Re: Hikers and the Sea to Sky Gondola

Took them 6 hours to do the 7.5 km hike to the top? That's uber slow. 48 mins per km, were they crawling?

Weak, crying to the media, entitlement to the max. Hope the selfies at the top received lots of likes. That's what really counts.

Average time is 3-4 hrs apparently (I havent hiked it). They encountered snow and less than ideal conditions so 6 isnt out of the question. Im not defending their choices, but I can see how it might take that long. S2S gondola admitted they have a punitive fee for downloading hikers after closing time to discourage late comers from abusing the system. Its not as if they refused to pay.  The ATM at the top was not functioning, and they were told they were not allowed to pay at the bottom when they downloaded.  Again, they were ill prepared and were not planning to hike back down and both parties deserve some blame, but S2S gondola messed up on this one in my opinion.

Average time on trail head maps is the slowest of slow. Haines valley map at headwaters is 6 hours. A good hiker can do it in half that. I think it took me 2 hours to do the chief last time, and we were going slow due to the group dynamic. 

I am guessing when these two dorks showed up to the gondy way late, an hour was it? They were acting like assholes to the staff, probably deserved the treatment they received. Don't think we have the full story here. Just don't buy it, sorry.

Re: What's important?

Trying to make every moment count. Trying to be the best person you can be.

Appreciate what I have and how lucky we are to live here.

One of my union brothers lost his life a short while ago in a freak accident up at Britannia working on a film set. Left behind wife and young three sons.

Then all of a sudden it's gone.

I'm really learning to appreciate everything, it's been an adjustment.

I lay on my couch or bed all weekend sick as a dog - tell me someone got out and enjoyed the trails and that they are perfect...or better yet, tell me they are a total shit and still full of ice - then I will feel better.

Clear up to the Baden via GSM, powerlines to Severed snow covered, won't be for long.

JD and below totally clear.

You didn't miss much since the weather was so crap yesterday.

How was the Elk Burger? Where did you get it?

He probably shot the Elk. Ethical hardtail orientated meat harvesting is the new thing.

Too bad we can't give thumbs up here.

Shimano fan here and 215lbs... 2-pot XT on trail bike (4 didn't exist at the time) and used Zee/Saint on DH. The shape/lever feel is my favourite thing about them after the power. I don't like the shape of SRAM's levers.

Ya I'm 190. Think I'm leaning towards the 4 piston XT's for the braking power/reliability. Nice to hear who likes what.

Maguras, worth it.

Yeah, why not another set of Maguras? Even then cheap options are great.

You might also consider saints if 4 piston XT are an option?

The maguras are great but I have had to replace both levers due to them being so delicate. I'm a bit of a brute on sports equipment and want something that will survive a beating.

But yeah for the money the mt5s are a great brake.

Looking to buy new brakes for my 29er enduro.

Guide RS or RSC vs 2 piston XT or 4 piston XT?

Currently have the Guide R on the bike, solid OK brake but would like something comparable to my Maguras on bike #2 without buying Maguras.

Good to hear some feedback.

Everyone should stop wasting their time riding ice and slush. The Delta Watershed has been PERFECT two weekends in a row now. As I said before, primo dirt and dry skinnies. What more do you want?

Not having to drive to Delta.
