http://www.seatoskyadventurecompany.com/shuttle-service.html is one option or rent a pick-up.

Yes rent a pickup guys ..that way you get to where you want to be. .much better than a shuttle.

I'm planning on checking out squamish later in the summer. Is a 140mm travel fs bike like a Turner sultan enough bike or is a 160mm bike a better fit. Also how bad is the ride back to the top of the trails?

Ride back to the top is awesome. and super chill. I ride a hardtail in squamish pretty much everywhere and it's fine! So any bike will be good to ride!

Does anyone know if there is still snow on the upper trails, ie cakewalk?

I am coming to squamish May 6-9. I was wondering if there are any group rides going on that weekend or anyone that would like to show me some sweet single track. I like blue to single black technical descents also some flowy trails. I am horrible on jumps so no jump trails for me. Thanks in advance!!!!

4-5 days in Squamish is still not enough time to see everything (especially if you include Brittania). But the caveat here is that it does depend a bit on the skill level of you and your lady. If you want to ride all the gnar, you will be kept busy for a week. If you and your girl want to see all the easy and intermediate stuff and dabble a little in the gnarly stuff you can do that in a few days. I'm sure there will be some trails you want to ride twice, so there's no way you're going to get bored in 5 days even if you aren't up for riding all the double blacks. If you want to check off all the single and double blacks in Squamish and Britannia, and hit all the best intermediate stuff as well, you're going to be pretty damn busy and still have to miss some stuff, unless you guys like putting in really big days.

You got a pick-up? Or a truck that can go a little bit offroad?
