If you can swing it beginning September be better odds on weather than beginning June. Summer sometimes doesn't happen at all in June.
Invited couple southern buddies to ride Whistler for the first time once beginning of June. 10 degrees and raining. They showed up at the parking lot in shorts and T's. They were not amused with my full rain gear and winter gloves lol.
My problem is I have already planned a 1 week vacation in November and I don't want to use all my vacation days in the second half of the year. Now it's looking like I can go end of June until mid July. I'm from Switzerland, I'm also used to wet riding lol.
I may have talked another friend into coming with me, which means we could get a rental car and have more options. Without I would stay in the sea to sky area. Would still be good, I don't think I would get bored riding there.
How is the riding on Vancouver Island? I was hiking in Nanaimo once and some nice trails. For sure I want to ride the trails in Whistler outside of the park. I heard it's the no flow zone, that would suit my riding style.
