I made the mistake of sitting in the back on the right side of the car and all i saw was an hour and a half of the side of a carved out mountain zooming by (which will make you car sick really fast. haha) When i could see around my cousin to the left of me the view of the coast was pretty amazing though.
I went to blackcomb/whistler for 07 spring break. I thought that blackcomb was a better snowboarding experience between the two. The whole trail layout seemed more fun/unique. The bottom half was pretty slushy but the top half was perfect. And i think that shredding the easy runs with friends was the most fun ive had snowboarding. You can spend a whole afternoon zig-zagging down the whole width of the face of blackcomb on the easy trails. Its awesome just doing spins, presses, w/e on small stuff ppl have made/found on the sides of these trails. It's just a laid-back, good time
I would never want to live in vancouver if i worked in whistler. The one time i went there i wasnt even driving and i thought i was going to go insane. The highway just keeps winding back and forth for 2 hours.
