Looks like Into the Mystic/LOTS are open and RMOW has revealed the new Rush Hour and Last Call descent trails to/from On the Rocks. Looks like some sweet new additions, hope to get up and check em out this summer:
Is Pot of Gold another trail that Howler is working on? Description below, also great to see prominent NO E-BIKE messaging. Hope there's enforcement somehow:
Under Construction. Do Not Enter. RMOW constructed trail connecting With A Twist To the Ninja Lakes Loop through Rainbow Lake and Hanging Lake pass.
UNDER CONSTRUCTION. NO E-BIKES, NO DOGS IN THE ALPINE.
Im debating creating an Ebike name and shame photo group on FB. There's a significant portion of older whistler locals (owners and employees of big shops) that i have seen riding e-bikes, and sneakily trying to sneak away when seen or deliberately try to block view of their bike.
Hahah sneaking away or blocking view of bike, that is so lame. If the official word now is they are allowed on valley trails besides Sproatt alpine, then owners should sack up and be fine riding them, just shows they feel shame hiding them. No excuse for riding where they are banned, especially locals who should know better? There was a report that the Devinci Western Canada rep and a bunch of industry dorks were riding ebikes to LOTS during Crankworx last summer and were dicks when confronted. I also read on Pinkbike this same asshole (not sure name, need to find out to complain to Devinci HQ about it), had an ebike demo in Cumberland even though UROC/Cumberland Community Forest (PRIVATE land) prohibits their use. Again when confronted he said he doesn't give a shit. Pricks like that need to be name and shamed.
If I get up this weekend and see any ebikes I'll be taking pics and having a friendly chat as to why the rules don't apply to them.
