I played paintball for my first time while on vacation in Canada 2 years ago. This place got me interested in paintball, but I just didn't have the time to go any place locally. Since I was going back to Whistler for the 2nd time this year, that's when I decided to bring my own gun and had a blast.
Can't bring your own paint, and they are currently charging (as of June 2003) $12 Canadian for 100 rounds of paint. Can get really pricey if you waste a lot of paint.
Rental guns are either pump or Sheridan XTS. Inaccurate like a mother, the owner chose to go with Sheridans because of their ease of cleaning and maintaining.
REALLY steep hill you have to climb up to, to get to the course.
Only open during the Spring, Summer, and early Fall. Not a huge window for playing time, but it is much better than getting shot with frozen paintballs and only being able to play 5 min sessions (the owner told us that they tried to get winter paintball going early on).
Sheridans are very well taken care of. With some sessions having 40+ people participating, not a single ball was chopped.
Owner is a great guy. He's helpful, and if you get to know him pretty well, he may let you use a much better marker as a rental over the Sheridans.
Great course. There's 2 fields set up, both are rather large. For small to moderate number of people participating in a session, he will open up the "King of the Hill" field, which is quite fun.
For $37 Canadian, you get a semi-auto rental, mask, overalls, C02 refills, and 100 paintballs. If you have your own marker, you pay $15 Canadian, and you still get a mask, overalls, C02 refills, and 100 paintballs.
Of the times I've played there (my 2nd time up in Whistler, we played for 3 days), most of the people that have played are quite curteous and honest when you hit them.
Designated kill zones. Arm shots (up to the seems on your shoulder), below the hip, and marker shots are NOT kill shots. Only head and body shots. Some people like this, other people don't. I, personally, prefer kill zones.
I love this place! If and when I return to Whistler, I intend to play there again! If you plan on going up to Whistler any time soon, I highly recommend you going there. I gave Whistler Paintball Adventures a 9, because of the expensive prices for the paint.
