There's no shortage of incredible terrain and snow in BC, that much is certain. It's a question of whether they can be developed into viable businesses and thriving resorts for it to even make the...

Lots of reasons to carry gear in your bag if you ride at a big resort. When I'm somewhere small, sure, but if I'm in the alpine at Whistler it's an hr trip down to the car to get shit. Even at that,...

Expansion at Whistler is a very long ways off, and it won't be very large when it happens. They're limited by the parks and what not that surround the resort. It's pretty much overrun as it is, and...

That's a terrible metric for measurement. A "size 13.5" boot" is not the same physical size as a 13.5 inch shoe, work boot, basketball shoe, Gucci loafer, or glass slipper for christ's sake. I don't...

I don't think there's anywhere in the world or any manufacturer that uses inches as their size measurement for their footwear. A size 13 in US and the UK isn't even 12 inches let alone 13 and a half...

Whistler is expensive for a lot of reasons, but don't think that the prices have anything to do with the crowds. It's the largest, but also the busiest in all of North America. That doesn't mean...

I've gotten out almost once every week for most of the season. Not ideal and def not what I would hope or up to usual par but sometimes life is a little complicated. Even though it's a chance to get...

The T Rice isn't a park board. It's an all mountain twin with a medium stiff flex. It's better at high speeds cruising, powder, and off piste than it is at jibs. It'll do well on the jumps though....
