It's Whistmas, baby! The crew up at the Whistler Bike Park have been working hard preparing everything for the 2021 season. Christina Chappetta was on site to give us a rundown of the changes and to catch up with the local shredders before hitting the park for some laps of her own.

 Who knows what will happen with the border. But, my guess is that it will stay closed until Labour Day.

 @CircusMaximus: I bet Canada will open it's borders before we do to you, unfortunately, because our government is insanely dysfunctional.

Americans can go to europe right now but they can't come here, makes total sense right.

I've missed 2 cat skiing trips Frown to nelson....

 @konamat: I showed up at 5pm and it was back all the way to the grocery store and liquor store. Didn't even bother sitting in the line. Easily over an hour I would say

 It was about an hour yesterday and 1.5 hours today. I bet it’ll be 2 hours tomorrow and maybe 3 hours this weekend. Tell your cousins. Really sucks here. I heard Squamish is good right now and the people are super welcoming . Check that out. @konamat:

 Watching Christina (and Jason) ride is SO fun! PURE joy! Thanks for alleviating my broken ankle pain with your laughs and woops!

 Okay I started laughing about halfway through when I realized the commentary could fairly easily be substituted into a sensual adult video. Apparently, satisfaction from biking vs that other activity yields a similar human response, lol.

 The non bikepark trails in Whistler are better than the bikepark. Just saying.

 With all the nonsense happening here in Ontario and the "destruction" of what was a great little bike park (i.e. Blue Mountain Bike Park) it might actually be the year I travel out that way!! Please, just stay the F&$K OPEN!!
