    Nice Lee, thanks for starting this.

    How's that hustler? Is it 'DW' bike like their others?
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Its not blue and/or green, so no...not endro. Besides, endro isn't a type of bike, its a lifestyle color pallet.

    It's a horstlink with a tweak to the linkage to lessen the chain growth. Pretty cool so far. Fun bike. Not a plodder for sure

    Opening day means new berms. Berms berms berms --- mmmmm. It also meant a few lines as everyone in this town or in the Sea to Sky corridor apparently took the day off in anticipation of the weekend's crowds.

    But it was sunny; it was good to see the same old faces, and to ride the same trails.

    Of course all the trail opening information is at the WBP website. 80% of the lower mountain trails are open.

    Have at it and have a season that doesn't include a visit to the Clinic!


    Berms, berms, berms


    Dry trails!


    From top left to bottom right: (1) The Goldstones are a fixture; (2) Lineups at CS weren't bad at all; (3) Conga line on Heart of Darkness; (4) Tom Radke starting another season of instruction




    Watch out on the trails for obstacles

    Monday in the park was super fun, we were planning on skiing a token run or two but didn't want to get off the bikes. Weather was a bit cool but no rain and even a bit of sun toward the end of the day. The blue trails I was riding were all in good shape and dry (although I thought the brake bumps would be buffed out each season?).

    After a few months of learning the ropes on Fromme, the blues in the park are feeling easy to do at speed. I love the spacing and pace of the jumps on Crank it Up. Looking forward to checking out some of the harder stuff as the summer goes on.

    Bear family under Fitz who later moved down to where Heart of Darkness crosses the lift line, zero fucks given about bikers:

    Haha! they do! Sometimes 2-4 times a season depending on weather. People brake a lot (imagine needing to slow down while bicycling down the mountain eh? crazy!). Try varying your line into corners.

    In other news.... biking is pretty fucking sweet.

    Some old shots I just got sent from last fall, and some new shots from last weekend.

    I am a puddle terrorist, and love every minute of it. Photo - Stephen McVeigh Images.


    And another from learning to bike in snow, oh fail.


    Last weekend:











    I'm shooting the Crud2Mud race tomorrow for WB - hopefully see some mags in there racing! One of my fav events to shoot. I did it solo my first year and ohhhh buddy, pain cave.

    Nice pics Nads.

    Not Whistler, but has anyone checked out the Coast Gravity Bike Park in Sechelt yet? They are doing truck shuttles this season and hopefully installing a lift for next year.

    They made the GLC rockdrop a rolldown for you! Seriously though its now setup as a big sender. The other GLC drop is now a perfect floater too

    I heard it's no longer gas to flat if you really send it, but also easier to roll for the noobs. GLC patio watching just won't be the same anymore.

    The GLC2 drop is nice though. Just never got a picture of it but a video. It's actually very nice; if you go too fast its a sender to flat. Go in coasting, one pedal stroke and its nice. Go too slow and you'll coast. It might be a good producer
