    Paid for my Season + TotW pass last week. Hopping mad that I'm stuck in English land right now.

    Next month, then until I run out of money and have to go back to the real world.

    I'm hoping to get there for a day or two in September, which will make exactly 7 years since the last time I rode the park.

    I haven't been yet this year and I'm more or less local. I'm doing my best to avoid the weekend since I ride solo... so I try to avoid the long lineups for the lift. The trail bike has been getting a lot more use than the DH bike, that's for sure.

    Just got back from two weeks there with my family and some friends. Also did a day of trail riding on a rental in Squamish.

    Going again with some friends the last week of September.

    I know it's unpredictable, but when does the snow fly and the TOTW and Garbo close? September sounds like a good time to get up there. Are the trails back in good condition then or blasted out from Crankworks yet?

    Trails are usually fine in Sept, but there is way more chance of excess rain/mud.

    I've just come to embrace excess rain/mud as my lot in life. Three trips to Whistler in the last year, 12 days total (June, July, and September trips), and got rained on 10 of 12 days. I'm OK with that. Short lift lines, and hero dirt between the rain showers.

    The only really kinda miserable day was fighting the crowds and baking in the lift line on a hot sunny June Saturday before Garbo was open. I'll take the rain over the heat.

    LOL.....I was just up there week and a half ago. Rained on us all three days we were there. Actually, started raining as we pulled into town the night before. We saw all the Extreme Fire Danger!!! signs.......while it was raining on us.

    I"ll be back for a week some time in September, so you'll have to wait a little.

    And could you guys please keep your smoke to yourself? The air down here in Oregon is getting really thick from forest fire smoke supposedly blowing down from BC.

    I only got a 5-day pass this year. I had a feeling I wouldn't be going a lot this year. As the years go on, I go less and less because of work and life in general getting in the way. I just back into town today and planned on driving to Whistler for the day on Monday.... Nope, not gonna happrn: Crankworx is still on. I know to stay away during that event.

    Six sleeps until I get on the lift for the first time in 7 years! Looks like I am bringing the rain with me, as I land in YVR on Sunday night.
