Anyone up this past weekend? Was it super busy? Thinking of going again this coming weekend but it might be a zoo with the nice weather forecast. Saturdays seem to be busier than Sundays…

Secret is out, 100+ riders there last Saturday. Waits were long but the trails were amazing as usual. CGP is pretty much the only option if you want a decent jump line in the winter.

I wish they would open on days other than the weekend, especially during times like this. I bet the demand in Whistler would be high.

Yep, not a lot of us bike/ski bums get weekends off. But I don't know if we really count for much, Whistler to Sechelt is a pretty long expensive trip too.

Do they run longer hours in the summer? I'll go back then when Whistler is open and the pressure is off.

Yeah I think they are open 7 days/week in July and August.

Phenomenal trail conditions today. Dry but still tacky with berms carved of butter. Just the right number of riders- waiting for the trucks to come down is a welcome break.

Get up here!

this may be a silly question, but I am moving to BC in a few weeks (from Ontario), looking to get into more aggressive biking (DJ/DH), would a hardtail survive these trails? Maybe not the pro ones, but otherwise? I've got a pretty decked out DJ bike I'd like to possibly ride on these lines some time.

How good are you? If you're fucking awesome, you'll be fine. If you are average, your body will fucking hate you.

Go for it. The blue runs are mint.

I ride the park on a Transition Double, 80mm rear travel, 120mm fork, small block 8's, a full DJ set up. All the trails are a blast but most of my day is spent on the large jump trails as its just so fun on the slope bike. Some of the funniest riding Iv ever done. I would not feel out of place riding those jump trials on my DJ HT I would throw on a front brake on as the speeds are vary quick with the small tires. The trails are vary smooth I pick my Double over even my 160mm trail bike.

Awesome, thanks guys, I'm going to give it a go eventually. It will be a bit until I can afford to put together a slope style/FR oriented bike. My set up is an Octane one zircus, Marzocchi DJ1s, deity components, hydro rear brake, small block 8s. Will definitely consider getting myself a front brake before I hit this stuff up, I figured that would be the main concern.
P.S can't say I am amazing in any regard (remember moving from Ontario..no mountains lol) but I am trying to get to a point where I can say I am amazing/close to it and practice makes perfect.

Nice bike!

Are you only sticking to flow trails and never miss a tranny? If so, you're golden.

I'd curl into the fetal position and let myself die if I took that down some technical single track.
