Video: Trail Engaged - An Update From Whistler Mountain Bike Park's Trail Crew

Sep 1, 2019
by WhistlerMountain BikePark  

Trail Engaged is back for Season 3. Our team of scientists and analysts have been hard at work reviewing your comments, suggestions and questions for this season. We’ve had a very big year in the Bike Park and we must thank you for your previous year’s suggestions for improving the park. If you have an idea that would make our world a better place, have a suggestion on how to make a feature better, or simply have a burning question eating you up inside, this is how you let us know. We won't be able to respond to everyone's happy suggestions, but we'll do our best to keep the Bike Park in tip top shape.

Peter Matthews, a veteran of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park Trail Crew and no stranger to your suggestions is here to respond and show you how you’re making a difference. Thank you for your suggestions.

Don’t forget to check out Season 1 and 2 here.

Episode One

In the first episode of the third season we talk about naming trails, explain a little more in depth about our Golden Nug contest and show you how to check the remaining days on your pass.

 I don't care that I'll never win Fantasy DH/Enduro/XC/Crankworx, winning the t-shirt is all I'll ever need. Thanks Peter!

 I particularly like the dodge of the pass days remaining question - what about faxing, or mailing our request for days remaining via Canada Post? Ouija board? I wonder how many takes they had to do before he managed to not blurt out VAIL ARE LUDDITES!

Seriously, Vail. Sort it out. Web. Or App. Pick one or both - it's not rocket surgery. While you're at it - maybe put the lift details back.

 "The Jimi Sendtricks Experience", or "The Jimi Sendrix Experience"?

Either way that was legitimate phucking genius and if there's not a trail of that name in the coming few seasons, It'll be a damn shame!!!

 I have an idea... make the world (outside of Whistler) a better place. Come to Snow Summit and teach those guys how to build with a little creativity and flow.
