is that the kid with goldstone written on his back or something along those lines?
I see him up there with his old man all the time. sent the glc drop and i saw them scoping aline drop the other day. i think the only reason i beat him in the CIU phat wednesday was because he crashed haha.

Sooo stoked to be coming up this weekend. I bet Garbo is pretty dry with this hot spell?

Blue Velvet kinda dry. Original Sin has snow banks on either side until the trails merge, then it is just muddy and wet until entrance to In Deep/ Cpt. Safety intersection.

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

Definitely still muddy on garby singletrack, but totally fine (except for one or two lakes).

Is it just me, or are fewer people riding Whistler this year?

Was thinking the same thing today. Very quiet for a weekend at WBP. Nice to do a run and not see anyone else but low attendance doesn't help keep the power on for the chairlifts…..

it was mega hot, people were probably hanging out by the lakes….that and Wednesday night was probably one of the busiest weekday nights I've ever seen in the park, 270 phat wed racers, a full women's wednesday, the line was out of the corral at one point.
