    I'm thinking of doing a last minute trip up to Whistler to get some riding in before this season is over. Anyone going to be around? Is it going to be worth while this late in the season with the weather being the way it is? Also would anybody recomend Evolution for rentals?

    i got back today. sat was raining (garbanzo was closed), and it snowed to almost the village sat night, so should be sloppy. as of 11am today, the chair wasn't running (still raining in the village, not sure what was happening up top. definitely cold & nasty); not sure if it was just a temporary closure; trails would have been a mess.

    i was up today, all the doubles were closed, anything with woodwork. a line was covered in snow, but it was still fun to rip down. I'm also trying to get up for closing weekend.

    So would you say it's still worth while going up there? I'm going for free so that's not an issue, but I'm just wondering if the conditions are gonna get worse. Maybe I'll see you there...
