I just found out that I got a job working on the Sea to Sky for Engineering work experience. They're providing an appartment in North Vancouver for myself and the other 2 students. Obviously I'm going to spend most of my free time skiing while I can. Hopefuly I'll be able to head up to whistler every weekend. During the week, I would also like to get some night skiing in. I know Vancouver has 3 hills surrounding it. Which one is best/closest to north van? Also, how long does the drive to whistler usually take? Also if any of you want to meet up for a day or something to ski, it'd be nice to ski with a local so I'm not completely lost.
Also, since I will be skiing Whistler, I figued its time to get a pair of proper pow skis, so I'm considering the following:
188 Armada JPJs
189 K2 Seths
Line EP Pro
your opinions on what would work for whistler would be much appreciated. I am 6'1, 165, and I can ski pow, I just don't get to do it very often.
