    Creekside will rise again
    3 chairs is all we require, we may need to man the Goat path with vigour

    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    Lol.
    Of course.
    Middle of the ski day.


    Note to self—be on cell service peaks Wednesday afternoons.

    Get off chairs, get out of lift line, get in virtual lift line.

    B.C., provincial health officials last week reiterated their recommendation against non-essential travel, recommending skiers to stick to their local mountain. Pique Magazine followed up with provincial health to get clarity on whether Lower Mainland skiers can travel to the resort, and got back a canned statement that did not definitively say one way or the other.

    “I think because the way it was announced as a travel recommendation or guidance, I bet we will see some folks from the Lower Mainland,” said Whistler Blackcomb C.O.O. Geoff Buchheister.

    “My request of those people is when they step up to Whistler Blackcomb that they recognize we’re at a critical time with the pandemic. As we open, we’re embracing a new set of policies and procedures and we’re asking our guests to employ the layers of protection, specifically, face coverings and distancing.”

    Because lift staff won’t necessarily know where guests are travelling from, Buchheister said it is important they use common sense when visiting the mountain.

    Nope, but it's almost certain that the village lift line is going to reach all the way to Olympic Plaza.

    Green Chair line will reach all the way back to Green Acres.

    Red line will hit the Women's DH tunnel.

    The Cypress line today was real.
    25 minutes per lineup.
    Wednesday morning.
    It will be better when Grouse and Seymour opens (and WB of course too).
    In search of diversion, many crew Members defy the quarantine restrictions and pick up pets from the various habitable worlds they explore (Sure Thing, Isaac Asimov). Quando omni flunkus, moritati (always recite before the Possum Lodge Word Game).

    The only hope we have is that the reservation cap limits the numbers to avoid an upload gong show each morning. And what happens to singles trying to upload on a Gondi? They get one to themselves guess. I only rode the bc Gondi this summer and that was case but it wasn’t busy so no big deal.

    Start skinning up around midnight tonight. You'll have the mountain to yourself until about 10 am tomorrow.

    What about uphill skinning from base2 to excel or mid station? Might be faster than waiting to upload.

    I *think* that there's infrastructure being laid down. Pipes and snowmaking etc. Not sure. I'll check and post if I get an answer

    from one washed up injured Blackcomb Patroller (sitting in Mexico ) to all of you lot: Have an awesome opening day! Have a safe season.

    Getting lots of reports from the crew: still very Sharkey, but good turns are out there.

    Last season was the first year since I was 2 years old that I didn't get an entire day on skis... Hopefully this year is different. Please keep a distance, wear a mask and wash your hands!

    YEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW
