It was open for a couple days then was re-closed when I went back up yesterday. There is a rumor that someone crashed really hard on it

Can't shuttle, but it's a chill 30 minutes up the fire road, 40 minutes if you climb the 3 pigs (switchbacky trail).

*this is assuming you have a bike you can pedal.

You aren't gonna find a Rollercoaster like Dirt Merch anywhere but whistler, but Unemployment Line and SST are very much worth checking out if you like airtime opportunities. There's also a new jump area off of Cedar dust which (if open) is really good.

Not a rumour. Couple people ate shit real hard, some dude broke both wrists, so they had to rework a couple of the bigger/steeper ones. Not idea when it’ll open again.

Going to be in bellingham for the next few days!
Super stoked to check out the area for the first time. My brother and I were going to ride double black diamond and double down this afternoon but the next two days are gonna be up in galbraith, I was hoping you guys could recommend your favorite trails. Also if anyone would want to shuttle, let me know! I also heard awesome things about Wander brewery. Thanks already Beer

Irish Death and Evo are great, Pump Track is also fun. Rode Spacewolf not that long ago and I enjoyed it. Kinda a ways out but I did it on my DH bike so it's possible. SST is also another good one.

Space wolf, SST, evolution, atomic dog, unemployment line are all cool.

Aslan is my favourite brewery in town.

Download Trailforks to stay oriented on the mountain. You'll see there are two main access points to Galbraith - from the south and from the north. Personally, I prefer starting from the north and riding loops that end with SST to Backdoor. But really, you can't go wrong (unless you bring a DH bike - haha).

Wander is excellent - just won several national awards. It's dog-friendly and has a rotating selection of food trucks out front. It's only one of about 13 breweries here though - I also recommend Kulshan Brewing, Menace, Structure, and Aslan for their great patios. Boundary Bay is dependable, and Elizabeth Station is your stop if you want to check a bottle shop. If you're holding a joint subcommittee hearing, Herbal Legends is a short hop from Kulshan on James.

Hey guys, moving up there from CO in the fall. Just looking for an opinion on bike shops, who is your favorite and why?

I have.not had a bad experience at any Bham shop per se. Nearly all brands are represented. What do you ride? What needs do you have? The best suspension tech I know is Greg of Butter Suspension. He is down in Renton, but worth the annual trip for Reverb, fork, and shock rebuilds.

I guess you answered my question for my main needs, which will be suspension. I can do just about everything myself except for suspension service and wheel truing (mostly since I don't have a stand).

I just ask since where I live there's definitely some shops with that kinda dick "cool guy" attitude. I can't stand that shit haha
