Gonna be up this weekend and would like to not be a cabin hermit all weekend. What's generally acceptable to ride in the wet?

Was about to write the same 3. Also golden boner (the three blackcomb trails up higher are not for the wet), anything old and rocky; yummy/foreplay, kill me thrill me, lost lake. And bike park!!

yes to all of the above, stay away from steep fall line trails in the valley, the more xc stuff is usually fine though, lost lake and the interpretive forest trails are usually all good, business time, tunnel vision, big timber…

Where is the snow line at after today?? Thinking about checking out Billy Epic tomorrow if there isn't too much snow up there (~1000m elevation).

Sun came out for a nice little Microwave tower ride. Not many of these left in the season!

Rode Billy Epic, Cut Yer Bars, River Runs Through It. All pretty dry, a bit wet higher up from the snow melt. Tomorrow should be another good riding day!
