Awesome to hear Brian moved on of his own accord and the park seems to be in good hands with the new dude... and very stoked 1199 is still a thing moving forward. The day the announce the first WCDH I will be booking a Creekside condo for a week with my riding buddies.

now that's a good idea, and really don't get why Whistler isn't already a stop for WC dh

I'm hoping for more natural trails and less "bike park" trails...

What is a "natural trail"?

A trail like "Delayed Fuse"....  cheaper and easier to build natural trails than Flow trails.

It would be neat if they gave Digger the reigns on a couple of natural trails eh. The trails he built that year Cypress opened to mtb were such a blast.

There is at least one new hand built singletrack trail (which is what we all seem to want) coming to Creekside this season and it looks stupid fun (starts at 3:03):

I agree more of this would be awesome. I get why they built multiple blue square flow trails to start, but the bottom of Earth Circus is pretty meh.. Insomnia is fun when the steep berms are not trashed.

Just a reminder we're almost there.

Hoping to conquer a few sections this season; The vee-ed rock on In Deep. First camelback on Lower Joyride. (The second one freaks me out just looking at it.) Anyone else have any sections that they'd like to clear?

I'd like to clean the straight down braids on Goats Gully and finally had the guts to hit all of Crabapple. But my collarbone might hold me back this year.

If you are anything like me, you will case #4 on your first go because it's hard to believe how fast you can go without landing to flat.

If you case #4 you will not only test the strength of your spindles, your cranks and your wheels but you will also test how well everything is put together in your body.

I want to spend my days in Garbo tech without busting myself up. Last year my goal was to clean Goats and InDeep consistently. Was able to do that but not on the worst lines. I still take the chute on InDeep- I don’t think I’ll ever try the big roll - consequences of failure are too high and I have a family to support!!! Goats - totally fine after I figured the lines out. I’d like to figure that weird section on Duffman out. I still don’t quite 

I like to keep my wheels on the ground (or close to it) so ALine is as big a jump tail as I’m interested in doing.
