Re: Whistler Trails 2019 (not WBP)

No parking at the top of Kadenwood. Ride up or get dropped off.

Re: WBP 19

Well all Whistler Bike park edits will be boring now after this.

You can go that way and access them, it's a grunt but doable.

Re: 2018 Squamish Trail Conditions Thread

Value added has one spicy slab with an easy route down it and a harder route. That's what makes is double black, otherwise if you can ride Boney Elbows you will really enjoy this trail, it's definitely worth checking out!

What are your thoughts on riding there right now?

I was going to do some repairs in our place before the renters come, and was wondering if it was worth bringing the bike. 

Is creekside closed yet?

Was rad yesterday riding, its bike worthy.

Creekside is closed though.

Re: Whistler valley trails - need recommendations...

Danimal is a super fun one and worth checking out climb Hot Dog Alley then the new climbing trail off Scotia Creek.

Un-fucking-believable. Another Vail pass fail. All customers require yet another new RFID pass and must sign a new waiver for the bike park. This can only be done in person @ WB Guest Services. Notice of this failure has only been identified and customers informed 8 days before the bike park opens. After last fall, how did they not know this months ago? Bike park customers who are also skiers could've dealt with this during ski season. Instead we get to stand in an hour+ line on opening weekend (which is May long, so add in extra volume of other non-biker WB customers standing in the same line for sightseeing and other tickets). I fucking called them multiple times asking if my pass would work over a month ago and was told my 2017/18 WB ski pass would work fine.

Email COO psonntag@vailresorts.com to complain about this bullshit.

First world problems buttercup, take it easy. You are from the city aren't you?

Re: WBP 18

I am so looking forward for Bike Park season to return. I just needed to post somewhere about it.

No different than having the snow making systems in the winter, and you don't have to worry about the lines freezing.

has anyone here done the monster HAB up the heli drop route(rainbows end) and ride down it? 

curious. how that descent compares to LOTS?

I did the drop on Rainbow this year. The route down from the Alpine has a couple parts and is pretty mellow, but as noted above when you get to the tree line is where the fun starts. It's black technical chutes that go on for quite a while. Super fun if you like and can handle that kind of stuff.

Re: WBP 17

Check the road closures, as the northbound lanes get shut down in the morning.  If you dig loose, dry, chundery rowdiness the park will be all yours that Saturday, and looks like we may finally get some rain.

Re: WBP 17

New Aline ending is sweet, and they have redone the jump and it doesn't seem to be destroying people anymore. The rain today also should help get rid of the dust.

Bye Giant.

A voice of reasonable authority told me it's GT.

You are correct, I got confirmation of the same.
