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.

NYE at Big White?

Play it safe. Just remember that the snow on the hill will be a lot better than the snow sold in the village... naw'mean? ;)

did new years at big white last year, total gong show. told the poor old guy renting his condo out that me and my buddies were a group of responsible young professionals... needless to say the damage deposit was not recovered.

Hey - anyone around 10-14th Feb that would be up for showing me and the missus around for a day? We'll be heading over from Nelson and could return the favour as we know WW pretty good.
1 beer per stash ;)
