Entry Fee to be paid to Whistler Blackcomb

We do not recommend registering on race day because in the last couple of years all the places are filled up prior to the race. More details can be found here:

In addition, you must also register online with TYEE here, so we know how many Tyee coaches to bring to Whistler. The cost for Tyee coaches travel expenses for the 2 days is $40.
