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!!!

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.

GoSnow App Launched

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

Sunny Park Laps for our Freestyle Campers

With the early arrival of Spring like conditions up on Whistler Blackcomb, our campers have switched up hiking steep lines to hiking the abundance of boxes rails and jumps that are on offer here in the freestyle terrain garden.

Right from the beginner to the advanced camp groups, everyone has been progressing so fast, which is no surprise given the motivation, determination and overall happy and supportive vibe of our crew. We’ve had campers landing their first ever box slides, hitting jumps and hips for the first time and landing clean 180 and 360 spins. Our advanced campers have also stepped it up adding some technical big spins on the jumps, whether they’re spinning backside, frontside or off the toes, to their ever growing bag of tricks.
