I can't fit a water bottle to my bike and was thinking I'd prefer to ride without my camelbak if possible. How easy is it to get water if you're just doing laps? Many water fountains around?

Edit: Nevermind, just searched the thread and found my answer.

afaik R dog was first to 3 crab. He did it the very day we opened the hits worth the 4th and 5th as they are now. I'm sure he's done it again since. I'm sure others have done it, and I'm fairly certain none have made it look as good.

Its supposed to rain in Whistler tomorrow so Im looking for non-park trails that are decent in the wet. Im doing the blacks and have tried the double blacks like Jaws and ACDC but would prefer not to kill myself lol.

I rode Billy Epic and Howler in the rain when I was in town last month, both were fun and not scary. Could always ride bluey epic around the steep part if it's too greasy.

Thanks man! Seen the POV but couldn’t figure out who it was. I think spinning crabapple is insane

Would like to know as well. I will be at Whistler from Sept 1 - Oct 1. Usually when is the end of season pass available and how much?

end of season pass is active from the Tuesday after labor day if I'm not mistaken, which i believe is the 3rd? I'd expect to see it on the Web and the bike park insta shortly.

Nope. Your picture comes up on the lifties iPad and you will be plucked from the line and banned for a year. And buddy who sold the pass also gets a 1-2 year ban I believe.

They used to have bounties for lifties busting pass fraud as well.

Passes are so cheap for the value you get that you'd have to be a real scumbag to try this.

also, by then you can get a full and risk free pass for around 300 bucks.

I bet anyone who buys buddy's pass doesn't even get a full day out of it before getting kicked out of the lift line with an extended ban.
