    BC 8 Day Itinerary

    Have had some excellent advice and done a decent amount of reading here about various rides/thoughts on the infamous "first time to BC" adventure. With that said, figured I'd still try to get specific feedback on my plan:

    Last week of August. Travelling with GF who is pretty good rider. Probably arrange rides so we can ride flow trails together in the AM and I can ride tech stuff alone in the PM, or all-day separate. Don't want to ride anything that people wouldn't ride on a DH bike.

    YVR to Squamish, arrive evening. Stay in Squamish three nights.

    Squamish Rides:
    Half-Nelson and Angry-Midget stuff
    Boney Elbows and CTHM stuff
    Somewhere Over There stuff

    Stay in Whistler three nights.

    Whistler Rides:
    Park day/afternoon, TOTW, Kyhber, etc
    KMTM and Comf. Numb stuff
    Micro Agression
    Happy Hour/Gargamel

    Ride Pemberton:
    Cream Puff

    Stay in Gold Bridge two nights, Ride big ass Lick Creek Loop

    Drive back to YVR from Gold Bridge.

    Will have pretty strong fitness at that point of summer. Mostly wondering if logistics are too much. Seems like with the amount of time, it's ok to stay in squamish and then whistler separately. I know the push to do Lick Creek/Chilcotin will be a bit much, but think doing it at the beginning or middle would be more awkward.

    Appreciate any insight!

    Well my insight is plan looks good, I am not familiar with chilcotins so can't help there. Pemberton can be very hot/dry then but who knows what next summer will bring. One day in the park seems like a tease to me, everyone says that they aren't interested because they don't ride dh... Well you might if you had the Whistler bike park nearby lol!
    And for specific trail rides in Pemby whistler Squamish you've listed up a bunch of random ones, that are good, but if you want help planning out rides it can be tricky to piece together the good stuff
