Also there are so amazing trails in the surrounding areas (As seen on Youtube). I have yet to ride BC but its soon.

Whistler has an amazing set of trails that gradually progresses from pretty much a road all the way to very scary pro features.

Best bike park I’ve visited, hands down.

Thanks all for the feedback, I may have undersold my skills. I’ve done Morzine reds without issue, but feared that Whistler was a whole other level of schred/gnar/schralpage.

Some trails and moves in the park are serious business, but much of the park is accessible to average riders.

Booking your flight will probably be the riskiest thing you do!

My dad said the wanted to do a canoe trip with me one year. It didn't happen.

When I could do it he said he was too old. And now refuses to contemplate any other canoing trips. He's 72 now, it's unlikely to happen.

Try it, make the memories.

I've been to whistler twice. It will be fine on the blue and green runs then work your way up.

And don't skip past the green runs! Del Boca Vista is friggin amazing fun!

It’s looking more and more like a goer, 12 months for COVID to beggar off and gives me the chance to hopefully show my youngest child, how to properly send it .

So, bike hire in Whistler, four days on an enduro, and one on an outrageously overbiked DH rig. Where to book with?

Arbutus routes has sb165’s and sb150’s for use in the bike park and sb140’s and sb130’s (i think) for the trail network. Nice being able to drop them back there while you go have lunch to avoid paying for a stolen yeti. Plenty of places in town to rent dh rigs

Buddy of mine rented yetis from Arbutus last summer. Proper bikes - well tuned, good advice from the shop.
