    Just wondering if there are any local races around Whistler, just for fun sort of deals.
  12. Whistler Rando Races?

    Ok, thats small but something not afffiliated with a race series, just for fun, locals, no prizes, no hoopla, just some folks getting together for a little friendly competition.
  13. Whistler Rando Races?

    Yeah, I was kinda thinkin of some smaller local level events. But thanks anywhoo.
  14. Any good ice this weekend?

    the beauty of that climb is that its most probably not seen a 1st ascent. You can only see it from a new road thats just been pushed in. Lillooet area, Anyone?
  15. Any good ice this weekend?

    How about this? (taken on Wednesday)
  16. Lillooet ice conditions

    thin would be a safe descriptor, roads are 2wd but slippery, with the usual rockfall, suicidal ungulates and loaded logging trucks.
  17. Lillooet ice conditions

    climbs thru the bridge river canyon are forming slowly, temps around -10 in the morning and about -5 in the afternoon over the past 2 weeks. Any forays would be sporty I'm sure. Jade falls is formed from top to bottom on the left. sorry not much of a report, but things are shaping up
  18. Here it Comes

    According to some lillooet old timers whenever there has been a summer with lots of wasps the following winter is usually very cold, this summer was awful for wasps so heres hoping theres something to it.
  19. The Coming Ice Season

    Synchronicity looked dry as a popcorn fart today, not that its cold enough or anything, but usually its always seeping?
  20. The Gott Creek basin is regularly used by sledders from Lillooet, so it may be a bit noisy on the Gott side if they are in there when you go. There is a "private" cabin at the end of Blowdown that could be worth a look as well(GR 579766 ish).
  21. Lillooet Conditions ??

    went for a quick spin up the duffey to have a look. all the usual suspects are still hangin in there but are suffering to one degree or another. loose lady and the rambles are faring the best and still looked pretty good. it was interesting along the stretch of road between Carlsberg and the rambles in places where the road is relatively close in proximity and elevation to the river there were large chunks of ice nearly on the road and scattered through the bush. I guesse an ice jam let go. some reasonable temps fairly soon and it shouldnt take to long for things to get back in shape.
  22. Lillooet Conditions ??

    If one enjoys climbing an avy-prone gully in the rain then the future isnt quite so bleak at all!! you first
  23. Lillooet Conditions ??
