I miss it...

There are many jobs for skilled carpentry, foundation, framing and a LOT of finishing contracts (providing you have the experience and good quality tools to do the job).

I'm speaking from experience in the last 2 years.

The growth is nice. Should be sustainable at least until a few years after the Olympics has past.

Almost every single city where the Olympics has been held, the growth usually comes after and not before like most people assume.

This is a fact from population/real estate stats.

Unless you have something concrete holding you down (family/massive financial obligations), then show up and start to work. :)

Hope you think about it.

There really is no other place like Whistler. It's unique. :)

Has the potential to be up there with the best

Have some relatives there.

Would be nice to visit and ride instead of visit and drink 24/7, although that's not too bad either. :)

case in point….it's pissed monsoons for three days….ripped two laps in pemby today after not riding since the last bikepark weekend, it ruled!

Got my ass kicked on River Runs.. on the dbl teeter.. lil' too greasy. :|

Agreed on the living here locally, although I only semi-qualify as I'm working both in Whistler and Vanc every week.

Can't wait 'till they finish that dang highway.

Heard something... pedaling up

Disapointed to hear that he's suing. Hopefully he keeps it focused on Marz and doesn't go after the Bike Park too. ( not that he's right suing Marz either) but suing the bike park could really fuck things up for all of us.
Enough of this rant.

Agreed

Heard something... pedaling up

I went up yesterday early morning.

Just rode/walked up the fire road and went down lower A-line.

It's rough but doable and I am not recommending this to anyone.

Not a single person in sight. :)

Just like motorp said.

Dry summer = lots of snowfall in winter

Whistler 7-9th!

It's 9am and I'm about to eat and then head up. Hopefully it will be quiet compared to the last 2 days. :)

Tacky n' sunny.

Why not stay up there ? It'll be packed but there's always some place. If not hit the campgrounds. Chilly but just bring your old lady and she'll keep ya toasty.

Info needed for a french tourist coming to ride the Shore

My advice:
1) Ignore Kookboy: about his Frenchy comment and about Whistler-Blackcomb.com being all the info you need (yes, it's a good place to go, but there are lots of other places to ride too)
2)You can find website links about every aspect of riding (from local guides to retail shops that rent bikes to trail info) at http://www.nsmb.com/links/
3) A good place to start for info about trails on the North Shore is http://www.nsmba.bc.ca/
4)I'm not sure which one's, but I think several of the bike stores in North Van rent bikes.
5)Post in the "Ride Planning and Tales" section and ask if someone might be nice enough to show you a trail or 2 (the promise of beer is usually well appreciated ;) )

Hence the ;) . It's called a joke, thank you very much.

ludnsm, as said above, try the Ride Planning and Tales forum.

Or just PM a few guys. I'm sure you'll get a guide easy.

Cove in North Vancouver/Deep Cove has great rental bikes.
