Once spt starts building squaw valleys park there will be no reason to ride anywhere else in the US.
Long season, huge snowfall numbers, Northstar caliber park, Jackson caliber steeps, 4000 acres, California. Good night life but not blown up. Can you ask for anything else?
how about a non tourist trap that is infested by gapers, and rich families? how bout less crowds so the snow doesnt get tracked out in 30 mins or less? how about an entire upper mountain that doesnt close down at the slightest hint of wind?
how about some decent sidecountry access? how about they will still have the second best jumps in the basin, let alnone north shore, let alone 1 mile radius?
And those are all the negatives i can think up right now...
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
U crazy? Whistler is horrible, it barely snows, it is flat as hell, it has the worst park in Canada and there is nowhere to go touring or sledding within 100km. You should check out Sun Peaks instead, much better option.
