2012-03-21 Third day

Posted 03-21-2012 at 07:39 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

No new snow today, unfortunately. Everything's still tracked from yesterday. The wind has died down, so the glacier's open, so a lot of people are back up there, and that's good. However, I'm feeling two hard days of riding in my legs, and that's bad. I took today to do some riding with the family. As anyone who's married knows, that's a total production. Thinking back on it, I really didn't do much of anything significant today. Did warmups in the morning, came back to the unit and waited decades...

2012-03-20 Second day

Morning Update:

Whistler got some new snow overnight -- about 8" at the top of the Whistler gondola. Lot of wind, too. They actually had stuff on and off standby, and weren't allowing singles on any lifts. Not that one person on a lift was very likely - way more crowded today. Probably some combination of everyone coming out to enjoy the new snow, and people not being allowed onto the glacier.

I had an eye-opening experience first thing off the gondola. Decided...

2012-03-19 First Whistler day

Posted 03-19-2012 at 05:31 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Morning Update:

Got to the line-up on Wizard Express about 8:15 and they were already loading. None of this "wait until the exact second before opening" shit like some mountains (+1). Took maybe 2 minutes to get on (+1) which is the longest wait so far today (+1). They have a singles queue which people actually seem to use properly, i.e. I didn't see any small groups pretending to be singles. 'Course probably not worth it with the small lines. The only thing that bugged...

2012-03-18 We're heeeeeeeerrre!

After a frantic morning of running around, dropping the dog off at the kennel, packing, panicking, we finally left home around 11:45 -- more than an hour sooner than I expected! We got to Whistler about 2:30 (took time for lunch). The Marquise Hotel, where we're staying, is just off the Wizard Express lift as near as I can tell. It' definitely ski-in ski-out though, so stopping for lunch won't be a problem. Suite is a bit small but certainly nice enough, especially for the ridiculously low price...
