North America's largest ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, has a whopping 8,171 acres to test how Armageddon-proof our BMF/3s are, particularly on our smooth floating Chedi's with TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™.
Here's how to tele in Whistler Blackcomb, plus where to eat, sleep, and après.
Between the recent Friends of CAIC Benefit Bash and this new snowfall finally kicking off the season, we are stoked to get back on our BMF/Rs and into the side- and backcountry. But... safety and education first!
Scott Schell first dabbled in backcountry skiing back in high school; now he's the program director of the Northwest Avalanche Center. He provided some insight into safe sidecountry skiing tactics.
Happy Thanks’Jibbing everyone! “What the hell is Thanks’Jibbing?”, you’re probably asking yourself. Simple. It’s what you should be doing during the early season because there are two ways you can spend Thanksgiving. The first is doing a bit of light jibbing around your local mountain or your backyard hill before eating an outrageous amount of food, and the other is sitting around with some fresh metal hardware holding your extremities together because you were trying to get rad in the backcountry when there’s nothing but dust on rocks. One of these Thanksgivings is fun and the other involves you rationalizing a growing companionship with pain pills. I’ve done both. Pick the former.
