Haha, how demoralizing! I road it north to south.

I think riding Burke and the shore with FSR access has made me soft. It's a shame too, because the sections north of the powerline are great!

pushed up high society last night. its clear a long way up. Almost dry in spots. looped over to danimal south and THC etc all good to go. Stuff is really free-ing up quick. I imagine big timber wouldnt be too far away either.

Riverside and Farside to the suspension bridge are good to go.
The road up to Loggers Lake is clear.
The snow starts just past Loggers Lake on the way up to Ridge Trail.
Ridge Trail itself is clear.

I also heard that Tunnel Vision was ride-able but have no third party confirmation of that info.
I know that there is snow on the road from the Highline Trail from the Function access end (not sure about the Highline Trail as I went up the road directly from the Interpretive Forest parking lot).

Fuck I love the bike park. And Whistler.

Weird conditions.. some really sloppy bits, but also some late July uber dusty berms.

Hardly any brake bumps anywhere right now.. riding fantastic.

Not to mention hardly any lines at all today. I imagine tomorrow will be a complete shit show.

How were the line-ups today? Pretty long or reasonable? Anyone? Debating whether to ride Sunday or Monday.

Totally reasonable today. I think that was due to the fatality on the sea to sky.

Great day today, I just hope the weather holds up for tomorrow too. Trail conditions vary but overall very good.
