Pretty thick smoke this morning on the shore. Probably give it a pass till it clears up a bit.

Whistler is good.

Just don’t come to ride the park. Some of the busiest lines I’ve seen.

Just got back from a quick lap of Bear, wasn’t able to even make out Sumas from the top. Really thick.

Was out picking up some beers at the local brewery this aft. Asked a guy who was just out riding how the smoke situation was... He said fine although 2 people in the group with asthma had to cut the ride short.

I did a quick XC ride on lower Seymour after work on Friday afternoon. Tried not to hammer too hard and felt fine, but Saturday morning my throat was feeling scratchy.  Will wait for it to clear up a bit more.

The smoke just hit us hard today.  Can definitely smell it.

It's like I can taste it this time around. That 3 summers ago smoke we had didn't seem as toxic. My wife has asthma and is def feeling it after being outside today. Brutal....

Did a light lunch ride up on bremar yesterday. First ride in almost a week. A good wind was blowing out of the west and didn't feel any effects. Although I kept the breathing mellow. Hope this blows out soon.

Keep an eye on this.
