Sorry Lee, but I'm not sure that poseur is the first word that comes to mind when talking about Ross' riding ability…
It is often difficult for sponsored riders to disclose locations because there is a lot of pressure on them to film and photograph in unique places, so you'll have to forgive Ross for not being candid about all of his riding locations.
However, I think Ross is correct and that Squamish, Whistler (once the snow's gone!), the Sunshine Coast, and even a few North Shore locations have some of this kind of riding. Also, if you're going to be riding around in the interior (and depending upon your budget), you might want to contact Johnny Smoke at www.bushpilotbiking.com as there are few people who know the BC interior trails as well as he does. And, yes, Lee can also take you on one of his many death marches :)
Also, something that might be worth while (depending upon how long you're going to be around the city of Vancouver for), might be hooking up with NS Ride (www.nsride.com): they lead rides several times a week of various abilities and at the least, this would be a good way to get a really good feel for the main trails on North Shore, and also potentially the Sunshine Coast, Squamish and Whistler.
Oh - one other quick edit: Lee mentioned Sooke in his list and I have to say that Harbourview Mountain is one of the coolest places that I've ridden in BC and easily worth a day or two of your time (especially, since you can head up island and hit the other locations that he mentioned). The view up top is stunning, and I was super impressed with the quality of the trail building and I've heard that it's only improved since I rode there last year. A brilliant technical climb leads to some great descents and the mandatory climb keeps the number of riders on the trails lower than shuttle trails. Additionally, The section where you ride 500m on an old water main suspended 6 feet in the air is very, very unique.
