Blackcomb - Horstman Glacier - Summer Opening?

i know it's open tomorrow for the last day this summer, but does anyone know if the following is true:

I heard that it IS open for summer skiing/riding, but that 95% of it is blocked off for "camp of champions" riders who're paying big bucks for pro instruction, leaving only 1 T-bar and two so-so runs for the riding public to use.

is this true? or is the whole glacier open for riding? including the park/jumps built for the camp?

if someone knows one way or the other and posts by morning, that'd be awesome!

There's Camp of Champ's, and Dave Murphy's up there. I dropped "big bucks" from my wallet, working a shit job I hated, to go there, and actually ride a legit mountain for the first time (Mont Avilla/ Mont St Sauveur is a bit small really), What you said is true. The Camp of Champs section is barricaded, and they check for your Camp pass. But, Dave Murphy's, however, has a park-the setup isn't as good as Camp of Champs obviously, but it's something. And you can easily sneak in there. When you come off the lift, near the Horseman Hut, just ride down the path, and near the deloading part of the T-bar, just hook a right and ride into Dave Murphy's. Hike a few features, and what not. They might check for ID at the T-bar on the Dave Murphy side, but from the part where you cut in, you can easily hit a few box and rail lines and catch the T-bar on the left. For jumps, you're probablly gonna have to hike it.
