Hey nickel, any chance of upper No Joke this weekend? I see it's closed on the website, guessing winter damage or rebuild? One of my faves. Cheers dude.

One section closed, the section with the roller coaster bridge. A tree fell a few days ago and took out a bridge. The rest of the trail is open.

I think nickel has mentioned recently that it's still early days on that project. I think the PB article last year mentioned they had flagged it all and started some work but it sounded like a 2020 thing at the earliest? Hope to see WCDH racing in Whistler, would be so damn cool.

cheers , guess I never caught the entrance to lower RDS , did ride "shomer shabbos " which is not on trail guide but great bit of trail

how do you enter Midgard etc if peak not open ??

go left at the highway 86 bridge. entrance is just the other side of the creek.

shomer shabos is in fact the very end of lower rds. you can access lower rds from a fair ways further up though, there are 2 places. one after a long strait, another after that at top of cirque du soil.

many thanks , spent loads of time on creekside last year and loved all the trails will be great to explore some more , am guessing the top part of RDS will be a bit wet yet , hoping to explore the older higher trails this year

Anybody ride misfire? Probably my favourite trail in the park. Loamy and super steep in some sections. Felt like a shore loam trail. Get it now before it becomes packed down!

thanks for the tip! Saw them working on it under the gondola the other day if that’s the trail. Looks wicked! Will hit it later this week.

Misfire is f*cking awesome, what a treat to ride it fresh, got super lucky with timing. Sick trail and so fun with the grip and soft dirt now can just hammer it. Great to see steeps and not just bench cut too. Hats off to Gravity Logic on the build. For those that were whining for more single track tech (i.e. me), Misfire to Delayed Fuse delivers.

I was also lucky to be there for the preview opening on Delayed Fuse a few years ago, reminds me of that. Get out and ride it ASAP.
