While Whistler and the North Shore ski hills usually get buried under plenty of snow most years, winter tends not to stick around in town and on the mountain bike trails of the Shore. This year, it hit hard and stayed long, leaving riders scratching their heads trying to find things to do in the newly blanketed landscape.
But the Godfather of Freeride wouldn't let Old Man Winter stop him from getting out for a shred - Simmons grabs some Rocky Mountain fat bikes and convinces Ken Maude, iconic rider and owner of Lynn Valley Bikes, to have a snow day of shredding the Shore.
