Didn't have the camera with me so no photo evidence, apologies.
But man, is it ever good in Whistler right now!
it's been snowing all week, with more forecasted tomorrow and tues.
The alpine chairs aren't open, so my friends and I did a few short, easy hikes into the alpine (~20 minutes), and got some good 1000ft+ runs of thigh-deep fluffy powder.
Get up to Whistler before the alpine chairs open, and you'll have some incredible heli-style runs for very little effort!
