In the early days of Whistler we did a lot of exploring of the mountain outside the boundaries. One of our regular trips involved a 45 minute hike up Little Whistler then over to the South side. From there we could ski a total of almost 5000 vertical feet of powder to the valley. The names given to the runs are based on current Ski Patrol available through: ullrmaps [photo]1968WestBowl01.jpg[caption]1968 West Bowl 01 (South Side bowl)[/photo] First good earned turns down South Side.
