Spotlight on Coach Alan Gautier

For Pro Ride coach Alan Gautier, there's nothing like a Whistler powder day to get your stoke on.  Alan is one of the most amped riders in Whistler and loves to ride with the crew on what has been named "Friday Funday" camp sessions.  We asked Alan to answer some questions so you can get to know him a little better.  

Q.  If you could change one thing in snowboard design, what would it be?

I'd bring back the good old step-in bindings. Just kidding.

Q.  Describe your first day ever snowboarding?

I was almost 9, I had my skiboot on! I could link my turn half way down my first run, I was hooked!!!

Q.  Do you think snowboarding was well represented at the Olympics?

Not really. I think it's good for snowboarding to be there, but it doesn't represent what it is all about

Snowmaking on Whistler's Horstman Glacier

This coming winter season, Whistler Blackcomb will conduct a new snowmaking pilot project aimed at preserving the Horstman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain. The pilot project will involve the testing of four low-energy consumption snowmaking guns in the Horstman Hut area to determine if a full-scale snowmaking system is an option to prevent further recession of the Horstman Glacier.

“The goal of this project is to preserve the high quality product we currently offer in both the winter and summer months,” says Dave Brownlie, President and CEO at Whistler Blackcomb. “A snowmaking system on the Horstman Glacier could assist with preserving our summer glacier experience for guests to enjoy in the future, as well as improve the early season access to glacier skiing and snowboarding during the winter.”

GoSnow App Launched

A huge congrats to Camper Sean Bellerby who just launched an exciting new app for iOS called GoSnow.  

After many years of travelling and riding Sean realised that many people like himself ended up skiing or riding on their own so this exciting new app will help people all over the world connect and plan trips together.
