Man, night life at hood is off the hook, 200+ skiers plus all the hot ass lifties all packed into a town the size of a shopping mall man night life is sick and easy to find. That and u can stay in your tent or truck anywhere pretty much. unless u buy a pass u can poach or buy lifts its not bad. whistler on the other hand is alot differnt. I am stayin at hood ALL SUMMA. and going too session 2 at rev, cya guys there. oh yah, and u cant say 'whistler is cheaper' what if u live out west like me???? shit thats alot of money just for the plane.
