    Steep higher speed hits but with space to recover in between the hits so imo relatively easier. Van, Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton trails dont give you recovery time. Clearly ymmv

    Nelson > Revy...revy has a few good things but overall I always end up expecting a bit more than you actually get. I live in Squamish now but would still give it a solid meh over Whistler or Pemberton...very homogeneous, but intermediates love that shit and the pitch and putt slabs in Alice Lake, there is some fun off map stuff in between the squirrel catchers though that's okay. Squamish trails seem very braided to me though, always end up wondering if I should be on a different line, it's annoying, imo.

    A bonus for Squamish is all the extra Instrgram points you can earn. You can take pictures looking down Howe Sound near sunset and post inspiration quotes about how amazing life is and how #blessed you are.

    Shirk got all creeped out when I kept asking about single family members. I'll even marry a cedar tree if it helps.

    Squampton, Squamladesh, Squantanamo Bay. I enjoy that it seems that the majority of the Stravassholes #namaste of citiots have moved to Squambodia and concentrated their sick insta in one easy to nuke from orbit location.

    Love dogs, hate kids but would jump at the chance for indentured servitude as long as it means I don't have to deal with california cityfolk.

    I think it evens out.

    That's all commonwealth man.

    Murka is different. Canada treats americans like americans treat south americans.




    I tore a hamstring in whistler in like 2007. There was literally no one working in the medical facility then that wasn't a very attractive female. It was weird. I thought I had died.

    yes, perhaps it would be different if you worshiped the Queen ?

    instead you appear to be related to one of them tea-throwers so what do you expect ?

    Young folks from Commonwealth countries can come and work in Canada for 2 years which is enough time to find a marry-able woman ( breathing eh )

    this Kiwi dude had been here on and off for 7 years and had found his meal ticket

    McCall and Leavenworth both have some fun riding if you're looking for more stops along the way.
