How late in the year can you ride Pemby?

So the park shuts early October, can many trails in Pemberton be ridden much later?

2012 Conditions... (Whistler Bike Park)

Just want to say, the section of Freight Train from the container to the side track/duffman/etc trail split is one of the best little bits of fun ever.
It's up on GarbAnzo ;)

Someone on the lift told me there is a trail that goes from EZ does it to Alta Vista.
I'm out in Creekside so it would help with my "commute" home.
Anyone know of such a thing?
Cheers

Whistler bum?

Hey DirtySanchez thanks for the info, I'm trying to get a plan together at the moment.
I'll PM you for more info when I know what I'm up to.
Glad to hear you're back into biking after such a bad crash.

Thanks for the tips Wheeldrop, that's some "priceless" information there.
That's a good offer on the vans/shack but not sure if you'd want to wait until late June to get your season pass.
I'll bear it all in mind though, I know what you look like so I might be in touch sometime June/July if I make it over.
(I once saw you from the lifts last season "collecting your thoughts" after the stepdown on Lower Canadian Open, looked like a decent crash, your saddle had gone awol etc)

Thanks for the advice everyone.
Sounds like a van is the way to go.
I'll check out Cal Cheak too

Whistler bum?

How's it going?
Whistler is calling me again and I'm working hard to save up money to stay as long as possible for the summer of 2012.
I know I'll only have enough money for about a month or two but that's not going to be enough Whistler goodness for me. I'd love to spend mid June to Sept/October there.

I've been to Whistler three times before including travelling around BC in a van for 3 months so I've got a reasonable idea of what to expect and the "awesome" food prices.
I'm from the UK and can't get a temp work permit/bunac as I'm over 30 (I qualify for attempting residency but waiting time is roughly 48 months :cry: )

Does anyone have any ideas on how to last a season there without a work permit?
I definitely want to be in or near the village and I just want to ride my bike as much as possible.
I'm not bothered about partying so don't need a beer budget.
Is living in a van possible anywhere other than Riverside campground?
Does anyone know of any good bins/trash to hang around for food scraps etc?
Any help/ideas would be great
Cheers
