I may make the trek up from Vic on Saturday to ride and watch Clawworx, at least if the trail conditions are bad I'll have something else to do.

Lower MMT is pretty steezy right now.. That trail needs some wall rides.

New roll/drop on lower Evil Eye, and some of the holes in the berms have been filled. Still pretty muddy all over though.

Being cheap is OK. Being a clueless sanctimonious condescending douchebag is just Vlad's MO.

Pot holes in berms, pot holes on transitions and pot holes with pot holes of their own. Business as normal for Mt Washington? As well what is wrong with having jumps that are table tops, all the jumps here seem to have large kickers not great for learning to jump compared to crank it up, Aline or lower freight train in whistler. Still beats peddling up but sketchy as hell.

Mt Washington ain't Whistler …

Hadn't ridden WBP in over a year. Did so yesterday there was perfect dirt conditions,
the trails were perfect, and almost no waiting in line. Well worth the extra $120 and two
hours to get there over MW.

conditions up there are unreal right now. the wet spots of a few weeks ago are now grippy hardpack and the dusty stuff isn't too dusty thanks to some recent moisture. still one of my favourite places to ride a bike anywhere.

actually i take it all back, don't go, at the end of the day the sun gets in your eyes. what a pain in the ass.

They're also open from noon to 6:30 for the next two weekends. Not being able to ride after work kinda sucks, but conditions are really awesome right now as Strahan said, so I'm glad they extended for a couple more weekends.

Unless your "not gonna do it" is riding up there this season. In which case I know better than to argue with you :D
