A beautiful picture of Whistler peak that clearly shows the vast mogul fields that cover the large glacier bowls on the top of Whistler mountain. Steep wide-open terrain to challenge the most confident skiiers and snowboarders that brave the descent.

Whistler Snowboarding Trip, originally uploaded by jsigharas.
The view from the top of Whistler peak is truely magical. With snow-capped mountains all around and often nothing but clouds below the view from the top makes for a heavenly picture. Perhaps that's why Blackcomb names one of it's upper lifts "7th Heaven"

It's hard to believe anyone can get much weather information from the Whistler Peak Weather Station as it appears to be frozen stiff in this shot. Apparently the whistler peak webcam is somewhere up in that frozen mess. Visibility?

How long until this becomes a new Olympic sport? Or at least a new popular trend just like snowboarding started out. This is a shot of Dan testing out a new hangboard design.
