Im not talking trip, im talking a whole move. Ill be able ot work from there and everything. My only thing to figure out is how bad do I want my car with me, which will be very likely and am I willing to pay 2k to ship my car thats only worth.... about 2k lol Im thinking of flying into Van or driving across country and seeing all of Canada, im 32 and never been west of Ontario.

Well if your downhill riding has been mostly Blue, its actually a good base of skills, however when I first rode western downhill trails I could not believe how long they are, your skills improve much quicker and your muscle mass grows fast. If you have never been west of Ontario once you get into the Rockies you will be in shock....Drool

Have fun and don't feed the bears!

Yea, it's like nothing else. Last time I spent a couple weeks in Squamish, man, it was so sick. Enjoy dude!

I guess you might need to go to a bigger center to find work, but I'd be looking at interiors towns in a perfect world.

Rossland, Fernie, Castlegar, Revelstoke, etc,

Headed to the island. Hidden gem. Lots of great riding. Mild temps in winter

I just read on there website



We understand that you’ve been waiting for an update on the status of Bike Park operations for 2021.

After a lot of review and deliberation, Blue Mountain has elected to discontinue lift access biking as of this spring.

Man.....this really sucks
What a sad day for lift accessed riding in Ontario.

Stuck between being appreciative for the last 18 or so years and frustrated on the couple thousand in upgrades to a now worthless bike.


Might have to make my way to Horseshoe.

Well hopefully Horseshoe will still run.

I will miss Blue but I hear Horseshoe is expanding their park....

That's to bad to hear. There is at least horseshoe but it just doesn't have the same quality of terrain. Blue didn't have much vertical height but it did have some good trails with technical sections.
