This season is off to a banner start in Whistler! Lot's snow coming in regularly and cold temps are allowing us to ski to the valley a lot of the time. Bottom line is it's sick! Enjoy the vid and pics from the last couple days:)

Don't blink or you might miss a wicked ski movie premiere this fall. There's tonnes of'em, especially if you're Whistler based like us. If you doze off and miss getting tickets, you'll just have to find some other way to fuel your stoke-o-meter before winter. Meanwhile those who do get tickets will be day-dreamin' of powdery radness for weeks to come...
Normal people enjoy four seasons of the year. Obsessive skiers travel the globe chasing only one. I, on the other hand, divide the year in two; the wait from Gaper Day until the TGR/Gaper Day Whistler Premieres, and the blurry white mess of winter that spans until the next Gaper Day. This year was no exception.
Good to see the Whistler boyz stepping it up for backcountry safety. Whistler based Prior Snowboard Manufactory Ltd just announced its affiliation and support of the Canadian Avalanche Association and the Canadian Avalanche Centre for the upcoming 2010/11 winter season. This partnership should help in the ongoing efforts to make the backcountry a safer place to ski and ride.» Read More »

Like Kraft Dinner, Sliced Bread, Facebook, and the Atomic Bomb, Gaper Day has finally exploded. Only, unlike those other 4 things, Gaper Day totally rules, doesn't make you fat, and hasn't killed anyone (that we know of).

An epic winter isn't complete without cat-skiing, is it? After weeks of awesome conditions in Whistler, the snow was finally getting harder to find in late March, and we momentarily didn't know what to do with ourselves. With months of pow behind us, we weren't about to settle for b-grade skiing, and knew there had to be freshies somewhere.» Read More »
