chupacabraman Drive up a road to where the snow starts, then continue on the snowmobile. Or you could use skins.

Jenzo Guessing that's gonna be jammed with people. Thanks for the info though.

How did your friends get up there with that much snow? Supposed to get more snow for next few days too.

Yea, I sent em an email anyways to see what they say. Silver Star is slated for the 24th. Too bad I scheduled an appointment that day, no freshies for me. Duh!

I decided to opt out of going to Alberta as it looked like crap and I don't have all my new gear yet, but if Revvy opens early (meaning before Silver Star) I'll be there...

Sorry I got that wrong.... Louise & Sunshine have 50cm bases. Oh well...
Still, I wish a giant foot would come down and crush these people...
