 When I grow up, I want to be a park rat until my wrists pop and I'm forced to live on morphine into my old age; I'd even fight a bear to make it happen

 See kids, it is still possible to put a f**king awesome tunes into riding edits...it doesn't have to be some gay electro all the friggin' time. Right on Tippie!
  • 5 2
 Damn you beat me to the punch! For all those kids out there that was Danzig - Mother. Glen Danzig also known for being the original singer of "The Misfits". Another group you should put on you ipod oh sorry I mean itunes or iphone or whatever you kids are using nowadays...

 Buddy youre only 33 get with it...

 How many kids wearing a Misfits shirts even know this was the same guy?

 I love both songs on this edit. The first song, not yet mentioned, is Devo "Gut Feeling". I like the version on the "Life Aquatic" movie soundtrack best.

 Danzig is a legend for sure, but he is also known to be a huge douchebag.

 Why should I get with it? Yeah I am 33 but I rock it old school. I have a discman, an imitation ipod, a non smart phone nokia 1209, a laptop and i'm not on facebook, twitter or whatever else is in at the moment. I'd rather spend money on my bike or traveling than keeping uptodate with the latest bs gadgetry even if it means I'm not "cool"...

 Park is in amazing condition right now, and having decent beats at the bottom was a huge bonus. Kudos to whomever was playing DJ, having old school rock and metal was sooooo sick for a change.

 Agreed, the tunes bumping outta the Oakley trailer were great. Helped to pass the time in the lift line.

 Don't feel too bad. Most of Whistlers trails have less than 1200 feet elevation change. Its only once you get up to Garbo that the elevation becomes more substantial

 I moved to Vancouver pretty much so I could ride Whistler

 Its ok nick an aussie winter is still better weather than a euro summer.

 My local park is all technical, loose and rough stuff with lots of rocks and roots and steep as hell, I would love to have something like A-Line to relax and enjoy a bit between runs.

 The lift line at 4:55 is crazy

 yeah trails look amazing, but damn the lines look brutal.

 Fitz chair, garbo chair, peak chair. Also whistler gondola but it accesses the same terrain. Early in the season it's just the fitz zone.
