Route 10: Wonder Why We Didn't Put the Kids in Ski School Route.

Exclusively travelled by those visiting the resort en famile, Route 10 is frequented by the foolishly thrifty, those who fail to plan ahead and those who still believe The Waltons was about a real family. You can see them all over both mountains pretending they're having fun and mustering every ounce of strength to keep from throttling their offspring. Trust me, you do not want to be on Route 10.

Route 11: Wonder Why It Looks So Easy in the Movies Route.

Generally, but not exclusively followed by males, age 16-27, Route 11 begins at the top of any exposed feature on the mountains and involves air time, a GoPro, a friend filming from a downslope angle and is often preceded by the phrase, "Are you watching?" Regardless of where it begins, Route 11 frequently ends at the Whistler Health Care Centre. The good news is, you can watch the parts you missed on YouTube.

There are maybe half a dozen other Wonder Routes I could share with you but this is both a start and probably enough to get me in hot water so if you want to find out what the others are, stop by Dusty's and I'll share more of the wonder of it all with you.
