They don't have a lot of terrain that they can expand out to. The master plan shows future lifts for Flute and Khyber on Whistler plus a Ruby Bowl lift on the other side of Spanky's and a lift on the...

Are you just bringing your DH bike? I would suggest bringing a trail bike too, so much to explore outside of the bike park.

I'd be happy to show you around some trails if you want a tour, just...

Generally speaking, April is a ton of fun, but significantly less snowfall than March.

This year, April would be a huge gamble in my opinion. Riding out might not even be an option by then. We've...

You might be reading his site incorrectly. It shows the actual lift run times for the past 7 days, not a schedule for the future. I think they're going to have a lot of work to do up there, but...

My first real board was a Legacy... had 11 or 11.5 boots, then switched to 10.5.

My next board was a regular-width and it made all the difference in the world. So much easier to carve. So much...

I got fresh tracks in a spot near the 7th water reservoir, was ~15cm on a sheet of ice, then went off the backside to check out Crystal and rode out. Friend made the mistake of doing Khyber's first...

I'd leave the pow boards at home if I were you guys (or bring two boards up). Just a bit of dust on crust yesterday and still some rocks poking through. I was on Blackcomb, but same reviews from a...

+1 for Whistler Alpine Guides. I did my AST 1 with them last year, rented a Prior split directly from them at the time. They only offered the 3 day course last year and can't fathom how you could...

Crazy up there today... did 6 laps on Harmony with zero line and fresh tracks/face shots every run. Super light snow in the alpine with spring slush from Olympic down.

That went better than expected... short gondy line at 9am, then decided to skin right up to Peak. We found some great windloaded pow up top. Wasn't ridable above Highway 86 so had a little nice hike...

Might as well grab the bindings online too, it's pretty easy to figure out from your boot or even shoe size.. I agree with not overthinking your first board purchase. What's your weight? Should be...

I've never heard of that brand, it'll probably be lower quality than anything you've rented.

There's good deals to be found online if you shop around for last year's stuff.

Whistler just confirmed they are opening this Saturday, Blackcomb and P2P on the 27th. We've had an inversion since yesterday, they're just blasting snow at the base. 9 day forecast looks promising,...

I'd think 158 looking at Salomon's sizing charts. Definitely if you plan on riding any pow.

F1EA, sure you aren't thinking of the Assassin? Salomon calls the Villain a jib board and rates it 4/10 flex.

Go for it. I'd suggest that you save up some funds over summer, Whistler isn't the cheapest place to live. Also, try to line up housing well in advance.

Yeah, I don't think you'll be able to lock down something for less than $25/night. You might get lucky with a sublet late in the season, but won't know until next year.

That's a really good location for Creekside, very short (5 minute) walk to the lift. Also close to all the Creekside bars, grocery store, liquor store, etc.

Might be worth locking that up if you...
