'Airbnb' of mountain biking... crazy? stupid?

I suggest that you leverage your 5% contribution to trails by requiring operators to provide a measurable amount of volunteer time to the trail systems they use. Nothing establishes legitimacy within the mtb community like serving on your local trail association, adopting a trail, providing community education… Generally volunteer time goes a lot further than dollars.

Unfortunately they do not have a map function. You can subscribe to the weekly notices and keep an eye on things in your zone. Often times the blocks are flagged before they are put up for sale.
BCTS in your district will be able to answer any questions.

Vail buys Whistler

Vail's corporate culture is very different than WB. If I were a WB employee I wouldn't be stoked. Expect the resort experience to become more homogenized and geared toward high end guests. WB passes will probably be accepted across the west now if you are into that.

In both Colorado and California, Vail's entry into the market lowered season pass prices. Then again, lots more competition in those markets. I came here to avoid the Death Star… looks like it won't leave me alone.

Heads up if you are planning to ride Pemberton this Saturday, April 30th. There will be some enduroists to dodge. Here is the link to the course:

A good day to check out zones other than Mackenzie but still plenty of options out there. PM me if you would like some suggestions. Conditions are A+ right now.

any idea of total KM and climbing ??

My initial course was a little different and came out at 30km/1550m. I would say this one is certainly no shorter or less elevation gain. A little Google Earth guessing and some math makes it look like the final course will be in the neighborhood of 1800M and 30-35km of riding. Big day!
