I would say that you need to just go to Guest Services. They can dial you in.

we did it last year. good luck cause i doubt it will happen. the problem is they cannot allow people on foot in the park. you will have to be escorted by a bike patrol memeber which they aren't gonna let you do.
the way we got its the photographer i went with her husband was actually a ski patroler int he winter and they allowed him to come with us before the park even opened because we would not be allowed in th park by the time it opened.

best bet is to take stuff in a bag and just stop on the side of the trail and have someone as lookout so you dont get hit. if bike patrol sees you ont he trail on foot you get in deep shit

i know it sucks and it took us like 3 weeks to get an actual thing so we could get into the park.

just bag stuff in....

well barry works with whistler as a trail crew so.. maybe he can bag it oh well I guess we are gunna have to bag it :) meh hate doing things the bad way

no it has to be a ski/bike patrol person that accompanies you. thats just the rules.

i mean you dont need lights so i dont know what you are bagging around
we had lights and a bunch of other stuff so it was kinda hard to get around...plus we had a truck drive us all over the mtn so that helped

ahhh I see ok ok.. meh. lights for no shadows :) my friend runs a modeling agency and he is lending me his "pharem" lights he calls em they 7" by 7" self powered lights, we have em JUST incase.. but im bringing up 3 or 4 photo guys to help us out hopefully deneding on there work times... im sure they rather be shooting hot chicks then bikers that are men sweaty and dirty

this pic was snapped by annika broden at a still half sleepy yawning all the time 6:45am......


as you can see the light was directly behind the drop through the trees and we had to be up early for it. the first morning we missed it and then the second we were too early. we literally shot for 20 minutes and you can see the progression of the sunt hrough the trees til it finally got to the right spot and we got a good shot.
it was worth it.

now thats what im talking about, thats what we hope to get.. but we wont be allowed up that early so we gotta do it the stupid high tech way

yeah man....unless you can find some sherpas willing to lug crap round the mtn all day....which is seriously hard to do trust me. even with the truck it was a bitch to get to certain places. that stuff i heavy, you are then shit out of luck. just get a nice sunny day with a good photographer and a good camera and you should be set. make sure you make sure it aint too diusty or the shots come messed up but other than that yeah,.....have fun. be aware of people around you dont put yourslef in a place you cant be seen cause trust me it sucks. i would hate to hit a photographer

notice the pic...HT pride
