Whistler Opening Day Report & Video

Its Official, Whistler is now open for the 2013-14 winter season.

Excitement has been in the air the last week with rumours that Whistler would be opening, and on Saturday Nov 16th the mountain opened its slopes an astonishing thirteen days before the official November 28th opening date. Eager skiers and snowboarders set up camp at both the Whistler Village and the Creekside Gondolas to try their luck at catching the first ride to the top. With others joining the queue throughout the early hours of the morning, people stood in line with high spirits, sharing opening day stories and celebratory drinks. One keen bunch of riders went as far as setting up camp in the middle of the line cooking pancakes, bacon and eggs to get ready for their first day.

First Whistler Alpine Snowfall

ISENSEVEN "A way we go" trailer 2013

66997961

"A Way We Go". That's the name of the game. This year's film documents the season of Alex Tank, DBK, Stephan Maurer, Wojtek Pawlusiak and Ludde Lejkner, on their journey through the world and their home countries in search of the best snow, the best spots and most of all: The best times! They are joined by the usual suspects Marco Smolla, Fips and Tobi Strauss and there are a bunch of cameo appearances by many other homies, new and old.
This film will give you more insight on what goes on during our trips to far away places and there will still be more snowboard action than you can shake a stick at.
