grafta do you know Hemlock very well? I owe you a tour, you might as well carpool with the Donut man & we should hit it opening day? Whata ya say Donuts?
I know it's still a ways away but if people read it maybe we can get some more people too?

A friend and I checked out Hemlock on opening day last year, it was the first time I'd ever been there and I loved it. Planning to hit hemlock a bunch of times this year.
Didn't they give you a credit for $20 those first few days?
I went opening day, I can't remember how much it was but after the credit it was next to nothing, we came back the next day too.
They shut that deal down on day 3, I think?

If I go to hemlock, it'll be with the family. Very much doubt grafta and gf will want to shoehorn themselves into a Versa with the rest of us. Probably room on the roof rack tho'

Make sure you post something as soon as you see opening day coming up. I might miss it because I don't normally watch the hemlock website.

Wife and I are planning on hiking up seymour to the top of mystery the week before opening (if there's enough snow) to enjoy some untouched stuff. I'll post that as soon as the date's nailed down in case anyone wants to join in.

Dunno bout the dui and the states man.

Be dope to coordinate a hemlock mission tho. Nah, don't know it well at all. Just enough to figure out that if you hike even just a tiny bit there's lines to be had

Keep me in on when it opens too

Ya, I'm sure if I google it, it'll be right @ the top of the page.
Just have a shitty feeling I know what the answer is & so I haven't checked.

For the most part you don't need to hike @ all, only when it's all tracked out, & that takes quite a while when only 14 people are tearin' it up.


I don't know, can you count 14 guys combined in these 3 little vids? This was not this past opening day but the year before.
https://vimeo.com/33177557
https://vimeo.com/24259994
https://vimeo.com/33179160

Maybe there were only 9 of us?

Can you tell I'm starvin' for ridin' buddies? Pretty sad day when you can't find anyone that wants to play in that.

I'll post as much info as I can, usually it's Dec 16, that lands on a Sunday this year, so I'd guess between the 13th-15th this year.

I would have missed it had I not been going out with one of the bartenders.
They opened a week early & forgot to tell anyone.

Super keen for this season to start. Just scored a brand new DC jacket for $50 and about to get my season pass for Whistler. Just need a new set of bindings and I'll be waiting in line opening day with bells on haha

I don't remember there being credit, I just remember it costed about $20 the first weekend, then they upped the price as they opened more terrain.

You need a few days at the start of the season just to get your legs back, and it was still fun, I'm hoping for the same this season.
