Valhalla is probably you best bet I would think....Wildhorse is like 25min from my house, yet I know very little about it for some reason. If Wildhorse takes you above the elevation of the Summit chair at Whitewater I would say it could be epic as I know the mountains that they use, just not sure how high up they go exactly.
much appreciated, I will look into base elevation and keep an eye on temps. Hopefully there is a dump early next week though.

Here's a pic i took of Arsenal trapped in the whiteroom that I couldn't stop laughing at.
Holy crap.... that picture is amazing!

killclimbz As long as it hasn't been terribly warm, I got to think there are quality north facing shots that are holding great snow. atr3yu is definitely your man.

Some people are simply content to ride resort and I happen to be one of them. Different strokes for different folks. I certainly respect those who are interested in backcountry boarding and take it seriously. All the best.
How do you think the conditions would be for cat boarding after not having snow for almost 2 weeks? I will likely be in Nelson next week, around this time, and if it's still dry, wanted to contemplate doing a cat day with 2 others.

killclimbz Finally got your brain back in your skull?

Glad you had fun. There is nothing better. BC riding taked a serious commitment from yourself if you want to do it for a lifetime. Discipline and patience are key. The test is a lifetime. I am still taking it.
