Whistler can keep its snow. The riding is great everywhere else!

Garbo can wait, still got a beef with it after breaking my elbow up there in August anyway!
yeah I was gonna try and come up monday afternoon to get a quick ride in, then I looked outside from my office desk and it had gone from sunny to blizzard, so I just worked longer!

Rode around a little bit of cut yer bars today. about half snow-dirt in the first bit, but as you climb further towards where the trail splits, it becomes snowier.

also checked out emerald forest, snow seems to be only on the trail, not the surrounding treed area.

hoepfuilly this forecast rain brings snow to the alpine and clearing snow from trails below

WHen should I expect the valley trails to start opening? I have a few days up there soon - keen to look around. Otherwise Pemberton it is.

Pembie for sure - been awesome, loamy, grippy, trails for the last 3+ weeks. Temps are perfect too, somewhere around 10C to 15C on average, which means no early season over-heating on the grunts up!

Rode Lower Your Seat to Train Wreck back to Function yesterday. Only a couple of very small snow patches on TW. And one big one when coming out to the tracks at one point.
I would guess that Train Wreck is clear to the South end but then it's a gamble as to whether the access road to Runaway Train is clear.

How's the DSF on Train Wreck? For whatever reason, spring thaw and TW always had me hittin' piles of pooch goo. Never fun.

Didn't notice any poop. But there seems to have been an explosion in camp fires! There were several from the train wreck coming back towards Function. There was one fire placement that was verging on being in the middle of the trail!

The poop factor is very high on Old Millar's Creek Road.
