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.
