Thanks for the comments, all!
Oh, and xj6response, I haven't yet tried the new trail up from the Blackcomb base to the Rendezvous. Since I ended up getting the season pass this year, while I have it, I'm going to try to take advantage of it and do a few of the Whistler/Blackcomb area peaks with the bonus of taking the chairlifts up. Maybe next year I'll try out the new trail!
I went up that new Blackcomb ascent trail last year in October, although it was incomplete and the chairlift was not running. Now, it's all done and you can hike up to Rendezvous, explore the alpine all day, then ride down, for $15.00. A nice way to power up a good hike but save your knees hiking down. Here's a link to my report:
