    School me on Whistler weather

    Im looking at the forecast for Whistler and for certain days, it is forecasting 15 inches at the peak, 6 inches at mid-station and zero rain or snow fall at the base. Temperature at base is at 40 to 45F. Why is that?

    Pacific NW/AK/BC Big White (sell me on it)

    Hello everyone. I am trying to zero in on a location for my first journey this year and thought I’d get the sentiments on Big White. All things I see are pretty positive, the only thing I would wonder is if its going to get monotonous. I know its a big place but it seems from the few...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Northern Rockies Road Trip: Part 1, Utah and Jackson

    This is a recap of a successful roadtrip I made through the Northern Rockies with my wife and son over the span of about three weeks in March 2018. I used the Mountain Collective Pass (MCP) and covered 2,000 mi while resort-hopping from Salt Lake City to Calgary. We skied at eight excellent ski...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Calgary Area 2018/19

    Just a thread to organize discussion about skiing in areas accessed through the Calgary airport. I don't think we need strict geographic boundaries, but obviously Banff/Lake Louise fit as does Fernie and Caslte. Revelstoke and Marmot probably fit, but Whistler probably does not. Post...

    Pacific NW/AK/BC Revelstoke Christmas/New Years!

    I'm heading out to Revelstoke on Christmas Day (no family and sweet business class frequent flyer deals!) and staying through Jan 6th. Wondering if there are any locals to that area on here - as I'm solo it would be cool to meet up with someone for some backcountry just off the resort, or just...

    Pacific NW/AK/BC Whistler-Blackcomb areas to avoid on snowboards

    My daughter and I are planning a trip in 2019. I’ve been to Whistler a couple of times, but I’m a skier and haven’t really paid attention to where snowboarders are having trouble moving along. I’m trying to think of places to avoid where she could end up having to skate along on her snowboard...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Early Season Turns - Spray Valley, Alberta on October 6, 2018

    Winter seems to have come early to Alberta. After a week of white-knuckle commutes, I was bust some stress with some short powder laps this last Saturday. Apart from an open creek crossing, we were able to keep skis on from the highway to the top and back again. The snow in the alpine was...

    Northern Rockies/Alberta Must do runs at Sunshine/Louise

    So I'll be there for the next 4 days (2 days at each) with the fam and was looking for advice on must-do runs. We are all Level 5 skiers, but not looking to do any chutes or double blacks. Mostly bowls and glades. I know that's kind of vague, but hopefully it's enough to get a discussion going...
