Whistler 2018-2019 season

見師兄弟們話冇 post,就開 post 講自己的雪季吧。

威士拿十一月尾開季,不過唔夠雪,一直要到聖誕新年,一場大雪,7日内落咗 >150cm,雪況立即返來。
今季開季我都滑得相對地比較少,so far 自己滑咗 7日威士拿,加1日同姪仔在 Grouse mountain 玩。上季大概有 40日on snow,今季可能追唔到亦希望唔會太少!

師兄弟們,今季去咗邊到玩?有人來加拿大玩嗎?

I have lost count.... probably 20 days so far. We have had pretty good snow. Last Sunday we had the perfect cold smoke pow day with low temp and low humidity floating snow. I really messed up one of my skis (core shot required) going over rocks to get to this... but so worth it! Being on the ski team and knowing ski patrol helps. He told me to hike here and I was the first one! I still giggle uncontrollably when I find untracked to myself.

Our mountain had been really supportive of the race team this year and gave us some great slopes that previously this did not groom. They also give us lots of early load days which give us the whole mountain from 7am-9am for high speed runs before they open to the public. This picture was taken at around 7:30am when we are setting up the gates. It’s a big operation and everybody was super cold. But also tons of fun and to me this commadrade is what ski team is all about. This steepest part of this pitch was probably over 45 degrees. Freaking scary.

My son did his first race this weekend. Awesome first run and placed 6 out of 60. Then screwed up his second run. Typical ski race day lol.

嘩! 45度,還要高速滑行,真係crazy。有時見到啲人响expert 高速滑落去,不用半分鐘已經到底了,真係希望做到佢地一半的技術已經很好

Actually I made a mistake, it’s 45% slope not degrees. 45% slope Is around 24 degrees.

24 degrees is more reasonable

剛去了龍平,新年會再去龍平,但會帶小朋友去,之後3月中去苗場。全季都只係滑到10日:lDD_010:或有10日可以滑:lDD_001: ,同你地住北方的真係唔可以比較

allwhite 2019-1-15 05:41 PM

我到依家成季都祗係係Niseko滑咗四日咋,不過下禮拜尾會去東西岸加埋滑多7日,最後3月中再滑4日,全個season滑盡嘅話就15日,得B2L2師兄上季嘅三份一 :(.

BTW Galun 師兄, may I ask if you have ever skied at Homewood, Diamond Peak & Sugar Bowl? May I have your verdict? How are they comparing to Squaw and Alpine Meadows? Many thanks:) !

Never been to homewood or diamond peak.  They are considered more as locals mountain with cheaper ticket prices and less terrain.  It depends on your skill level.  If you are skiing blues and blacks, I would go elsewhere.

I have been to sugar bowl many times, usually for my kids’ races so never really explored the entire mountain.  But the mountain that I skied was great and lots of fun.  They have a lot of very steep chutes which I really like.  Better than squaw actually.  Squaw is more varied difficult terrain - rocks, trees, that kind of stuff.  Sugar bowl has lots of lift accessible steep terrain.  If you like that, I’d do sugar bowl over Squaq.  Forget alpine meadows, I personally find it very boring.  I was there last week for a race and it just confirmed my memory of how boring it was.

Thank you very much Galun. I last went to Alphine Meadows about 25 years ago and 已經完全冇曬印象 but I will take your advice and forget it:smile_35:. Trial map for Sugar Bowl looks interesting too and will go for a day. 另外因為住得近Squaw老婆唔想去咁遠,所以有兩日weekdays應該會去Squaw (slightly cheaper on weekdays but still ridiculously expensive). 最後可能去多一日試下Homewood. Probably less crowded over the weekend and not too far from our hotel. I Youtube HW last night and they do have a few double blacks and ungroomed terrains. Should be enough for a day I hope. 同老婆一齊自己玩嘅時間可能加埋都係得一個鐘咁上下,同埋太難我都未必應付得到:lol.


再一次感謝Galun師兄:)!

I wish I can come and ski at Whistler one day!

B2L2 2019-1-29 03:40 AM

Some bump skiing last weekend, and I could see my lack of mobility for better bump absorption.  Agreed by our instructor friend as well.  Working on that now.  Always good to have friend taking video.
