Hi Guys! Went out for another ride today and…. We’ve had a bit of a roller coaster fall here around Whistler and Pemberton. Good early snow led to some fun early season rides. And then it rained. And it rained a lot. And to the top. We …
There are two types of mountain sledders on this planet: those who choose to educate themselves about avalanches, and those who don’t. Why anyone would choose not to is beyond me, but hey, it’s your world, I’m just living in it. If you sled in the mountains, you are also …
Ever since Logan Thibodeau was a young sledder he had dreams of becoming a sponsored rider, and getting photos in magazines. Now, at thirty years of age, it has become a reality, however, like all other athletes with aspirations of rising to the top, Logan figured out early that he can’t do …
