    Armour, camleback, neck brace (quick moving heads to double take all the dirty girls) and your bike

    Since you are only here one day, stick to whistler mountain, the valley has tonnes to offer, but its best left untouched unless you have more time

    Bring a camera - it is beautiful there Well, you live in BC so you may be used to it, but compared to the east coast, it is stunning

    Terrain is a little different but I would assume similar in beauty. He is further east than us so his area is beginning to look more like idaho than the bc of the lower mainland

    I was supposed to have a Whistler trip this summer. Alas, my friend flaked (I think he may have fallen off the face of the Earth because I haven't heard from him in months) and I won't be going to Whistler.

    On the plus side though, it looks like I'll be heading off to Mammoth in a couple of weeks!

    Ya I remember you mentioning it. To bad I would have like to give you the tour. I likely wouldn't have ridden xc with you (you would destroy me on hills I am sure) but I could at least point you in the right direction for some epic rides You seem a prime candidate for kill me thrill me to Comfortably Numb

    I'll make it up there some time in the not too distant future but it probably won't be until next summer. By then, I hope to be mounted atop a nice, 6 inch travel, Santa Cruz Nomad since my riding is getting increasingly more aggressive. Since I'm a bigger rider anyway (195lbs), I'm not sure the extra 4-5 pounds on the bike is going to hurt my climbing all that much.

    I doubt you would notice. I ride with some serious xc guys when they are doing the "lets go for a casual ride" days. They still smoke me (their casual xc ride is freaking work for me haha) But honestly a decent 6in with good valving and only 4 pounds more. I bet it will be fine. No xc race machine but thats the PERFECT build for whistler.

    I'm not an XC racer anyway so that's out the window. I like to do the occasional 24hour race but I'm not in it to win it (my teams generally come in upper-middle of the pack), I'm in it for the fun of it!

    Hopefully I'll be starting a new job here soon which will enable me to get a new ride.

    Specifics about Whistler

    2 Links to what you need. My buddy entered it last year as a solo. Very fun course (well as fun as 24hours on a bike can be)
