Epic snow for Dec camps

Camp is in full swing; our first batch of campers arrived early December eager and excited to enjoy all the early season powder that the snow Gods had delivered.
The Conditions have been absolutely amazing on the mountain with over 5 meters of snowfall so far this season. December saw over 338cm (133 in) of snow.



The Pro Ride campers and coaches got together last week for the annual Pro Ride Christmas dinner. There were mountains of food and lots of laughter shared amongst friends. Duncan hosted a Chinese auction; it’s kind of like secret Santa but with the option of picking and then stealing gifts.



The campers also went trampolineing at Bounce. Bounce has multiple trampolines, a foam pit and trampling snowboard. Everything the campers needed to practice their grabs spins and flips before putting them into action on snow.

Whistler Opens Thursday

Winter is here with Whistler Mountain officially opening a week early on November 19th 2015.  

With snow falling in the valley as we speak Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have been seeing storm after storm drop white fluffy snow on the peaks for the last 3 weeks.

“Since November 1, we have received 98cm (38.5in) of natural snow as measured at our Pig Alley weather station on Whistler Mountain and we have another 45cm (18in) to 75cm (29.5in) in the forecast at higher elevations over the next few days,” says Doug MacFarlane, Director of Mountain Operations at Whistler Blackcomb. “

Whistler expects to have five lifts running, including the Whistler Village Gondola, the Creekside Gondola, Emerald Express, Big Red Express and Franz’s Chair and Blackcomb Mountain will open as scheduled on Nov 26th 2015.  More snow is in the forecast for the next 2 weeks so wax your board and get ready.

Spotlight on Coach Tim Russell

Tim Russell is the definition of a gentle giant, he loves nothing more than hand planting and mucking around in the park with friends or slashing through the trees on a powder day. Tim is so stoked on snowboarding; he truly enjoys teaching people and watching the excitement in their face when they land a new trick.

Tim has been part of the Pro Ride family for over 6 years making his knowledge of both Whistler and Blackcomb mountain quite extensive (he knows all the secret spots to get the best powder).
We asked Tim to answer some questions so you can get to know him a little better.

Q. What’s your favorite go-to trick that always puts a smile on your face?
