We checked out of our AirBnB house a little after 10am. Drove over to Quest University, up the Mamquam road. We parked on the pavement, and climbed .5 miles to the trailhead. Started up Stl'lhalem Sintl' - Legacy Climb trail, to the top, about 5 miles later. Took the new Fun, Upper-Half Nelson connector. Went right onto Recycle. Not sure if we need to do Recycle in another visit.
Continued to the end of Recycle to the Psuedo Tsuga 3 and 2 and 1. They have reworked these trails since our last visit. They are all bermed out and smooth, relatively for late August, and flowy. We then connected into Phil&Cam's, which have also been reworked and bermed out. I guess these two old school, geezers are starting to appreciate the bermed flow trails that the young kids like. 10 miles.
Made our nice drive home thru Vancouver, the border, and I5 with very little traffic. Had to detour over to the Peace Arch border crossing, as it had a less than 5 minute wait, compared to the truck crossing with a 30 minute wait. Great trip.<5 30="" at="" compared="" crossing.="" miles.="" minute="" minutes="" nbsp="" p="" the="" to="" truck="" wait="">5>

We still did not hit the new climbing trail, being built by RMOW (Resort Municipallity of Whistler) or the Sproat Descent (Lord of the Squirrels) trail being built by WORCA. We will hit the Lord of the Squirrels trail when we are back at Whistler in late September with Tom and Lori. The loop is supposed to be open in the summer of 2016. Maybe we will be able to do the loop.
On to stay in Squamish for the night, to avoid Friday at the border, Vancouver, and I5.
