Just got back from Whistler. No new snow until we left this morning, but it was still lots of fun. Temps were super cold so the snow held up and didn't get real icy until yesterday. finished a couple days with the Peak to Creek trail. Helluva leg burner but fun to be able to get almost 5k vertical in a single run. My last hours riding were pretty awesome started at the top of Glacier Express at Blackcomb down to Arthurs Choice and down to Excelerator Express. Over to Jersey Cream chair, crossover on the Peak 2 Peak gondola, hop on the Peak chair for one last run down to Creekside. It's pretty neat to look at the map and see that we went pretty much coast to coast on the resort.

I think the only thing that Creekside has going for it is Dustys and Garage parking. I didn't mind staying on that side, but I don't think I'll be doing it again. We ended up having to drive whenever we wanted to do something.

Here's a pic looking back up at Symphony chair. I'd never been in that area before, I'd really love to get back up there on a pow day. Lots of potential for epicness.
