Had a little sprinkle of rain today. Trails are mint. I did pull a tick off my dog last night, in February. Crazy but awesome year so far!

wet dirt, dry roots right now, real good.

Gravatron is open??

Edit: Apparently you are right. http://bikeco.ca/trails/pemberton-trails That is crazy.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Check the update date on that page.
I wouldn't be suprised if it was though. Looks clear to the tower as you drive past one mile on your way into town, and its pretty much SE facing (i think)

Thanks for the reminder. Page is updated now - it didn't take long, pretty much everything is open up here. Best spring riding I've seen in years.

FYI: the page says it was last updated May 2014 which is confusing.

Has Pemby had any bad windstorms since end of last riding season? I was thinking of hitting Back Pains or Cloudbase….

between the mountain bikers and the trials riders most, not all, of the blowdown has been cleaned up on the standard trails. if you want to go ride gravitron or jtr report back. ;)

Rode Gravatron today, and it was clear! Had to hike the last 2km of road to the trailhead due to snow, and there were a couple of trees down on the trail that we couldn't clear… but otherwise no real snow on the trail, and clear all the way down.

Gravtron vs Gravatrout?

Planning on an epic climb in a couple of weeks. Which of the two would be a better ride down and is the level of difficulty that different? Thanks in advance.
