    Opinions wanted: Whistler opening week

    First, let me say to the locals that after a few trips, BC has captured my heart like no place I've ever been. So thanks for making it awesome. I'm planning a Whistler trip for this summer, but I can only come during the last week of May. Any thoughts on the value of going opening week? I know upper mountain will be closed. I come there pretty much for the jump trails (A-line, dirt merchant). (Don't hate, all we have is gnar/tech here in Phoenix!). Would you drive/fly 1600 miles to ride there that early in the season? Any thoughts are appreciated.

    It will be colder and wetter than July, August or September. June can still be a good time. It's just more of a gamble on the weather but shorter lines.

    Would I? That's a hard one. Normally I would say yes because I got a place in the Upper Village. We aren't going on our yearly February ski trip due to conditions so..
    I'm going to rob banks til I retire or get caught. Either way I'm set for life

    The snow pack is really low this year. Unless Whistler gets tons of snow over the next two months, mid-May bike park conditions will be more like usual mid-June conditions.
