Participant Information

This is the second to last weekend Whistler lifts will be available this year! (Blackcomb to remain open till May 30th in theory). Final destination will depend on group and conditions. Access via Whistler Village Gondola and then Symphony Chair to Musical Bumps. Ski out via bottom of Symphony to Village. If you don't have a lift pass, needs to be purchased from Guest Relations (about $56) and they will want to see beacon, shovel, probe, skins. I'd like to do N.W. face of Fissile but with warm conditions may not be suitable.

 NOTE: you should be comfortable skiing steep slopes.
