Whistler 2012: A Local's Guide

A few months ago Ian Morrison needed some training for beer league, so he called up none other than Steve Smith. Now, the tables have turned and Ian shows Steve the best of Whistler in preparation for Crankworx.

 Nelson B.C is the best riding place.

 I wish I was canadian. I'd be great at riding bikes, I'd have great trails a step from my house, and I wouldn't feel cold temperatures... Win! :-) Really..

 Yeah.
Canada seemes to be best place to live if you're in to mtb.
I really envy you all those awsome bike parks.
But hell, if you ain got what you like, you like what you got. Wink

 yeah you know the southeast has some trails.....yeah!! but not really all we have coldwater, windrock, and like North Carolina

 @johndhill

 Highland MTB Park may not be the best but its ours and not a bad place for my first concussion and a few broken ribs.....Awesome riding and constantly improving...New lines almost every year
  • + 2
 Thats true but what do your injuries have to do with this.
  • + 0
 North star Mammoth Downieville Santa Cruz San Clemente California is awesome
  • + 2
 There is no legal stuff in Santa Cruz (except demo and a few dirt jump spots). Everyone stop shitting trash all over the trails some of us maintain.

Honestly North Star is more of a lack of a better spot.
Mammoth is basically a paved North Star.
Of the ones you mentioned this is my opinion.

You did miss Blackrock and Ashland Oregon, which are both epic and mostly legal (so they can be maintained better).
  • + 1
 Yes everything in Santa Cruz is illegal but it doesn't make it less fun. And yeah I did miss some but I was just stating a few that popped in my head the quickest.

 screw all you guys i live in atlanta

 Haha f*ckin clown shoes, that made me laugh.
  • + 18
 I don't get the joke about clown shoes can someone fill me in?
  • + 16
 ahaha im not too sure myself but im think its cus they were ripping SO hard down scheleyer and fast trails then he sais" lets do clown shoes" which is a slow, techy and difficult ladder trail, thats my assumption
  • + 5
 Makes sense thx
  • - 3
 or because it's a hard trail, and he says 'No, steve, no.' as a joke for it being easy?
  • + 3
 Googled it, it's more like old school freeride slow and technical trails. Wade Simmons era.
  • + 5
 Clown shoes is hell... I rode it just to claim that I hit that final drop but it is hell.

 Nelson B.C is the best for riding.
  • + 4
 am i the only one who actually liked clown shoes? not to mention i got an awesome desktop photo of me on the last drop
  • + 13
 yes yes you are... The purpose of clown shoes as a trail is to claim hitting the last drop.
  • + 18
 and this is why ian morrison is becoming one of my favorite riders
  • + 14
 That 'rest day' I was planning on tomorrow is now not going to happen because of this video...thanks guys!
  • + 9
 Awesome, just awesome but to be honest I could of done without the slo-mo "shake your wet hair" scene. I was watching this at work and someone walked by right when it came on -- I was seriously embarrassed -- A little too homo-erotic for me...

Here comes the neg props!
  • + 11
 I got passed by them on lower A-Line, and i was watching from the lift queue when they got filmed heading into the GLC, YES!
  • + 12
 thanks sweet cheeks!

 I don't think it's correct for some people to come here just to insult others like i always see on these coments. we are all here for the same reason, because we like to ride ! Sorry if the English is not the best, i just want to say what i feel about it. Anyway, great video Smile

 Canadians wearing gloves! I Like It!

 When it comes to great places to live you cant go wrong with the North Shore of vancouver just 1 hour from whsitler 45 minutes to squamish and 2 hours to pemberton also you can ride all through the winter on the shore
  • + 2
 Too unfair... When someone says "bikepark" here in Finland, it usually means some crappy hill that you go from top to bottom in 30 seconds...

 i pretend I am canadian every summer for awhile.. love canada.. but glad i live in Colorado in the winter.
