Am I remembering wrong or did Tippie make a video where he measured a bunch of Whistler's iconic features to show the sizes of the jumps etc.

Cheapest way to get from Vancouver airport to Whistler? Anyone? Much appreciated!
Pop a ride would be the cheapest if anyone is doing the same trip.

Epic rides! You have to take a Skytrain to Burrard station but makes the ride like $35 in total.

Thank you bud!! Just looked it up, that is way cheaper then the other option!!! Big Grin

Delayed Fuse has had beautiful touchups and also reloamed. Wonderful. Garbo Chair broke down towards end of day so check on that. However Creekside zone alone has enough for a whole day and with adding Elixir that's even more so. I believe Midgard/MissFire are delayed in opening

I would say that the Fitz Zone has a noticeable degree of weekender (citiot??) brotardness. Examples; someone riding the tails of a group of slower older riders on Heart of Darkness. Someone else telling a slower rider who stopped off to the side of the trail (well clear of the trail I might add) on Dirt Merchant/Rutabaga "You don't belong here. You shouldn't be here". Slower rider actually pulled over to let the faster group pass. It's the usual story every season I suppose

That was a terrible Garbo opening day. So many trail closures. Then to top it off the chair broke down around 12 pm. I parked at Creekside and had to pedal my DH rig from the village to creekside. The staff's only response when I asked how am I supposed to get to my truck from the village, "sorry nothing we can do."

Where in the park can you get water to drink?

Is there water fountains at each lift point?

I'm trying to avoid wearing a bag/camelbak...

Thanks

Water fountain at bottom of Fitz chair in the line up, at the ski school building by start of A Line/GMC pump track, in bathroom of Whistler Village Gondola mid station, at top of Creekside/bottom Red chair and of course in Roundhouse at top of Village Gondola. Only place you really miss it is top of Garbo on hot August days, gotta remember to take a gulp at the ski school one before uploading on those days. Def no need to carry water in the park.
