Re: WBP 18

I am planning to ride Sunday as well but not sure if it will be worthwhile if there are a lot of closures for the race.

Re: WBP 18

Both Earth Circus and Insomnia are open. You need to take Dusty's to get there but still worthwhile. Will be nice once Southpark is finished. Be prepared to wear out a set of brake pads on Dusty's if you want to do multiple laps.

Re: Froome Gate Update

Any update on current hours for the lot. I thought I heard it's open to 9.00pm now but haven't been able to confirm

Re: WBP 18

Good to hear that there will be new trails on creekside. That should help a lot to alleviate the lines on fits. I wonder if they keep the creekside parking free.

Ski tuning deals?

Skiis and biikes (aka Snowcovers) used to have their 2 for 1 ski tuning deal at this time of the year. It was probably one of the best deals in town. Especially since the tunes were done a computerized state of the art Montana machine.

But now that they have closed their Vancouver and Whistler stores, that deal is no longer available :(

I was wondering which local shops offer similar quality tunes for good price.

Re: WBP 17

7YW pt2 cracked today... Was nice to ride something completely fresh. You certainly don't get to do that everyday esp in the bike park.

HOD has received some love too. Don't think I have ever seen it running so prime.

And yeah... Today was definitely was all time. Between the hero dirt, touch ups, no lines, no closures and warm sunny weather.. it had to be the best day I've had up there ever

So Whistler is closed for tomorrow and Thursday for asbestos removal, which is good because today was awful.

See you Friday+

I'll be joining the asbestos removal crew tomorrow 😉

Re: WBP 17

Today was one of the best days I've had up there in months. What a difference a bit of rain makes.

Re: WBP 17

May want to check out all the different trail closures if anyone is heading up during Crankworx. Definitely park at Creekside though as I'm sure that some of the day lots space will be in use for the event.

There is some rain expected on Sunday which should help to revive some of the dry trails

Did TotW today.  There was snow where I expected there to be no snow and no snow where I predicted the snow to be. Not much of it left.  It's all near the top in the OOB ski area. I only do this once a year so my knowledge of it is low, but it seemed like it was almost all open?

Also did that trail the powerful brake-pad Lobby built - Dusty's. Can't wait for alternatives.

Thanks for the TOTW update. Been waiting for it to open.  

Good description of Dusty's. I thought the same when I rode it for 1st time. Good for burning up the brake pads and that's about it  lol..

Re: WBP 17

Update on creekside trail expansion.

Also TOW opens this Saturday!!  I didn't think it would be possible given the huge snowpack up top.
