 Awesome roundup; grats to all winners - I'm already planning on my head how to make it to there next year Big Grin

@pinkbike wondering if I could make a couple suggestions for the league :

- was tricky to have teams changed because of time difference - any chance we could pre-pick our team for all the events and then adjust as we go

- a lot of riders listed - able to sort ( discipline, or value, for exampke ) or search in the table would come handy

 Mountain biking: where fantasy contest winners win more than the actual participants of the real contests they're betting on...

 Just got back from an epic week, you would be surprised how little you can do it on. Obviously you can also blitz it! Good acommodation breakfast and flights less than £1100. What you do from there is upto you. But you can operate on a budget!

 Done two weeks a couple years ago for £1500, As long as you don't eat out much its not to bad!

 @willaasss So did you do a bit of a weekly 'big shop' then and have some of your meals in the hotel?

 @priest55: Rented out someones holiday home so we had a garage, kitchen etc fella. Supermarkets are expensive too but yea we cooked a bit and had breakfast in. There are a couple of cheaper places to eat, El Furnature (however its spelled) in town is one of the cheapest by far. We went at the very start of September tho and got lucky (we didn't know) because a season pass becomes half price so was cheaper than paying for two weeks. Only downside to sept was the creekside gondala was only open on weekends, but at the time 2017 there weren't many trails over there so was ok.

 @priest55: Accommodation will be your biggest expense and I'd book it now rather than waiting haha.

There's a $35 bus return trip Vancouver to Whistler, the local bus in town is $2.50 each way, taxi's are affordable if there's 4 of you. Lift Tickets are pricey - but there's biking all over the valley so don't feel like every day has to be Bike Park, do Lord of the Squirrels.
There's plenty of restaurant specials if you seek out the happy hours. El Furnies is horrific too btw. Brickworks always has specials, Dubh Linn Gate does a reasonably priced meal, 2 breweries in Function (Coast Mountain and Whistler Brewing) have very reasonably priced beers.

There are hundreds of broke, Australia/NZ/Brits/the rest earning sweet fa - if they can work it out I am sure you can!
