    Although to be honest, this isn't the Lee Lau show.
    If all we are going to see is Lee's stoke (rock rolls and berms ad nauseum), then maybe he needs to start his own thread.
    Call it the "Lee Lau Whistler Stoke Bike and Ski Thread"
    There ain't nothing wrong with the issues we discuss here, and it isn't like I'm the only one contributing to non-stoke.
    And what the fuck is biking stuff being put in this thread anyways -
    THAT'S SPROCKETS STUFF
    Put it along with Carbon Ceramic discs and everything else in BIKES.

    Whistler 2019 - 2020

    Checked out the Pot of Gold and Ninja Lakes zone today. An extra level of awesomeness up there now.

    I only saw 3 ebikers poach it too. Not bad considering the world we live in. I told them to bring their dog next time. I think they kinda believed me.

    nice, looking forward to getting back there, Stu, I've only been out to Hanging so far....long term there's some more cool ideas, hopefully we can navigate the bears and watershed and convince the powers that be to let us put in the traverse from Rainbow/ninja over to Rainbow's End in the vicinity of skywalk junction...since Rainbow Trail will always be hike only, it would be nice to get that connection in so bikes can ride loops instead of out and backs.

    Wow looks mint already? Saw thereís the usual snow drifts on On the Rocks. You are probably fitter than I, but how much time did the Ninja loop add from Into the Mystic?

    Itís a big effort to get up there so the more alpine trail to enjoy the better! I hope those build out plans can happen soon.

    I saw two bears today. Both were within 100 m of Rainbow park..

    Yeah On the Rocks still had snow and mud that was kinda a buzz kill so I cut off the Last Call section.

    The trip out to Ninja Loop etc adds at least an hour (RETURN) from the end of Into the Mystic. It has climbs and descents both ways so not a huge effort to get back. Well worth it. There is a sick view at the Rainbow hiking turnoff. I might bring some trail shoes next time and do a walk from there.

    Latest word on the border, an artical by the people's broadcasting corp

    86% of Canadians polled want the border left closed so there is no politcal will to re-open it

    middle to late 2021 until the border opens is the estimate which would kill the ski season in Whistler

    The upside of a wet June and July is that the forest and the moss is still that saturated green. That combined with dirt of tacky goodness is making for a pretty good (albeit a tad late) summer. Some old, some new but always better in the Whistler northsideClick image for larger version.

    Nice bike stoke from everyone there.
    My legs are still struggling with 1000m days but girlfriend is forcing me up LOTS tomorrow morning no matter what. Got to get ready for chilcotins somehow.

    Well, all the Canadians who normally travel south for skiing now need a new place to go, so....

    On the one hand, I'm happy that my reverse psychology has resulted in more stoke being posted here.
    On the other, what's missing is a picture of Lee's BIG TOE!

    This is the last place I'd come to still feel part of the whistler scene.
    There is a website called Face Book and there is a lot more Whistler community there than here.
    However, if you have pictures of you and your loved ones doing rock rolls and #forest #bathing, especially naked ones,
    this is the best forum.
    And it is a great place to find larger version of Lee's IG posts.
    Same posts, but LARGER.


    Big Toe please. Not your dick, just your toe.

    Hopefully just a heads up. Seeing wildlife in the wild is ok. But some Karen will probably kick up a fuss and get us banned from the area.

    Saw the pics from Mitch Sulkers. Looks like a big one... to be honest I ride solo and donít ride with bear spray (most of my riding is North Snore/Squamish) so that freaks me out a bit. Need to get some or maybe pass on Ninja Lakes. Of course actually needing to use it is extremely remote if you pay attention and take precautions, but still cause for concern.

    just make lots of noise while you ride, particularly in areas with limited vision or if you're moving downhill relatively quickly...they don't really want to interact with you, and if you give them enough warning they'll likely make themselves scarce. If you do get bear spray, and for it to be useful and effective, it needs to be accessible immediately, I've either ski strapped it to my frame, or put it in waterbottle holder, or my big day chilcotins pack has an exterior bottle pockets on either side that I can reach with a hand. If you do have an encounter, it would likely be a surprise and if your spray is in your pack, it's useless.

    Todd's advice is great but i wouldn't be too concerned about being alone out that way. When I intersected the hiking trails there was a group of maybe 25 influencers out there taking selfies and having lunch etc. You'll be fine solo, don't hesitate.
