Whistler Blackcomb opened this weekend two weeks ahead of schedule, which provided the usual pilgrimage of old and new shred all converging with the anticipation of another great year ahead. Whistler and Billabong OG Rube Goldberg was there with friends to get stoked, and enjoy the first of many pow slashes and àpres pints!
