I have always been surprized by how different the climate is in Pemberton compared to Whistler, especially as it is only a half hour drive between the two locations.
Today was a prime example of the difference. I left Whistler this morning soon after 9am. The weather was a little overcast, but cold. I headed north to Pemberton to drop off some bike components for Mike Rothdram who is the team mechanic for the Performx Young Guns Team, which is sponsored by Spank and Commencal.
Here is a new video by guests Mark and George featuring the riding we offer in Perberton.
It was that time of the year again. The winter was over and the spring had begun. There was a lot of anticipation and excitement in the air, especially from guide director Dan, who had been looking forward to this day since the beginning of winter. What am I talking about?

A half hour drive North of Whistler is the historic prospecting town of Pemberton, home to some amazing mountain biking trails, which considering it’s closeness to Whistler has amazingly different to the trails there, in terms of the terrain and soil that the trails are built out of.
Here is a short 'webisode' by resident T2R guests and retained webisode creators Mark and George who joined the T2R Team trail building in Pemberton at McKenzie Cruise and also at the SORCA dig day on Lowdown. Enjoy.
