Jan 11, 2011 Whistler Blackcomb Pow day!
A short trip up to Whistler from Bellingham, WA is always a safe bet for deep snow and limitless terrain. With over 30cm fresh and more like 50 cm’s in the trees Whistler Mt. had strong winds and light dry snow blanketing its many acres. With the Alpine still shut receiving 40-60 km winds the visibility and place to be was Whistler’s lower treed terrain.
Riders: John Wells, Matt Beliveau, Will Hamburgler (Striped Jail suit), and Carl Wollschlager hit the tree stashes hard as the snow continued to dump giving Whistler some needed powder stoke. For a midweek Tuesday pow day the crowds were few and far between and the untracked lines were for the taking.
