You're probably good a lot of that south facing stuff looks clear. Didn't go that way but tons of people riding Thursday.

Lost an end cap for a chromag grip on nimby-let it go, maybe higher. Let me know if you come across it.

Most of the creeks are dry up to the top. So if you are riding with your pooch, make sure you have enough water for the both of ya's

Trails dry, scary and awesome.

Has anyone been up lately?  Rudy's must be under a bit of snow from last weekend, right?

Thanks for that!  Conditions are so mint.  Pemberton in the fall...does it get any better?

Hoping to ride Pemberton for the first time in the near future - what are the top trails to hit? Looking at the map I was thinking of doing Happy Trail > Nimby > Middle Earth > Rudy's > Overnight Sensation> Psychopath. Although that looks like a pretty big climb! Cream Puff also seems to be a popular trail. Any recommendations?

Also, how intense is the road for shuttling? Do you need a proper truck or can you do it with an AWD crossover?

Those are all awesome trails. I saw a mom and 2 cubs on cream puff on friday. Right in a spicy spot too, so heads up.

Yes would be a fairly big climb but not impossible. Cream puff has some really neat rock features. Could do happy/nimby/overnight sensation then make your way to cream puff for a good intro.

Thanks - yeah if I did Cream Puff I would have to skip Rudy's - I'm not in the best shape unfortunately. 

Are any of the other areas (Fat Tug, One Mile) worth checking out?

Both Fat Tug and One Mile are worth checking out. One mile has a lot of good riding all cinched in there.
