Strength in Numbers - Free Whistler Segment

Aug 6, 2012 at 16:05
by Anthill Films  


One version of ‘living the dream’ is a lifestyle based around spending every day riding endless downhill. Like a die-hard surfers living close to the beach, passion-driven riders are building a community around the world famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park. This dream requires sacrifice. But no sacrifice is too big for the committed. In the greater mountain bike community we hold these people up as purists. They are the ones we think of when we feel trapped in our own routines. They are the ones that help keep our dreams alive.

 I remember once when it just got done raining i tried to do that drift that one dude does out of a drop. Yeah my back tire ended up in front of me and i just looked really stupid when i ate shit..

 For the screen shot I just opened it full screen 1080p, hit print screen, and pasted to paint. It's now the background on my phone Razz

 Forget a screenshot. I want an 8' x 10' poster to hang on my ceiling so that's the last thing I see before I fall asleep each night.

 Bought the movie on iTunes. Started watching it on the bus ride in to work. Got so jacked up when the Whistler part started that I had to turn it off for fear of losing my sh*t. The Anthill guys totally nailed it with the reverse-time-lapse effect. And that freakin' whip at the end is RIDICULOUS.

 Ummmm.. "I wish dirt fell like snow..." Get a snowboard or a set of skis or a snowbike... there is no excuse to not have fun and progress. Other then that, the scene with the mile long foot drag... F**K'n sweet!

 That last whip was insane, sent chills down my spine. My lifetime goal is to live in whistler, for a consecutive 5 years in my life, and I plan on achieving that in my 20's.
  • + 3
 That is a good goal and totally achievable. I bet the hardest part will be after the five years are done and you want another five.
  • + 1
 i have the same goal as rippin norco but its another 5 years until i can legally move out of my parents house Frown

 The entire winter is worth it for the magic of that opening day. The anticipation, the build up and the atmosphere awaiting that first day is not something anybody should be without.

 Absolutely fantastic film. I was inspired by the clip to buy the bluray, which is such a beautifully filmed peice of work. Only minor critism is that it is only 45 mins long, which is not grat value for money when it cost £25 for the bluray/dvd version.

Not a whinge, just would have loved to have seen more footage.

10/10 for the film Smile

 Whistler looks busy as hell. Doesn't it get bunged up on the trails?
  • + 3
 I rode there Sunday. minimal line ups. Garbanzo zone, ride up to the chair jump on. we rode from 11:00 AM until 7:30 PM.
some of the popular trails are busy. but there are tons of trails that are never busy. trust me you will not be disappointed .Beer
