LOTS is open! Celebration. Definitely getting dusty in the whole Sea-2-Sky - speaking of, isn't this basically just a Sea-2-Sky thread now?

Mosquitoes were kinda bad today on the Westside. Surprisingly not too bad in Pembie. @splitlit should consider riding Live Like Lisa in Pembie as it's rowdy fun.

Anyone wanna tow me into the in deep triple hump? I'm ready to do it but find it difficult to hit such a challenging feature without seeing anyone do it in person first.

I did a LOTS lap this morning. The bugs in the Sproatt alpine have always been bad, but holy crap, it was brutal today! Couldn't stop for more than a minute before getting swarmed. There were still several hike-a-bike snow patches, but at least it gives you a place to chill your beer. Smile

Sorry Thunder. Just missed you. Speed is not your friend on the Triple. Brake check on the second hump and "normal" speed on the last. Garbo dirt was excellent today

No worries I wasn't there today. Next time I go. I've done much harder lines on cypress but it's just the exit that I'm worried about. Looks like you have to make a hard left after the drop?

I'd say it's no harder than say the rock slabs on Wild Cherry. The left isnt bad as there's a root you aim for which deflects you back on the trail. Having said that there's not a lot of vegetation in the runout. I suspect some cook it hot and blow the corner

Sounds like if I just control my speed I'll be fine. Thanks for the advice. I'll consider giving it a go next time I'm there. Just wish my friends had the balls to do it and show me how it's done haha.

Triple Hump isn’t bad as long as you control speed (ie don’t try in the wet for first time, have good tires), you can creep it to the last roll. I find on a DH bike you just roll off the end of the rock and very slight left into the next feature without having to think about it... haven’t tried it on a trail bike.

Noted re: Sproatt — Deet time.

I have a gambler with brand new tires so hoping I will be fine! Thanks for the help. After riding cypress secret trails today I think the triple hump may be easy lol

Not much of a story but an expensive lesson. Stolen overnight from my shed, in which it wasn't locked to anything.

Keep looking on kijiji and other sketch buy sell sites.

Couldn’t hurt to post some stolen pictures at local bike shops in case someone try to bring it in for a service.


Good luck getting it back- I hate thieves so much
