Just came back from it. For what we've gotten so far this year, it wasn't that bad.

Prepping for my trip to revelstoke in feb

Anyone have a recommendation for a snowboard tune up place? Planing for a full package sort of thing as I want it to be killer on my trip.

All i see on CL are these
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/va...306211479.html
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/rd...297620191.html
http://vancouver.en.craigslist.ca/pm...294083678.html

Might the VST or Ladner, but rather go to a place someone can vouch for.

It looks like it'll be dry till Saturday. Then we have a big system coming in. I hope the freezing level stays low, because it's going to be fricking EPIC if it does!

Going to Seymour tomorrow to teach some friends how to ski.
Will report.

edit: not too shabby.
A little icey, but nothing to complain about - especially for the green runs. Blues are ok. Didn't try black.

Last year whistler has 50% off on family day and it wasn't busy. I don't think it wit willl be like that this year. I'm up at big white right now and a lot of the residences in big white are occupied for this weekend. I'm back in town tommorow so I may give whistler or one of the local mountains a try since its suppose to dump snow.

Update for bigwhite:
I would classify it as packed powder. Its not icy but its still an enjoyable time. If anyone wants an update in the morning let me know and I'll post one, otherwise I'm on my way back to the gvrd in the afternoon

I've been to the 24/7 grouse during the Olympics and swore to never go again. I can't justify paying to wait in a lift line for 10 minutes to ride on that mountain.

I haven't been back since the first one so I was wondering if its better or worse then the first time I went at 2 am expecting no lines.

Its more fun to just go up and hang out/have a few beers. We took up some flasks and rode park during sunrise a few years ago. It was when I had a seasons pass there though when I first moved to Vancouver. Since the olympics isn't, um, in vancouver this time, you probably won't be dealing with the same lineups. Van was kinda busier then.

Snow all day Tuesday at cypress, so Wednesday should be good. Aiming to head up around 1/130. Riding solo unless some of you guys are down too.



BTW I just need ID to pick up gold medal catch right?

Reading cypress site right now isn't calling for snow. This is monday and tuesday's forecast
http://www.yr.no/place/Canada/Britis...5/forecast.pdf

drivers license for gold medal card, I don't think they need confirmation email but maybe have it handy on phone just incase. ?
