Water jump as of March 9th

Water jump is a tad full.

Very. lol

The rain is not helping the situation.

There are some wet spots through out the park - to be expected with all this rain. The main footing aroung the water jump area is very good. Avoid some of the darkest trails as they are really wet.

Thanks everyone!!!

“Thanks to the two trailer loads of riders (all 8 of you) who came to school on our closed cross country course so you could prepare to ride at Aspen in the US. We were busy preparing for our event next weekend (which is why the course was closed) so that the course can be the best that it could be for our faithful BC riders who are staying in BC to compete.” If we knew for sure who you are, we would be asking for a donation to help repair the footing damage that yo...
