Season Wrap Up 2016

That's a wrap for another successful and fun season of snowboarding here in Whistler. This year's campers saw many, many powder days enabling the coaches and campers to ride lots of challenging and varied terrain.  Nothing seemed off limits with an abundance of trees to ride including the summer mountain bike trails.  These off the trail runs are a maze of twisting, winding and rolling tracks through much of Whistlers mid to lower mountain runs, a fun natural border cross course.

Whistler Blackcomb Renaissance

Whistler Blackcomb has a $345 million plan to make Whistler a "weather independent" resort with new year-round attractions for non-skiers.

The proposal includes a massive indoor waterpark, more biking, hiking trails and luxury accommodations on Blackcomb.  These enhancements are to be rolled out in three phases in on-mountain improvements, to “further solidify and enhance the company’s reputation as one of the world’s greatest four-season mountain resorts.

Phase 1  - Will include a $90- to $100-million investment in the watershed located at Blackcomb base 2 area.  The main attraction will be the indoor adventure center, dedicated to a water play area that will include slides, a surf zone, a kids' splash area and hot and cold pools. The building will also feature a family entertainment centre, food and beverage options, an eight-lane bowling alley and, in Phase 2, will incorporate WB's existing Day Lodge facilities.  The Blackcomb Adventure Park, will offer a range of year-round family activities, such as a mountain coaster, rope course, winter tubing and the introduction of night skiing.

Mt Baker Road Trip 2016

One of the big highlights of all 12 week Pro Ride courses is the Mt Baker Resort Road trip.   Why Mt Baker, this little local ski and snowboard resort located in Washington, USA?   It receives a huge annual snowfall and currently holds the world record for the most snowfall in a season of ~30 meters in 1998-99.   The ski area also host to the largest snowboard race in the world with 240 competitors in its annual Legendary Banked Slalom Race.
