    What's Open late March/early April

    Hi from Vancouver..

    Usually we fly down further south around this time to avoid the Vancouver weather/snow.

    Is there a worthwhile destination we can drive to for technical XC and harder (Squamish/Whilster valley trails style) for this time period?

    Cheers

    Syncline & Catherine Creek have some pretty gnarly sections with plenty of rocky, high penalty drops. Post Canyon is a little muddy but the stunts are still all good. YMMV.

    You can easily loop together a 25+ mile ride at Syncline/Catharine Creek/Hospital Hill, but I'd inquire about somebody to lead you around. In the Spring months, and then again in the Fall months, is the best time to ride Syncline.

    There is some ok riding in March/April, but most of the really good stuff doesn't open up for at least another month or so later.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.
