Make a list—it’s the only way you’ll come close to doing half the things that Whistler/Blackcomb offers. Here’s an example to get you started: buy Fresh Tracks breakfast tickets for early access on pow days, ride the burn trees off Crystal Chair, send it in the Highest Level Park, straight-line Shale Slope, eat at Satchi Sushi, hang with pros at the back bar in Garf’s, tell your parents you’re dropping out of school and moving here.
