@TucsonDon: bang on. When you combine the cost of a jacket, pants, helmet, gloves, boots, bindings, probe, shovel, beacon, Avy course, and paid in season pricing it's a huge cost. That's if you went with just a jacket. If you went with a 3 layer setup, base layer, insulation, shell. That shit gets pricy real fast. On a bike you need a helmet, and a bike. You likely already have some sort of shoes, t shirt, shorts.

@Bragelonne: I have plenty of touring stuff. This is besides the point.

This is the best. You don't have a clue. Whistler bike park doesn't exist from Internet dirtbags like us trying to scrimp every penny. It exists because people pay to go there. They spend their dollars on renting a condo, eating at the restaurants, drinking some beers at the GLC, putting their kids in a day camp, trying their hand at the zipline, maybe buy a lift ticket or four. The benefit of that is that Lifties get paid, the lift gets paid for, the trail crew gets paid, the park patrol gets paid, and we get to ride at the biggest bike park in the world. Ever looked at a rental on the hill in Revy during the winter season? It's a huge number, it's that number because it gets rented at that. I have never had the luxury of renting on the hill there, usually end up on a couch of a gracious friend.

@Bragelonne: cheaper? What? Perhaps the entry cost is less. But the operation cost is significantly more. Very few people ski tour. So you have to buy a lift ticket or a pass. Usually people travel to go skiing, ever look at what a condo costs to rent? Even still, a nice ski/boot/binding package is going to be the better half of 2.5k. A ski helmet essentially starts at $150. You can spend so much more on ski apparel than cycling. Look at what a descente or spyder jacked costs. Mtb goggles are what? $50-100? Ski goggles start at $100.

Whistler Village Randoms: Crankworx 2016
@TheFunkyMonkey: if you read the etrto numbers they are accurate in sizing. They will post a number like 584x50 and that is the actual size in mm.
