No, it was really flat light all day so no high speed runs. Also I was fighting a bit of a hangover!

No worries, I probably should have done the same thing! The ice waterfall was on an unmarked trail. We entered under the Big Red Express, between Jimmy's Joker and the Pony Trail. I saw untouched powder from the lift and knew I had to get on it! Entered the forrest and ended up on top of this ice sheet. Looked at the pics again last night and I think it was closer to 60 degrees!

The view from above, I was holding the phone pointing almost straight down at this point:


A little steeper than usual:


The garden of eden waiting for me at the bottom! And a relatively easy 35 degree slope:

Only downside is they had Unicorn still closed off from the competitions yesterday.

I spent the entire friggin' day doing jumps. Speaking of which, I think I owe Snowolf a thank-you for his advice.
The line up ar Mystery was brutal first thing in the morning but got much better once Brokton chair opened.....bit of a bummer that Unicorn was closed for racing Sat and Sun...

Was really flat light yesterday as well. I did not stay out too long.

I know where you were, there are some tricky spots in through there if you don't know where you're going. I haven't been down that exact spot but I've ended up on some 'well this was a bad idea' spots Thats Whistler for you, it's a big as place with some pretty gnarly spots inbounds that aren't always well signed, especially if you are off trail.

Fuck me, I gotta get up north at least once this season. Would be really nice to hit Whistler. Hell, I just need to get outta Seattle for a few days.

Finished my little season to date edit. There is some old footage and the same song but I added a bunch of different clips and some effects etc. Watch it in 720 cause a few clips were converted one too many times.

Hey, I need an answer to a question that has probably been asked a million times but I can't find it when I search. My buddy and I are staying at Whistler for a few nights the end of Feb and I want to know if the 7-Eleven's sell multi-day tickets or single day tickets. If they sell only single day tickets, is it only for that day, or can I buy like 3 single day tickets to get us through our 3 days of riding? This is all assuming that 7-eleven is still the cheapest way to buy lift tickets.

7-11 (any in the Vancouver area) sells single day tickets good any time that season as far as I know. So you can buy 3 and just use them when you get up there. Not sure if the edge card works out to be marginally cheaper for 3 days. There's also the University option but it seems like they have very limited hours that they're open...

Google "cheap whistler tickets" and there's a website with all the math already worked out for you!

Thanks! I don't qualify for the edge card, and it looks like 7-eleven is the cheapest route, just wanted to make sure I wouldn't have to drive to a 7-eleven every morning to get a ticket.

Yeah I just walked into a 7-eleven in downtown Vancouver and asked for an adult whistler lift ticket, and the girl knew what was going on. Pretty seamless process. When they scan it first thing in the morning it registers for that day and then would be void any day after methinks.

Yeah! It was actually a pleasant surprise, because I'm used to mountains that keep me guessing, and Seymour and Cypress were kind of tame in that aspect. Still enjoyable boarding but I'm used to the technical stuff. Great thing was it was untouched! I guess most people hunting for that kind of terrain go higher, while i was only at mid-mountain at that point.

Fun stuff!
