    Visiting 3/23-3/29 Whats open? Where to go? Info appreciated...

    Coming up from the bay area (San Jose, Ca) for an end of season snowboard trip... What is open? Trying to put together a list of activities so far on the list is a zip line tour, snow mobiling, snowboarding, heavy drinking, and I would like to throw in a little mountain biking... I am confortable on a bike have been riding for about 2 years I would say my skills are intermediate-advanced but the other two I will be with are complete novice... Any advice would be great... going to need a place to rent from and maybe if any places are doing tours worth recomending that would be great as well... Thanks in advance...

    You'll likely need to travel south as far as Squamish to find much in the way of snow-free trails to ride.

    Traveling isnt a problem as we will have a rental car... But a place that offers shuttles and tours would be ideal.

    Squamish is a pedal powered shuttle sort of riding environment, there are some real freeride trails but you need to get there on 2 wheels. Wednesday has a forecast gap in the rain, but all this week is otherwise a bit rainy.

    They were having some wet snow and rain in Whistler Village for the closing ceremonies of the Paralympics yesterday, so it's likely pretty slushy at the village level and still snowy above the village. The village is 660m elevation.
