Saw the green sign after I agreed to tow a friend into cra-bapple.  Came back up and the sign was red.  FML.

Hope it's open first thing tomo.

A-Line has been a 100cm powder day since the last rains.

New rutebega line is sweet, looking forward to the big side of dirt merchant some day!

I predict some of the biggest lines of the year tomorrow, been wet every other weekend for like a month. So I might just hike crabapple, if I get off work in time for some laps!

I totally forgot.  So, three fuckers managed to roll down in front of me right at the Crab Turns/Aline corner before the rollers/tombstone.

They came in with a bit of speed.  There is no trail there.. no?!?

First time I've ever seen that.

(BTW, they sucked and I rode their fucking asses)

They probably came from the road that fade to black jumps over.

if you come from after Atlantis, speed is an issue. there's a sort of drop in you can walk up that puts you back at trail speed. vision of the trail above is good and there's literally no reason to snake anyone. sounds like run of the mill bike park people though.

Did a couple laps on Friday and yeah wow A-Line is stupid good right now. Felt fine on my trail bike although I definitely prefer the stability and feel of jumping on a DH bike. Today must have been busy, Friday had decent lines, even Garbo had a good # of people waiting in the afternoon at one point.

Yeah nah. They came from somewhere that doesn't exist...

Coast was at Crabs today, combined with the busiest lines ever (maybe Sontagg will say open Creekside on weekends) meant I just played there today. Dirty was red the early laps. Did it open today?

Dirt Merchant was open all day. Lines were shit all day as well. Both in Garbo and the Fitz. Mostly a jump day with a good last hurrah on everyone’s favorite gnarly trail in whistler.

I feared as much. But I hate those lines more, so it is what it is.

It was a nice little oasis at crabs. Combined with people watching it was a fun time.

A proline A-Line would be the bee's knees.

Preview of a new trail connecting Garbo to Creekside, guessing it drops below Express Way toward the top? Something to look forward to next year.

Here's one from Danny Hart's last couple weeks... some of it is horribly shaky but it's amazing to see how fast him and Forbes hit some lines.

I brought out the gimbal yesterday morning because I wanted some footy to keep me sane during the winter. This is one of the funnest laps in the park.

I also love AP but in August when it’s 6inches Deep in dust, not so much. It’s been amazing lately!

I Laughed out loud when you blew past the guys lining up for ALine at full blast! Looked like a wicked run to me.

Hart is so fast, it's hard to fathom.

I'm glad they smoothed out Schleyer. There were some bomb holes still left over from last season.
