      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

You can "camp" in the Singing Pass overnight parking area in Lot 4. As long as you're sleeping in your vehicle, I don't think anyone will bother you.

I used to van-camp in the Excaliber Base II parking lot. They want it cleared so they can plow at night, but if you will kindly get out of the bag and move over to an area they have just finished plowing when the plow is at your door, they don't seem to hassle you much. At least, they didn't used to.

 

Advantage: you can hop on the goldola for Blackcomb or ski to the Whistler gondola base. Besides, they have a guest shower available in the Base II lodge.

There's a few spots just off the highway on the road to Cheakamus Lake. Turn right at the first light (just after the welcome to Whistler sign at Function Junction). Should be pretty quiet.......
