    Whistler the week before Crankworx?

    We've been to Whistler a few times, but usually go after Crankworx. This year, due to kids school schedules, we have to go before. What's is like in the village the week before Crankworx? I imagine that people start to roll into town the week before the events start (August 7), but are the crowds unbearable? Is it better to go two weeks before the events start?

    Would love to hear from those of you that have been the week before Crankworx.

    Thanks!

    The biggest pre-Crankworx crush is from people trying to get their vacation at the bike park in before Crankworx starts. There are still Camp of Champs packages running up through the last week of July and the usual crowd. But it can be weather dependent, this year is supposed to be quite hot and dry and the park opens two weeks early on May 2, so it isn't likely to be rained out. It'll likely be busy but about like a good ski season busy, not rock concert crowd busy.

    Here's some crowd shots of the village of the first Sunday of Crankworx in 2012, for the Garbozo DH. That's pretty typical for the events that aren't the big draws like the Slopestyle. So before Crankworx shouldn't be much bigger crowds.

    Won't really be any different than the week after crankworx. I think the crowds are only unbearable a couple afternoons during crankworx and the last few weekends of the season in September and October (if the weather is nice)
