ShulapsShreddin....


It's tough to find a better "Big Mountain "ride near Vancouver than the Shulaps. I love showing this unique traverse I've put together to friends who haven't hit it yet. Andy, Paul and Scott we those guys last week-end....

         
Once again the weather looked questionable on the coast but as we neared the Shulaps all looked good!


The grunt up was as pleasurable as ever....



And the creek crossings were a little hectic....



The Shulaps alpine was spectacular as ever...



Redneckery on the other side of the valley....


Killer views of Whitecap's NF....


And the Bridge River Valley with Sloan, Thiassi, Vayu, Dickson above Gun and Carpenter lakes....


The new Norco Sight 650b bike was an amazing tool!


Time to drop in!


 

5000ft of single-track right to the truck!


After camping at what Andy declared "the worst spot ever" we headed over to the North Cinnabar trail for a couple of laps....





It didn't disappoint....

Was there any blowdown on Brett Creek? I've heard rumours to that effect. (We're riding Shulaps next week, too.)

Ya, lots of blowdown that we couldn't take care of. Still enjoyable however....
