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…..

All the transient brobrahs were too knackered to shred

Why slag free swag?:rolleyes:

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

Good to know… I was disappointed this weekend when I went to check out BV for the first time and there was a rope across the entrance! Didn't know it was accessable from In Deep. Will have to check it out next time.

I felt the same way after trekking up there with a buddy who couldn't stop talking about how awesome the trail is.

Whoooooooooooooweeeeeeee!! Gittin' dry and dusty!! (everything below Garbi)

Garbi's where it's at for me - least there's still some tack in the dirt. Nice to feel some snow spray up from the front bun too :scream:

Garby only has a few puddles left in some single track. Everything else is now dry/dusty.

And fucking hot.

Blue Velvet is pretty rough and bumpy in certain sections! Would be nice to see the trail crew smooth it out.

On the other hand, rode black velvet for the first time yesturday and it was in great shape! Probably the smoothest trail i rode all day

Not sure, I've always referred to it as Garbi or Garby (whatever the spelling would be, but GAR-BEEE being the end result) as have my riding buddies.

You can't tell me this is a serious point of contention, is it?

:fruit:
