Whistler BC

I rode Whistler Blackcomb the 5th, 6th and 7th. It snowed a day before I got there so there was still powder to be found on areas that weren't open until the weekend. The 5th was overcast but I did find some good powder. The 6th was sunny and I lapped "Spanky's ladder" 4 times until they closed it because of wet slides. By the 7th it was warm and slushy. I was over riding so I took a few runs and went back to the hostel to nap and soak in a hot tub. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in Whistler, the UBC Whistler lodge is great. Internet, TV, foosball table, pool table, hot tub, sauna, and plenty of room. $30 a night ($25/night if you stay 3 or more). UBC Whistler Lodge

It was this guy's 71st Birthday! I hope I am still ripping when I am old!

About to drop in to Spanky's Ladder

Spring Pow on May 6th!

These are the bowls you choose between when you hike Spanky's Ladder. You have to take 2 lifts to get back to the same spot.. well worth it!


I didn't try the Kokanee Kabin because I was drinking Whistler Brewing Amber Ale. I just liked the logo.
