I mean, we've gotten used to Remy cranking out bangers like this and making it look effortless.

To me, the epic props go to Raphaël Boudreault-Simard for finally being able to capture just how crazy that is.  I honestly think that only he and Gabriel 'Gab707' Kocher have truly capture how crazy MTB can be (see Chute Show with Kurt Sorge).

Hello All,

Couple of questions, and I apologize if I missed the answers somewhere.

Is this a single trail in Squamish, or a collection of multiple trails?  Either way, can anyone direct me to what trails these might be?

What song is playing in the video?

Cheers,

It's a collection of different trails. Usually, when they're not (all) listed, it's because one or more are not intended to be found too easily. In those cases, the prevailing wisdom is your guide: when you're ready, those trails will find you. If you head up there, you'll find a few, and you'll find a few more when you meet the right people and they take you there.

Squamish and other areas are having problems with people showing up just to ride a single trail they saw in a vid (which is a fair reason to visit Squamish, let's be honest). Unfortunately, what's happening is some people are riding stuff that's way above their heads and it's leading to problems.

My recommendation to you if you want to go ride some sweet slabs, is head up there - some of them are quite easy to find with a little research or through a local shop (or our forum) and others will take a little more digging to uncover.

Most of these trails are very established and well ridden, and with one exception, are on Trailforks.

This clip showed up in my YouTube feed this week - I didn't see it here when it was first published. I've watched it several times now and I cannot get over how incredibly good it is. As a longtime rider, this is the first time in a while where I've thought that this format captures more effectively what it's like to ride. POV cams esp those with gimbals are impressive, sure, but you're view is constrained to where the camera is pointing. This is so much more dynamic, just like one's own vision when riding - your field of vision is so much wider than a camera on your chest can capture and convey. Bravo - an awesome effort.
