Are there any more rumors about when Garbanzo is going to open? I am going to be up there the first week of July. Fingers crossed!

Plenty of rumours... I've heard this weekend, I've heard three more weeks, who knows. Still lots of snow, whenever it opens it will be limited due to snow and lift construction

I haven't been paying too much attention to trails closures, but does anyone know about Dirt Merchant? Still closed? What about A-Line? I'm going up to do SGC mid July, will it be open then?

You found out that Creekside was closed, but can't be bothered to check the official WB site to see what trails are open?

ALine is open, Dirt Merchant into Ripping Rutabaga is open (so probably have full Dirt Merchant open when you get here) anything else let me know up there most days. Enjoy the trip!

Heading there the week of July 18th. Having never been, should I buy my passes in advance or is that something you can do day of?

You get a discount if you buy in advance…

I paid for 3 lift tickets, 3 bike rentals and a kids day camp/lessons in advance, I sure hope it isn’t rainy that day…and we are all able to ride.

You can do that the day of. There’s ticket booths by the gondi.

If the ticket booths (windows) outside are lined up, try going inside to buy your tickets. Sometimes the line up is long outside , but there's nobody inside.

That's good about Dirt Merchant. I don't think I am ready for full Dirt Merchant yet, but maybe.

Still no ETA on Garbo opening? Too much snow still?

If you ask every day, it helps the snow melt
