The time of year is upon us, that time when things shift away from skiing…opening a great void in our lives. What are we to do without our beloved snow capped mountains? If you feel at a loss with what to do next, check out the above video then go buy a downhill mountain bike. Whistler Bike Park opened just a couple weeks ago, and judging by the moist, intense, and beautifully slowed down video from early spring, things are teeing off.
Northstar Bike Park opening date: June 15th
In my opinion, not much can compare to skiing. But mountain biking certainly comes close to feeding that desire for heart thumping, high speed enjoyment in the mountains. So what’s your story? Have you dusted off the bike yet? Or do you indulge in some other form of summertime fun…maybe climbing, backpacking, kayaking…the summer time options are endless! You know what they say, you come to the mountains for the winter, but you stay for the summer.
