I'm tempted to go. But not sure it's worth it, 6 hour drive for me over the rockies, if lucky. Where are you staying? Just curious.

i will probably go. friday should be decent, i don't know if i will go all weekend lol. its easier to be picky when you live close.

6 hrs is a long drive for only a partial hill. Sunshines not going to be fully open and the chairs that they normally open first will be some very short runs. Should be a good time as long as you know what to expect. I've been reading some good things about lake louise so maybe consider that place too. Calgarys normally a pretty boring city but I can't complain with the amount of hills within a 3-4 hr drive.

Well.. I am driving 11.5 hours to ride. I couldn't find anyone to ride with so I am just traveling/riding alone at this point. I have a decent "snowboard-bum" vehicle so that is always an option ;)
I obviously would prefer finding somewhere to stay or splitting hotel with someone but I don't really want to wake up to a missing kidney or all my gear stolen.
Where are you driving from?

Open day has been moved forward to Thursaday. Should be some good stuff up there but keep in mind it is early season so dont expect the world. I think they will have 4 chairs open, Standish, Strawberry, Wolverine and Wawa.

ya i was kinda expecting thats all that would be open.

lol no way i would drive all the way from rough rider land for opening days.

Where the heck ya coming from? thats fucking nuts to drive that far by yourself but good for you for making that trek. We took a 7 hr trip to kelowna last year and that was not a pleasant trip and there was 10 of us in 3 trucks(all had 4x4 and winters too), the road conditions were pretty intense and we lost count with the amount of cars in the ditch. The forecast around here looks pretty clear so roads shouldnt be too bad but storms can happen pretty fast. We had a mini snowstorm yesterday that lasted maybe an hour or so and that jammed things up real nice.

I live/work in Saskatchewan.. anything over 300ft vertical is a good time :)
You don't ever want to be in my world (of snowboarding) :laugh:
