patrolled on a camox for 2 seasons. decent enough. washes out plenty enough.
ski the '17 corvus in a 183 and I love it.
I have found scarpas to fall apart with prolonged wear and tear, but that is not in a snowy work environment.
I like my muck boots, with a steel toe. They are a bit clunky, though quite warm and not too heavy. They are great to sled in. And I can fit a bama sock inside.
Go find Tobias, he's lift ops mgr, and ask him what he wears.
You've just signed up for a difficult job, but the people who have been doing it for a long time will steer you in the right direction, listen to them.
I love a good ending.

Shogun, just stop. I can guarantee that a woman that you know and are close to was raped when she was young, but she never told anyone. It is shockingly common, but morons like yourself think it is like reporting a robbery so it doesn't make sense that they didn't just cruise down to the station and report it. Of course, after being raped it stands to reason that most people probably don't want to have their bodies examined inside out the next morning. It also makes sense that once you Google the stats and see how hard it is to win a rape case, especially if the offender can afford a top attorney that you might not want to sit in front of a jury and rehash every drunken night and sex act you ever committed so that the defense can convince the judge that you are really just a slut that wanted it.
Now let's say someone pinned you down and raped you at a party when you are 19. You are ashamed and don't report it, hoping to just go on with life. The event haunts you, but you manage to get it together, start your career etc. Then years later, the man that forced himself on you wants to be a Supreme Court Justice. He is on TV and everyone is saying what a great citizen he is. He should be venerated for life. What would you do?
The victims all welcome an FBI investigation. BK and the GOP... not so much.
No I'm aShogun (and a Surrey boy) :P
Believe me, there was times in Surrey where I thought the only thing left to happen to me was get raped. Two gun and two knife incidents by the time I'm 20. But coincidentally, I didnt report that also because a brown guy with a gun/knife isnt exactly going to nail anyone in an investigation.
And for record, no matter how bad my ass hurts, I'm going vigilante on whoever rapes my ass. If you think thats hiliariously bad, wait for my next post.
So, you get raped and you are going vigilante. She gets raped and she's not allowed to?
theres a lot to be said about the process of making beer can shims. and sometimes you need a number of shims.
I have the cascadia fenders and after 5 years of mega use, some of the rubber fell off... pretty reasonable considering how cheap they are.
pro: breakaway tabs at the mounts
con: will likely need to modify to fit anything that has mtb geometries or lots of space between the bottom of the crown and wheel.

I will add "out there" to the list of best bang for the buck trails but unfortunately hard to loop with anything else. Good for a one hour rip.
Up to Micro or DC, up Yummy- comf numb-golden door - Out There... One of the best loops in the s2s.
I am on the Island for the next week. I know nothing. Any intel much appreciated.
I'll hopefully be linking up with my buddy sometime next week for some stuff up the island, but would love to spend some days in and around Victoria.
Emphasis on the knowing nothing.
nyone know if / where we can leave our trucks so we can self-shuttle back to the lodge?
yes you can. there is a gate at the end of the gun creek rd, and there is a bit of space there where you can ditch your car. Don't block the road or gate as people use the road to access the jewel bridge. Make sure your car isn't blocking any trails that the Chilcotin Holidays folks might use for their tours.

but I take it you guys don't try to clean Windy Pass or Camel Pass
Every time I ride I try to clean windy (haven't made it through the switchbacks yet) Camel can be done if you don't kill yourself on the taylor rd.
Back in the day I used to bike up to the resort for fun solo or with my gf. Novelty I guess. Views are nice. I remember we'd session one weird slab at the top. I dunno, it was when biking for me was limited to doing one big long descent and being utterly shattered after.
I rode more than 30 days last year in the chilcotins on 2.3 DHF front and 2.3 minion SS rear set up tubeless on a rootdown. Money combo.
Warner - Spruce has loads of rocks and a bunch of bench cut through scree and boulder, so having a beefier tire is preventative wishful thinking.
Depending on your route from spruce to tyaughton (I assume windy or camel) you will be on singletrack, but the descents will be flowy, rocky, variable. The DHF is great for the descents. If you were doing Spruce to Tyax via gun meadows then yes, that combo is overkill, but the climbing is pretty limited and they are short and punchy.
If you are going Warner-Gun Meadows and your party is in reasonable shape, you are going to find yourself covering distance at a good pace. The hardest part of the day is Warner- Spruce.
PLUS ALL THE RIDING ON THE DRIVE UP THERE AND BACK!
