if bud is accessible or not. No harsh feelings homie, just not a avid poster, hope you understand. Riding is about respect, so should talking about it, right?
