                        NOTES; INCREASES SIZE OF OFFERING


VANCOUVER, OCTOBER 1, 2003 - Intrawest Corporation announced that it has agreed
to sell, on a private placement basis in the United States under Rule 144A of
the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the Securities Act) and in certain
Canadian provinces, $350 million aggregate principal amount of 7.5 per cent
senior notes due October 15, 2013 (the Notes). The Notes are being sold at par.
The size of the offering was increased from the previously announced $250
million aggregate principal amount. The closing of the offering is expected to
take place on or about October 9, 2003.

The company intends to use the proceeds from the sale of Notes to retire $200
million principal amount of its outstanding 9.75 per cent Senior Notes due
August 15, 2008 which are subject to a tender offer and consent solicitation
which commenced on September 29, 2003. The balance of the net proceeds will be
used to reduce bank and other indebtedness.

The Notes will not be and have not been registered under the Securities Act or
any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States
absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration
requirements under the Securities Act.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an
offer to buy any Notes or any other securities, nor will there be any sale of
the Notes or any other security in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or
sale would be unlawful.
