My name is Phil Godley. This site covers my Winter 05/06 season in Whistler where I did loads of snowboarding and a few other things too. Here you will find my Whistler Diary, my Photo Galleries, and my Videos. During my six months I posted40 galleries and 423 photos online. The latest were taken on 26/04/2006. I also have 26 videos to watch, the last one was called Vegas - Musical Fountains and filmed on 31/03/2006. My home for the six months can be seen on the photo on the right here and my contact details were posted on my Contact Page. Lots of people left me messages on my guest book but this is now closed. The last person to do this was Neil G. If you wanna know if Whistler is gonna get snow - then this is the forecast.
