Thread: Summit 2005: Whistler

W/B is totally sick, huge mountains, huge vert, huge snow. Every type of terrain you can want. The village is compact and has shuttles so maggots who fly to Vancouver wouldn't have to rent a car. Drinking age is 19 instead of 21 (big plus for some maggots). Generally cheaper overall than JH, and will most likely have more reliable conditions in March than the Hole. Cat skiing operation nearby, as with a heli-ski outfit. Unlimitied backcountry options. W/B is a no brainer to me, as long as the date of the Summit are between the 9th and the 30th of March 2005.

I'm a big vote for w/b. My kinda backyard after a year in vancouver.
Probably couldn't afford JH.

I get 50% off lodging. It doesn't state that I have to just rent one place either. So we might be able to save alot of cash with my discount. I also have several condo owners on my tremblant site that owns condo's at Whistler. They might also toss in a free night or something because of the free add space they get.
I get to ski at 50% off.
I have a new website coming up there soon.
I get major discounts on catskiing and the Extremely Canadian gig.
Heh can't think of any.

- Will preclude maggots with a Deuce on their record from attending
Either way I will be in either Jackson or WB, so just plan it and let me know in advance

I concur, except I think earlier dates could work better for snow.

pro - i might spend the season there.
con - sometimes their grooming is a bit lackluster. don't you hate it when it snows 60cm's and they lay down that shitty 'roy thats all soft and get shralped in an hour?

Pro - 50% off on lift tickets with a Mammoth pass.
Also, when I skied there in April, many years ago it was like skiing in all 4 seasons due to the huge amount of vert. It could be dumping winter snow on top, bluebird sunshine in the middle, corn near the bottom, and a puddle to ski around (or over) next to the lift.
