Vincent Pernin - Trespasser

I went to film this trail with Vince in August. Trespasser is often described as the gnarliest, steepest, hardest and most technical hidden trail you can find in Whistler BC.

 Vince was a top ten pro DH'er on the French Cup and Chatel but just wanted to freeride a lot of trails! He is always whipping big jumps, looking for steep, sketchy little lines and is always smiling and joking around. He makes Trespasser look flowy and easy when it is actually really gnarly, steep and exposed. Bad ass edit!!!

 This is one of those trails were you could show someone and be like "Ya i rode down their one a bike!" and they probably wouldn't believe you.

 Honestly? It looks pretty step and technical, yes. But from what I've seen and heard so far, it sounds much more fun than scary to me. I want to hit that! Not so sure about me doing that in wet conditions though. There are some trails like that in Chatel, just shorter and less slick rock. The Alps have a lot terrain like that, not just BC.

Nice video and very nice riding. Though I would have preferred to see someone on a trail bike / AM / Enduro rock that.

 I rode this trail last summer, Holy shit it is SO much harder then it looks. Such steep and gnarly lines. if you cant ride every trail in the bike park dont even think of riding this one.

 Rode it for the first time this year and I'll confirm that it's very technical, there are multiple lines that would be up there with the most difficult even the most experienced of riders have come across. It's easily 3-4x more difficult than the hardest Bike Park trail (Goats Gulley, Lower Joyride), and quite a fair bit more difficult than Ride Don't Slide. Still, it has a dozen+ mellow, fun rock faces and some nice, flowy lome sections which is a nice change from the rallied Bike Park trails. I ride a lot of tech Shore and I'll say that there are a couple of lines (including two right at the end) that are so gnarley that it's difficult to enjoy them. You make it down in one piece and you're stoked you made it out alive!!

 I want to ride it now! I have had dreams about this trail... Oh god, I don't think I can stay at work now. If I could lump all my favorite riding aspects together in one trail it would be this one.

 Is this or is it not Sanctioned ? if its Not Sanctioned, then why is Pink bike allowing it to be displayed ? And why is this rider filming a trail people will want to ride now that they know about it ? does not compute....
Looks like a Cypress style trail, and a fun ride but question is .....
