They smoothed out the tech section?!? I hope they didn't. I love that part.

Yeah....like I mean super flat! The deep trough down the middle is gone. Looks like it was just filled in so give it time I’m sure it’s gonna be back to the same. Filled in all the braking bumps after the tech section too so that was super nice.

Boooooo. But I prefer tech over flow. That was my favourite part of A line

Sometimes its best to keep you mouth shut. That part was in need of some TLC.

Hopefully if you are complaining like this you put in your fair share of trail maintenance.

Dunno why anyone would complain about filling in the A-line tech section trench? The point of A-Line is jumps and speed, if things are buffed out just ride faster. It's not like they are cutting all the roots out of In Deep or something.

Can anyone recommend some suitable blue or black wet weather riding trails in the Whistler valley (non park)?

IBT/AMPM, and Hind Sight too

I'd also throw in Billy Epic as a great wet weather trail

Ok Howler sounds good, maybe some of the other ones suggested too, time permitting. Thanks everybody.

Are the Sproatt alpine trails actually open? RMOW reports/status on Trailforks seem to say so but thought I’d ask with the rain today.

I noticed that too. Appears to be open? LOTS and mystic are green circles now, which I'd assume means good to go?

THANK YOU! If you want to ride tech, go ride Canadian open or detroit rock city, in deep, anything else that what is referred to as a jump trail.....

Hi!

Does anyone got a spare chain tensioner spring for a Zerode Taniwha around Whistler? Mine broke and the replacement part is stuck in customs/ lost by UPS.

Thanks and Cheers,
Sebastian
