The 2011 Westbeach Chinese Downhill

Anyone who’s ridden the Peak to Creek at Whistler knows that the 4,500 foot drop is a bit of a leg burner. But a couple hundred bucks and a Texas mickey is all it takes to inspire hordes of local shreds to point it to the creekside parkade in hopes of being the first to chug a beer and claim the prize. While parents may not approve of high-speed mayhem on groomers, we’re guessing Ministry would. Check the video–Joel Loverin took the prize alongside Vera Janssen for the ladies, and many others took home the pleasure of pointing it through choppy mogul fields and remembering what it’s like to scorpion at high speeds.
