    I will be there. Probably won't go all the way to the top though.

    Last Saturday the top was closed due to snow, but was open again on Sunday. I don't think they will open the top if there is any sort of accumulation.

    Just got back yesterday. Garbo was closed Thursday and Friday. I got soaked riding Thursday with light rain all day but scattered showers and sun on Friday. It was like 10 minutes of light rain every couple of hours but nothing to stop the riding. It wasn't very cold either so even though your feet were soaked halfway through the day you still weren't too uncomfortable. Had suprisingly good grip on the rock faces(Joyride/Nationals) even when wet. Had a blast. So long Whister! See ya next year!!!

    Just got back from Whistler tonight and it was a blast. The weather was perfect, at least for this time of the year. Garbo was open and the trails were in good shape, wet but not snotty. Everything else was in prime condition as well. It only rained for a little bit and towards the end of the day things were getting a little sloppy but still not bad overall. The last two runs up Garbo it actually started snowing on us so there's a good chance today was the last chance to ride up there till next year. Wish I had gotten up there more this year, I'm already looking forward to next year. Till next year Whistler, I'll be dreaming of you all winter long.

    Great day yesterday ... well till i jammed my knee straight into a rock on Shleyer. It happened around 3. The run after that I blew my tire off the rim hitting the GLC drop. Having a stans wheel blow isnt a quick fix, and since i was hurting already i decided to end the day. We did get a few top runs down freight train that were really fun, and some good rippers down DM and A-line.

    And as always we drive home talking of having something like this in our back yards... Would be nice not to have a 10 hour drive to get to it.

    Hey, T- you didnt call yesterday. Do you still want that Ti spring?

    Good Times the Trails were awesome, A-line berms felt like Velcro!

    The Joyride DH was so much fun. Tyler Moreland won on that new Cove Vpp style bike, Boe rocked with a 5th in open (nice job he had a good bobble too), I did pretty good (rode a bit conservative) w/ an 8th overall. Was pretty amazing how smooth the race went, didn't really even feel like a race! The roller coaster deal at the bottom was a bit scary, but I don't think anyone got hurt.
