@TrueWheelsBikeShop: The steel panther re-route off side show is not classic rake and ride. They moved a good bit of dirt for that and it feels very sterilized, verging on almost a flow trail. I will say the improvements to Low Rider are great, but that was a pretty minimal section of new trail built for that.

@Bigernmcracken: True about ramshead, goat skull is about as fall line as it gets there and not steep, but you could still have fun single track at ramshead. We are loosing trail 11 the old outback to a new blue jump trail, while that trail was not DH bike friendly it was still one of the coolest natural trails in the mountain since it really had the feel of being away from the resort. If were going to keep doing the whistler comparisons....anyone who's ever ripped a dirt merchant lap has probably ridden del bocca vista after, while it is a relatively flat green single track that is an absolute blast no matter what bike you are on. So we don't need all steep gnar single track, we just need more natural hand built stuff.

Killington is much more fun on an eundro bike, There aren't too many trails there worthy of a full DH rig. Trails off of K1 have some steeper bits but there are bits of climbing and work roads to link it all up. Even goat skull the DH track is arguably faster on a enduro bike then a DH rig. That said It would be nice to get more raw trails, especially steeper ones off the top and on rams head. Link some more trails up and limit the time spent riding a work road off the K1. To be the Whistler of the east they really do need to add in some more impressive natural trails, especially since we've been loosing natural trails at the expense of adding in flow trails on rams head. Anyone can build a flow trail or a jump line, some long sustained natural descents will go a a long way to add more character to the resort. Obviously thats easier said than done with all the permitting and red tape with the state.

661 Recon Knee Pads - Review
Mine fell apart in a pretty minor crash where I leaned the bike over and my knee dragged on the ground. I then proceeded to get a nice cut on my knee since the pad ripped apart during the fall. The other pad was also falling apart with stitches ripping out..So these might protect you in minor impacts.

Whistler Village Randoms: Crankworx 2016
@Mattin: Well obviously that was mostly sarcasm there bro. Still running a single compound or even a dual rear would be much nicer than having to run 2 3c tires. My 3c DHF in the rear was shot after 8 days of riding half of which were bike park days at whistler. Cornering knobs are all cracked and breaking down same with breaking knobs. Sure two 3c max grips are the way to go if your racing, but not if your trying to get at least a month out of a set of tires. They are still way better than Schwable vert star compound at least.
