Just trying to find some people to shred with. Be cool if we could get a nice sized group up there.

Use your rockboard. After christmas is usually when it starts getting good. And starts getting excellent once Gem Lake opens up. That said they're really good about marking exposed rocks and even have lifties standing guard for rocks before all the lifts open. But really it depends on the year.

Raakels is always a party. Big White usually puts on a thing in the Happy Valley lodge. But for the most non family thing walk around snow pines estates and look for a house party, there is usually a few going off. And from my experience people are usually chill with strangers showing up, just dont cause any shit.
