Hopefully!. Keeping fingers crossed.

Darn been looking forward to Whistler mountain tomorrow but hard to resist the wind. Probably Ambleside for me - since it is closer to Squamish and parking is free.

Hey AJ, if the wind isn’t making it into Ambelside you could check out Erwin Park (a few km’s west of Lighthouse Park. I think it has better exposure to SW wind. Access is off Marine Dr just east of Stearman Beach (best to google directions if you don’t know it).
I may come down if it’s warm enough (like 7 or 8C)
Post an OSR if you’re anywhere on the N Shore.

OSR North Shore. Nada. Too light too late. Should have stayed at squamish spit where it was windy
