After two months of heavy rain down low, Whistler locals have been foaming at the mouth, anxiously waiting to be set free in the mountains. They were finally put to ease when Whistler opened a week ahead of schedule on November 19th. Blue skies, crisp air and a solid amount of coverage welcomed them. The terrain garden and Island hit were going off and for those who were willing to put in the effort a few powdery turns could be found. Craig McMorris, Robin Van Gyn, and Dom Vallee were among the throngs of riders in the mix.

All in all, it was a classic locals reunion complete endless slashes, side hits, and even a bit of pow. Such a solid start to Whistler's 50th anniversary season!
